“Dear PoPville,

Looking for some help to see if any witnesses were around at 4:30am at Florida and P st NE, the morning of March 29th. My brother was struck on his bike in the crosswalk of P st by a red light running driver and was hurt pretty bad. He has already had surgery to put a rod in his leg and may have a broken wrist too. We are looking into getting some camera footage from the XM building. Apparently the driver was not ticketed and they aren’t even calling it an accident just an incident. My brother was heading home from his bartending job and is now in a pretty bad spot with no health insurance, and he can’t work to support himself. Not really wanting to start the standard cars vs bikes flame war just trying to see if anyone was around at that time – its a long shot I know, but figured I would try.”

UPDATE: Thanks to a reader for sending the photo above:

“Terrible sign telling people. Just saw someone taking out the register / computer.”

@39Candles tweets us:

“Anyone know why Yo Sushi in Union Station is closed? Sign says closed for the weekend …”

They are closed permanently. I put in a call to Union Station and they say they are closed for good. Yo! Sushi opened up in Union Station over the summer of 2012. They were also supposed to open a second location at 7th and H St, NW in Chinatown but that deal fell through a while ago. I guess conveyor belt sushi just isn’t our thing.

I recently noticed the awesome old liquor sign and North – East Clock had been taken down at Union Market:

I’m not saying I’m against all the development, quite the contrary. I just happen to also love these signs so I’m gonna take this opportunity to show you some of my other favorites before they inevitably vanish too:
