Washington, DC


“Dear PoPville,

As I was waking past the dog park on 25th and M around 7:15 last night, I came across the unfortunate sight of the DC medical examiner’s van backed up to a port-a-potty (incidentally it was a Don’s John). As I passed, I caught a glimpse of a gurney being wheeled toward the open door of a port-a-potty. There were also 8 or so uniformed and plainclothes cops, as well as techs. I obviously don’t know details, but I feel for the poor person who passed away (or was dumped) in a port-a-potty. I know it’s speculation at this point, but if what I suspect is true and a homeless person passed away in a port-a-potty, I hope this motivates elected officials — and all of us — to do more for our homeless.”
