“I don’t know who Muriel Bowser is,” Terri writes, “but she has just lost my vote.” Terri’s beef’s got nothing to do with stadiums, safety, or schools: She returned home from a shopping trip to find that a sign for Bowser (reportedly a potential candidate for Mayor Adrian Fenty’s vacated Council seat) had taken root in her yard. “The sign is going in the trash,” the irate Terri says, “and I will vote for anyone but her.” But Dodie defends the “considerate and savvy” Bowser, posting an apologetic note Bowser had left on a Takoma list after the same thing happened there—which suggests that unwanted campaign signs may simply be part of the District’s streetscape.
