For those that went to the annual High Heels Race (17th St, NW in Dupont) how was it this year? One reader shares their experience:

“I loved attending last night’s drag heel race near Dupont until about 20 minutes after the race when the police decided that the street needed to be cleared, and did such with a lot of force and rudeness, using motorcycles with loud sirens to push people onto the sidewalks so that we literally could not leave, causing more of a crowd problem than they had before. It seems doubtful to me that many cars would be inconvenienced by another half hour of road closure at 10 PM on a Tuesday, and I’m wondering if anyone else felt these actions were unnecessary, unproductive, and possibly disrespectful. I was shocked that they felt this was the best way to handle the situation. Am I naive to think that common sense and patience should be the norm, especially at an event about tolerance and celebrating all walks of life?”
