We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

Overheard at the laundromat on 7th Street NW:

“I need to call that bitch and get some counseling!” – one man to another, both waiting for laundry

“With kneepads, you can face the world!” woman to man playing Pac-Man

“He’s lucky, he doesn’t have to stand in line to vote. He’s in a wheelchair.” attendant to customer

“I’m voting for McCain!” attendant to customers, prompting laughter

“Hey, anyone wanna buy my vote?” possibly homeless guy to various laundromat patrons
