From the D.C. Department of Health:

“A rabid raccoon has been captured in the vicinity of 32nd St. and Nebraska Ave. NW. If you came in contact with this animal call (202) 442-9143 or email [email protected] Read about rabies here.”

The Washington Post reported:

“Three people in upper Northwest Washington have been attacked by a rabid raccoon, D.C.health officials said.

In a statement issued Monday night, the city’s Department of Health said the raccoon was captured “after attacking three people in the Chevy Chase neighborhood.”

Be safe Chevy Chase! Or is it Wakefield or Forest Hills? Be safe Washington D.C.!!

And I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the legendary garbage truck raccoon.

From an email:

I’m Eddie Cano – a cozy, family-friendly neighborhood Italian restaurant – will open in the heart of Chevy Chase (at 5014 Connecticut Avenue NW) this week.

About: I’m Eddie Cano (say it three times fast, and one will ultimately stumble upon the phonetic pronunciation of “Americano” in Italian) is the first independent venture from industry veterans Massimo Papetti (Assaggi Osteria, Cafe Milano) and former ThinkFoodGroup executive chef James Gee (Jaleo, China Chilcano).

From MPD:

“We wanted to inform the citizens of the Second District that an arrest has been made from that unfortunate incident on August 27, 2018 at LaFayette Elementary school located at 5701 Broad Branch Rd NW, in which one of our hard working crossing guards was racially harassed and threatened by a suspect who is now behind bars at the Metropolitan Police Department.

We thank the citizens of the District of Columbia for their outstanding help and patience with putting this criminal behind bars. Have a safe and wonderful evening!”

Unfortunately there was another unsettling aspect of this incident reported by the Washington Post:

“An operator at the District’s 911 center failed to send police Monday afternoon when a parent at an elementary school in Northwest Washington called to report a man outside the building threatening to shoot, according to a city spokeswoman.”

OK then, looks like we got another neighborhood name battle on our hands. I LIVE FOR THIS. Thanks to Amy for getting the ball rolling by objecting to Chevy Chase (D.C.) as the neighborhood for that new Italian restaurant coming across the street from the original Politics and Prose. So let’s settle this once and for all. hahaha just kidding, but let’s do our best to get a consensus. Now I don’t consider google the arbiter of neighborhood boundaries but I will note that they consider this Chevy Chase. I asked earlier today on twitter and folks seem pretty split between Van Ness and Forest Hills. Originally I was firmly in the Chevy Chase camp but now I’m honestly undecided. What say you?
