“Dear PoP,

So everyone has probably heard by now that one of the Tea Party bloggers has warned rally participants that the green/yellow line is too dangerous to ride. I think as a public service, we should point out to them more of the specific dangers they might face –

Dangers like:

– Shoppers coming out of Bed Bath and Beyond can bump you with their new ironing boards.
– You can get serious brain freeze from eating your FroYo too fast.
– There are peanuts available at Yes Organic market.
– You could walk into one of the many flagpoles at the Navy Memorial.

And of course the biggest danger – the US Constitution is housed in the National Archives. . .”

Though there was this fight last night

“Dear PoP,

Just wanted to pass along that perhaps I’m not the only one who forgot its move in weekend at some schools and Target is a disaster area. The hoards of parents carrying full size mirrors and cleaning supplies paired with the renovation for groceries has made this place a jungle. Perhaps anyone thinking of a weekend trip to Target should venture to VA or elsewhere because the lines are long and they are cleaned out and very disorganized. For example dry catfood is now upstairs next to baby supplies, not with all the other pet food/litter downstairs….”

You are officially warned!!!

  • And, if you know what’s good for you, stay away from downtown this weekend. The nutters are already in abundance down there – couldn’t even get a good run on the mall in.

  • Scared of real, patriotic Americans taking back their country? Why don’t you jump on your rascal scooter and join us?

  • They should have their rally out in the Pallisades where they’d feel more comfortable.

    • or if they hate big government, then don’t have the rally at the federal center.

      i nominate oklahoma city on the site of the terrorist attack.

  • Sure, it’s easy to us locals to make fun of that Tea Party email, but it’s generally good advice, including the Redline comment. Nothing for tourists to see on the Redline really. (I live on the Redline BTW.)

  • I advice the diverse comunity living around the green and yellow line to avoid the Lincoln monument tomorrow, cause may be you are at risk of being linched by some nut cases that feel within the tea party like fish in the water.

    • After what has happened in your community as of late – I can understand your apprehension and your fear.

  • At least they can probably spell lynched correctly.

  • I can’t wait till this is over and not because of any large crowd. (The mon-fri commuter crowd is larger) For how small a number they are bringing they are getting a disproportionate amount of press. Look at the first few anti-war marches, the pro-choice march and compare coverage. Too bad your real support wasn’t reflected in coverage.

    Now I’ve wasted time thinking about this. That’s my friday rant.

  • Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
    Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • Let’s not forget that Glenn Beck has never addressed whether he raped and murdered a girl in 1990.

  • I don’t even know anything about those Tea Party people, but they sure sound stupid… and maybe evil.

  • Stupidity? Young punks beating the shit out of someone on a public train? (again!) WTF, this city sucks.

  • Target sent me a $10 coupon in the mail, as an incentive to keep shopping through their mess. It is a hassle–last week was worse, with back-to-school shoppers. But I don’t think its so bad that it warrants a letter of warning to residents.

  • Just think of how far we’ve come in this country when even White Pride rally attendees pay lip service to MLK!
