You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. I’ll open this thread every morning at 10am.

Reader Rant:

“My house got burglarized on Friday, around 11am on 14th ST NW (Upshur Park area). The neighbors stated that two young adult males were pounding on the doors on my block. When my neighbor answered his door, one of the males asked for “Shakera” and just turned away when told she didn’t live there. They apparently pounded on my door for a while and were peering through the windows. I just want to alert readers about their MO…call the police if you see anything similar happening in your neighborhood. They were pretty bold, as they simply walked out of the front door with a 42-inch TV! As a result, we are installing an alarm system to try to deter future thieves.”

Reader Revel (Props to the Cops):

“Due to my own carelessness I got a flat tire driving home on Saturday and just tried to get home driving slowly (I know, this is bad). Some police were directing traffic at 16th and Kennedy – they asked if I had a flat and pretty much insisted that they change it. I really didn’t expect it and I was very grateful. I’ll try to research this online, but do you or readers know who/where to contact to put in a good word for the nice guy that did this?”

That’s the 4th Police District. You can send a note of thanks to the commander – [email protected]
