You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
“Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser released the following statement in support of MPD Chief Cathy Lanier:
“After 25 years of policing DC streets, deploying officers and strategies, and building a force of highly qualified officers and leaders, in the good times and the tough times, too, I have every confidence in Chief Lanier.”
From the DC Police Union:
Members of the DC Police Union were asked the following question:
“Do you have confidence that Chief Cathy Lanier is able to properly manage the resources of the Metropolitan Police Department and keep the citizens safe?”
The members had the choice of answering YES or NO.
1,150 members responded to the poll and 1,122 answered NO, they do not have confidence in Chief Lanier‘s ability to manage MPD and keep the citizens of the District safe.
That‘s an overwhelming 97.5% that answered NO; they DO NOT have confidence in the Chief‘s leadership.”

From an email:
“I just wanted to let you know that we’ll be opening up between Chipotle and the Barnes & Noble in a few months. We just finalized our lease this week and will be starting build-out as soon as we can. Build-out will probably take about 3 months. The shop will be called Wardman Wines, and in addition to wine, we will have a good selection of beer and spirits, as well as wine-appropriate snacks. In addition, we plan on having regular tasting events and a full schedule of wine classes. We’re very excited to be coming to the neighborhood.”
Not sure how to process this one but I played squash I’d be pretty psyched. Previously we learned:
“This fall EastBanc will break ground on Squash on Fire — a $12 million, state-of-the-art, 20,000-square-foot indoor squash facility as an integral piece of the $200 million West End Library and Fire Station mixed-use residential project. When completed, Squash on Fire will include eight courts and a full-service restaurant situated atop of the newly renovated fire station.”
I still don’t understand the thought process of having your outdoor steps carpeted but it makes me smile every time I see one. You don’t ever see them anymore – this one’s hanging on in Columbia Heights.
“On today’s date at approximately 645pm officers were called to the 900 block of 3rd Street SW in reference to a shooting. Members discovered a juvenile female and an adult male both suffering from gunshot wounds. They were transported to area hospitals with non life threatening injuries.”
