City Paper is not for tourists
The Post had a story on April 9 about a guy who thinks DC’s spoke-system grid was designed to depict a pentagram, thus proving the demonic core of the nation’s capital. The five-pointed star has terminuses at Dupont and Logan circles to the North, Washington Circle to the West, Vernon Square to the East and, finally, traveling along Connecticut and Vermont avenues, the White House to the South. The Mayflower Hotel is near the center of the pentagram, as is the strange model white house we discovered several months back at Scott Circle. The plastic toy, which someone eventually painted black, lines up perfectly with the real White House in the distance down 16th Street. Which leads me to wonder if the guerrilla art was really a satanic ritual. Woo! Fun with the devil!
