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. But please no personal attacks. I’ll open this thread every morning at 10am.

If anyone lost an iPod touch on the S1 Northbound yesterday around 5:00 pm a reader has it – if you think it’s yours and can identify some details the reader will gladly get it back to you. Email me at princeofpetworth(at)gmail

“Dear PoP,

My bike was stolen tonight, between 6:30 and 7pm, outside the KIPP school in the area that is maybe Shaw/Truxton Circle. I’ve filed a police report, but I know the police have other things to worry about; I was wondering if there is any way you’d be able to ask your readers to keep an eye out?

It’s a Univega bike from the mid-90s; the make is called Activa Country. It’s a sort of dark silver-gray; it may even have been black at one point.

I’m carless and poor (and I live a longish trek from the Metro!), so the loss of my bike is a huge, huge blow to me. I’d really appreciate it if you could share this info with your readers, just in case.”

Unfortunately we don’t have too much luck finding stolen bikes but if anyone happens to spot it – I’ll pass on the info.

Hope many of you can make the PoP 5 year anniversary party this Thurs. Nov. 10 at Meridian Pint (11th and Park Rd, NW). There will be 4 different casks of DC Brau Public. Amarillo, Cascade/Mango, Rakau/Mango, Sorachi Ace!
