Thanks to Jess for sending the “Vigilante sidewalk repair” update:

“Update to the Update: He’s back at it this morning! It appears that a city official ordered him to leave, so Kurt (his name is Kurt) is sweeping up the mess & packing up his stuff.”

WJLA reported last night:

“Madsen says, “Why am I here? Because this is unsafe.”

Madsen lives in a nearby shelter. He was so frustrated walking past missing bricks that he started replacing them. Then he noticed a large hole in the sidewalk next to a Metro bus stop at 6th and H Streets.”

Godspeed Mr. Madsen.
