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?

Looks like a lot of downtown office workers are headed for a supercasual Friday. A Metro fire and a power outage are keeping hordes of salarymen on the sidewalks, unable to boot up in their offices. A correspondent in the area informs us that a clock on the 1300 block of F Street NW stopped at 7:20—a bit of trivia that comports with reports that a fire broke out on Metrorail tracks around that time. We will be updating this story as it breaks.
