  • Interesting that I have read hundreds and hundreds of comments on PoP about DC, DC schools, the problems with DC’s youth, what is being done wrong, and what should be done better. Yet, a perfectly positive post about a charity fundraiser for a great organization serving DC’s students has recieved not even one comment. That is positively puzzling to me. Perhaps it serves as a perfect example of why things are the way they are in DC, and why they will not improve anytime soon…
