The playground at Ft Bayard has been closed for renovation with no progress since December. I’m getting nowhere trying to find out who to contact for information.”
Ed. Note: Looks like this is run by the National Park Service, in which case Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s office might be the best bet? Anyone know what’s going on here?
Perhaps I fawned to soon over the Unicorn being the best decoration of all time. It’s still pretty damn sweet but this get up from Lou (above) in AU Park has narwhals. Narwhals!!

Thought you might be interested in this house going up – a teardown of a bungalow and a build of a crazy big house, totally out of proportion to what’s around it. I don’t know the zoning laws but this is taking up the whole lot. You don’t even see the two car garage to the right.
Here is what it’s going to look like – don’t know where the lawn surrounding the house is coming from because there will be no lawn or yard when this house is done.”
The Washington Post reported:
“Foul odors and visible sewage have seeped through Turtle Park, a popular playground and spray park in upper Northwest Washington, and children who played there recently have become ill, according to a D.C. Council member.”
Turtle Park reopened after a major renovation last year.
Never mind the kids killed. It’s refreshing to see the huge public turnout by today’s students vs the work of this furtive propagandist. Thanks to Myles for sending from AU Park. He notes that the car had progressive bumper stickers.
