On the other hand, it’s only $250 a month…thanks to a reader for sending.

From Craigslist:

“It isn’t meant to sound sexual, but i mean for someone to lay in the same bed. Definitely would prefer a woman haha.

Anyway, I’m Scott. Looking for a possible tenant and friend.
Mentally sane, friendly, and composed is how i would describe myself , but during the fall/winter I can be a bit down, but that’s nothing to worry about, i act the same either way.
But what i’m offering is my room , and slight utility use if you’re just going to sleep here, and then leave the next morning. But will clearly change upon the dynamic .

Meaning you get free internet, free fridge use(but please ask if you want to use someone else’s food/drink), free outlets at reasonable use, backyard space, kitchen use, bathroom use, and some closet storage space, and a side on my queen size bed.

Yes, we will be sharing a bed. (more…)

Anybody know more details here? And not to be too cynical but I wonder how many of these things are gonna get swiped? Or is the some crazy evade mode/defense mechanism?

“Dear PoPville,

Have you heard anything about the fireworks that were set off last night at 6:30pm in Kalorama Park?”

I got tons of reports and confirmations @PoPville on twitter last night but nobody was able to provide more info. Think somebody came into a nice personal stash or was this an organized/semi organized thing?

A reader reports:

“My guess is some sort of performance art. Person with his face wrapped up in tape or gauze, just sitting there like a statue. Uniformed MPD blocking cars and foot traffic. Block now taped off.”

Update: Another reader reports:

“Its been removed, police say it was a mannequin”

Though another reader reports:

“I was wondering what this was. Drove by and his hands are now handcuffed behind his back and he and the chair lying on side.”
