What’s going on in Baltimore reminded me of this emergency announcement notice I once spotted at the Shakespeare Theatre in Chinatown. I’m all for preparedness but to be honest the fact that it even exists is unsettling. Let’s hope thoughtful people can work together to address past injustices, prevent future ones and make sure that this announcement is never heard.

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.
