From WMATA:

“Metro General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld today announced enhanced midday rail service on Friday, January 27, to support additional ridership expected for the 2017 March for Life.

During Friday’s midday hours, between the morning and evening rush hours, Metro will run trains about every 8 minutes on each line, resulting in service every 2-4 minutes at stations in the Downtown core. In addition, Wiedefeld announced that Metro will run more 8-car trains (the longest train length possible), all midday track work will be cancelled, and additional staff will be on hand to assist visitors.”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

“Dear PoPville,

The headline for Petula Dvorak‘s column on the men at Saturday’s march currently reads “At the Women’s March, the men mattered, too.”

But until 10:04 Sunday morning, as the URL hints, it was *mind-bogglingly* different.

Fortunately, I managed to retrieve that version from my phone’s cache and get a screenshot…

How in the hell could the Washington Post possibly be this obtuse?”

His longevity is extraordinary. I’m starting to look forward to see what he comes up with when we finally go cashless once and for all… But as always, thanks to a reader for sending the heads up so you don’t get scammed if you are a kind soul and unfamiliar.

He’s at “Metro Center at the Forever 21 entrance” 1025 F Street, NW.
