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,

Wondering if you or anyone can shed some light on this: for the past week or two at least, the yellow line trains have been going quite slow over the bridge to and from Virginia. One morning, the conductor announced that the train was “required to go at a restricted speed between L’Enfant Plaza and Pentagon,” but other than that I haven’t seen any announcement or explanation. Does anyone know what’s going on?”

another reader writes:

“Metro has imposed speed restrictions on various portions of its track in response to the recent derailment. The red line train has gotten SUPER SLOW on certain stretches of track during my commute lately, resulting in noticeable delays. It seems reasonable to infer that the same defect that caused the derailment may be rampant throughout the system. Given that metro is subject to zero accountability, I worry that it may just be a matter of time before more people die.”

The Washington Post reported:

“Metro has implemented speed restrictions on curves throughout the system. That means trains are slowing to 35 mph to 40 mph as they approach a curve. The restrictions are in place as part of what Metro calls an “aggressive campaign” to inspect curved sections of track following the Aug. 6 derailment between the Federal Triangle and Smithsonian Metro stations.”

comparing apartment buildings near Mt Pleasant/Adams-Morgan

“I’m looking at pretty comparable 1-bedroom apartments in the Chalfonte (Harvard and Argonne, off 16th), the Argonne (same), and the Park Meridian (16th and Euclid). The sizes and prices are similar enough that the decision really comes down to building quality. Does anyone have recent experience with any of these buildings? If so, can you speak to pests, management responsiveness (or management attempts to screw renters), heating/cooling issues, noise, construction, or anything else that might be relevant? Thank you!”
