“Dear PoPville,

Just a heads up: I took my dog on a walk today. I live in NoMa but felt like checking out the inauguration crowds so I walked him up to union station.

At first, everything seemed to be going fine, but after walking around union station area for a couple minutes, a man in a Trump shirt, hat, and Georgians for Trump button came over to me. He must have noticed my dog’s rainbow leash because he asked if I am a “faggot” and when I did not respond, he proceeded to tell me that he hopes “Trump puts all the gays in jail.” At that point, I knew I needed to get home and I walked away as quickly as possible.”

“As tens of thousands of visitors arrive for the Women’s March on Washington, Metro has some important service updates, and well as safety and travel tips for those planning to use the rail system.

Due to security and logistical considerations, Federal Triangle Station will be closed Saturday. Customers should use Metro Center Station instead, which is located 0.3 miles (3 blocks) north at 12th and F streets NW. All other Metro stations will be open.

As previously announced, the Metrorail system will open two hours early — at 5 a.m. — on Saturday and add up to two dozen additional trains to accommodate increased ridership. Trains will run on an “enhanced Saturday schedule” with no track work on any line. Trains will depart stations at the end of each line every 12 minutes, resulting in service every 4 to 6 minutes at all stations in Downtown DC. (more…)

Apparently Seth Meyers is gaining a foothold in DC. Which I guess is a good thing for Late Night with Seth Meyers and NBC. I think I need a freaking beer. The ducklings didn’t do it for me… Thanks to Kelley for sending:

“saw some flyers pinned to trees in AdMo calling Seth Myers a “Lügen.”

My googling skills tell me that Lugen means:

“peer, look, glance

lie, tell an untruthful statement, cheat, tell a lie, tell untruth

falsity, lie, tale, untruth”
