    The weather is supposed to be crap-tastic on Sunday (sleet, snow, freezing rain). Any word on a “rain” date for these events?

      I thought you folks were invincible and/or invencible! A little sleet never stopped no Mt. Pleasanter!

    Aww, “invencible.” Is Mount Pleasant pretending it hasn’t already driven out all the Spanish-speakers?

    • Anonymous

      They must’ve driven you out, because you’ll still hear more Spanish than English when walking down Mt. Pleasant Street these days.

        That’s the help.

          You might have overheard my neighbors – family members work in a bank, school, hotel. Or my other Spanish speaking neighbors that work for a non-profit and for a government agency.

      Awww, when’s the last time you’ve been there, or do you base your snark solely on misinformation?

      Look at all this driving out going on!: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/groundbreaking-ceremony-of-the-monsenor-romero-apartments-in-the-mount-pleasant-community-of-washington-dc-213872421.html

      If you look at the 2000 vs 2010 census (most recent comprehensive stats we have) you will see that the white non-hispanic population of MtP increased, the black non-hispanic population decreased, and the hispanic population decreased very slightly, that is, remained more or less constant. Most, not all hispanic MtP residents are concentrated in the rent-controlled apt buildings between 16th and Mt Pleasant streets and they don’t seem to be going anywhere fast!
