Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

My boyfriend and I were leaving the big apt complex on Quebec and Connecticut tonight [Wed.] around 10:15. We walked out the side and turned left onto Quebec. A couple was standing there looking distressed. They said they had just been mugged by 2 men. One man held a knife up to the woman’s throat and the other had a gun. They took the woman’s bag and the man’s wallet. They called the police as they were telling us what happened. They said the guys had been standing on the sidewalk in a shadowy spot. Just want to give a heads up to the neighborhood.”

  1. I’m surprised to hear that this happened last night. There was a higher-than-normal police/security presence outside the synagogue on Quebec St. yesterday, including a police car parked on the traffic island at the corner of Quebec and Porter.

  2. It took me awhile to figure out why that was last night. Duh. (Catholic here).

    But yeah, this is scary. Be aware, folks.

  3. Batman’s Mittens?
    Bread Maven?
    Bowel Movement?
    Bavarian Motor?
    Bachanialian Mogwai?
    Barbate Macaque?

    I am confused.

  4. It’s not fair to judge all males by the actions of a few. While most crime IS committed by men, there are plenty of nice, law-abiding, respectful men in the world.

  5. I was on the overground in london a few weeks ago and overheard a guy from south london on the phone. at one point he said to the person on the other end of the conversation, “naaah that’s B.M., couz!”. It took me a minute to realize that, because there were children sitting nearby, he replaced “bullsh**” with “B.M.” (bowel movement). At that moment I realized my mission was to introduce that expression to DC.
