Update: MPD says the body found in Meridian Hill Park is still “an undetermined death at this time.” In happier news the Sheltie has been found!

This PoPtrekker was a reader request. It was not possible to mention all the sights on U Street (there are just too many) so I decided to focus on some that may fall slightly below the radar and new development. True story: I thought the filming was on Sunday but it really was Saturday, so I double timed it down there and was 45 minutes late. Sorry IA! As a result I was a little frazzled in the begining and prattle on a bit in front of the Japanese market and Healing Center but it smooths out after that. Sorry ’bout that!

In a previous PoPtrekker we looked at Georgia Ave. south of the metro. I received many emails requesting north Georgia Ave. be featured. So here we are. A couple of things, this one runs a bit longer than past ones but we still had to cut out some notable spots. It’s just impossible to get everything. Also, I think I say “umm, ahh” about 127 times. As is certainly no surprise, PoPtrekker is filmed without a script and pretty much all on one take. So I use the “umms, and ahhs” to think about what I’m gonna say. But I’ll definitely work on that for future volumes.

First, there is a strip mall where I mention that it reminds me of one on 13th Street that got torn down. That was an error, of course I was thinking of the Nehemiah Shopping center that got torn down on 14th Street near Chapin. Second, I have to tell my mom – yes, I’m gonna get a haircut soon!

Ed. Note: I’d like to quickly explain why I call the Washington City Paper’s Jule Banville an idiot. You may recall a few weeks ago the City Paper launched it’s “best of” issue. I know I shouldn’t respond to this but, damn it, I can be weak at times. At any rate, Ms. Banville penned a section called the Best Ridiculous Prince of Petworth Feature. Predictably, she selected the door of the day feature, and oddly a post on the residences at Georgia Ave. For her second “ridiculous” feature, she selected PoPtrekker. While not very witty it was actually quite a compliment to be given my own section. Here’s where I have a problem with what Ms. Banville wrote:

“…he then announces that PoPtrekker is brought to us “by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner Foundation.”…And we have to ask: Journalists are losing their jobs faster than they can say “twitterer” and a foundation is giving money to a blogger for this?”

Well, Jule, while it is clear that you are far cooler than I am, I thought the City Paper was an actual newspaper. Even if this was an obvious attempt at a snarky piece, I imagine you could have done a quick google search on the Ben and Sylvia Gardner Foundation and you would have found – nothing. That’s because the Ben and Sylvia Gardner Foundation is not a foundation. It is a tribute to my grandparents. So keep up the good work Jule and thanks for all the attention. You’ll have to let me buy you a beer sometime so I can properly show my gratitude. And I have to ask: Do you consider yourself a journalist?
