“Dear PoPville,

Sunday afternoon, as I was walking through Adams Morgan, I heard yelling. I saw a cab driver, in his cab, and a man and woman standing outside of the taxi. The driver and the man on the sidewalk were yelling at one another. I heard the guy on the sidewalk yell, “Yeah, well you’re the terrorist!” I then said, “Wait, did you just call him a terrorist? You can’t do that. You can’t talk to someone like that!” His companion put her hand over his mouth, and with some effort, shoved him into their building, as he was still trying to yell. The driver then approached me, visibly shaken, and said that he is Ethiopian, and as he was driving this couple, he was listening to an Ethiopian radio station.

The male passenger said, “I don’t want to listen to Al Jazeera.” (more…)

A reader reports seeing this on a Bus stop in SW this morning. Whether or not this is an official flyer, let us remember the words of Mayor Bowser:

We celebrate our diversity and respect all DC residents no matter their immigration status. We are a sanctuary city because we know that our neighborhoods are safer and stronger when no one is afraid to call on our government for help, and when our police can focus on protecting and serving.”

Update from Mayor Bowser:

Sadly the damage is probably done but this is at least a step in the right direction. Though local Fox5’s remains live with an Editor’s note. Ed. Note: They should completely retract their story too. Thanks to a commenter for noting this statement from Fox News:

“On May 16, a story was posted on the Fox News website on the investigation into the 2016 murder of DNC Staffer Seth Rich. The article was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting. Upon appropriate review, the article was found not to meet those standards and has since been removed.

We will continue to investigate this story and will provide updates as warranted.”

From Oxfam:

“Oxfam’s Famine Food Truck is taking to the streets of Washington to raise awareness of the dire situation and to inspire action. Congress took an important step this month approving $990 million in emergency funding for famine relief, which will provide immediate relief for the next few months. Unfortunately though, famines don’t end with our fiscal years, and President Trump has proposed a budget for next year that would drastically cut both humanitarian and development assistance.

Chaffetz Letter to Utah’s 3rd Congressional District:

“Dear 3rd District Constituents:

Serving you in the U.S. House of Representatives for nearly nine years has been a rare honor and privilege. When I first ran for Congress in 2008 I promised I would get in, serve, and get out. I told voters I did not believe Congress should be a lifetime career. I knew from day one that my service there would not last forever.

As you know, after careful consideration and long discussion with my wife, Julie, we agree the time has come for us to move on from this part of our life. This week I sent a letter to Governor Herbert indicating my intention to resign from Congress effective June 30, 2017. (more…)
