Dear PoPville – Anyone Else See the Drive By shooting on Rhode Island Ave, NE Last Night?

View Larger Map

Dear PoPville,

I was driving home from work on Rhode Island Ave, near 2nd St NE, around 9:00pm and stopped at a red light. When the light turned green I saw the guy in the car in the lane next to me lean out his window and fire four shots (+/-) into the car behind me. The shooter went by me and drove off. I called the cops and gave as much info as I could, but I wonder if there are any alerts or others that saw it. I have no idea what happened to the person behind me, but hopefully they weren’t killed. I noticed the shooter driving oddly, but definitely didn’t expect that. I wish I got a better look at him and his license plate, but maybe someone else did.

For many remote workers, a messy home is distracting.

You’re getting pulled into meetings, and your unread emails keep ticking up. But you can’t focus because pet hair tumbleweeds keep floating across the floor, your desk has a fine layer of dust and you keep your video off in meetings so no one sees the chaos behind you.

It’s no secret a dirty home is distracting and even adds stress to your life. And who has the energy to clean after work? That’s why it’s smart to enlist the help of professionals, like Well-Paid Maids.
