Oof. Horace & Dickie’s is of course legendary.

“Horace & Dickie’s Seafood Carryout is home to the famous Jumbo Fish Sandwich. One bite and you’ll be hooked!”

Sadly, WJLA broke the news last night:

“The owner, 82-year-old Richard “Dickie” Shannon, says he’ll be playing more golf.

He blames gentrification, which he calls “cultural genocide,” for forcing him out.” Read More

From a resident on the MPD listserv:

“May we have more detail about the below incident/alert and why it was not included in the crime report?

(Thu, Jan 23) Alert: STABBING IN THE 700 BLOCK 5TH ST NE. Lookout for 3 B/M JUVENILES WEARING ALL BLACK CLOTHING”

An MPD Captain replied:

Three suspects assaulted an individual and forced them inside their residence. While inside, the complainant attempt to defend themselves, and was stabbed by one of the suspects. All three suspects fled the scene. The classification was ultimately made as a Burglary I, which may have been why it wasn’t recognized on the crime report. Thank you.”
