“This is my DC-Metro themed Peep’s diorama entitled “Peeps on the Platform.” Startled peeps are standing on the platform at the L’Peep Plaza metro stop, which is single-tracking and experiencing delays as smoke creeps into the tunnel. Above ground, Police Peeps have blocked off the station with caution tape as a small group of Protesting Peeple have begun to gather.”

All entries should be emailed to [email protected] with ‘The PoP Peep Project’ in the subject line. Please include a brief description about your entry and please include 2 photos, one closeup and one capturing the whole scene. Entries should be based on local topics of interest if possible and sent by Friday, April 28th. Depending on how many I receive, I’ll try to post all as I get them. I will then pick 5-10 finalists that you guys will vote on. I will take the winners out to dinner (courtesy Carmine’s Family Style Italian Restaurant) and drinks (unless the high school kids win, then just dinner.) I will also bury the winners (and 2nd and 3rd place) in PoPville t-shirts. Good luck!!

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,

The new entrance portal to 395 from Massachusetts Ave which opened this weekend?

“the perfectly clear new signage that was there to guide motorists this morning…”

Per the press release, the goals of the portal are to “achieve improved traffic flow and a much safer environment for pedestrians and bicyclists.” It fails on both scores.The new portal is ONLY for traffic entering 395 from Mass Ave heading east.

What is not mentioned in the DDOT press release, but is acknowledged here is that the existing entrance ramp on third street was used by THREE other sources of traffic: (more…)
