hahaha thanks to a reader for passing on from Craigslist:

“Take my old (never used) bidet (Columbia Heights)

Redid my bathroom which used to have a bidet in it. Plumbers pulled it out and it is currently sitting on my porch. It is in great condition and could be used for:

– Any and all 19th and early 20th century hygiene needs
– Modern installation art
– Venting your frustration at the world by smashing it to pieces, Office Space style
– Constructing an advanced birdbath

It’s yours if you can take it home. It’s solid porcelain so I’ll help you load it into your bidet-carrying machine.”

Sad update: “Someone responded to the CL post and picked it up on Friday!”

“Dear PoPville,

Odd question. What’s the etiquette when a neighbor repeatedly knocks on your back door to ask for money?

Longtime DC resident/renter, but my wife and I just bought a small row home on a mixed income, mixed age, mixed race, mixed family, block in Columbia Heights earlier this year. Within our first couple months in the new house some young neighbors that we had not previously met, but share an alley with, began coming through our back patio gate unannounced (the fence and gate are chest height and easily jumped over, so we don’t bother locking it), knocking on our back door, and asking for money (for diapers, auto repairs etc.).

My wife obliged and gave them a little money once or twice, but declined the third time. (more…)

On September 27th we posted Community Foodworks Alleges ANC Rep Used Racial Slur at the Columbia Heights Farmers Market. You can read the full allegations here. ANC1A06 Commissioner Richard DuBeshter has now resigned his seat.

Thanks to a reader for sending word.

Kent C. Boese | Chair, Advisory Neighborhood Commission 1A confirms to me via email:

“A short moment ago I received a copy of a letter that Commissioner DuBeshter sent to the Board of Elections stating that he was stepping down from ANC1A.”

stock photo from a previous search

I received numerous messages last night like this one:

“Helicopters have been circling Columbia Heights/Petworth/Park View since last night. My wife heard it was due to a search for a missing person who was found, but they’re still circling. Anyone know what’s going on?”

MPD first reported:

“Fourth District Officers were searching for a missing person with the assistance of the MPD helicopter. The missing person was located”


“Officers of the Third Police District are searching for a prisoner who escaped from police custody. The suspect is described as an African American male, 5’10”, 155 pounds, dark complexion, wearing a white t-shirt, black pants, and dark shoes. The suspect was last seen running eastbound in the 600 block of Lamont Street, NW. He is wanted on drug, theft, and traffic charges.

Anyone with information regarding this escaped prisoner is asked to contact the Metropolitan Police Department’s Command Information Center at 202-727-9099.”
