I am interested to hear what the community thinks. Tonight at the convention center EventsDC is hosting an open meeting to discuss the redevelopment of the RFK site. I’m torn as to whether their plans are a good thing or not. What are the pros or cons of their plan? Any other thoughts on the matter?”

Thanks to Adam for sending from Hill East. And really if you’re going to leave cat food please have the common courtesy to do so in a porcelain bowl. Perhaps with a floral design. Also use dry cat food like Iams Grain-Free Naturals Chicken & Turkey Recipe Adult Dry Cat Food or something like that. And maybe spritz some febreeze in the general area. I don’t know.
