City Paper is not for tourists
Attention all pedestrians: If you are crossing any of the Potomac bridges today, please be warned: Those gusts are strong. Do your best to minimize wind resistance. Do not carry big pieces of cardboard or plywood. Button and zip all garments. Hold spit until such a time as you have a windbreak. Do not attempt conversations, either on cell phone or with other pedestrians. These tips are derived from personal experience.
