Do you happen to know what that incessant loud banging in the dupont area is? If it werent happening over and over for days, i would think it was a car crash. Found this (photo above) and it might be the culprit at the corner of 20th and Florida, next to Glen’s market, skanska construction.
I should clarify that I’m not complaining per se, but would prefer they knock it off after 7pm.”

“every tow truck in the city just rolled through Chinatown. Horns blaring and blocking traffic What is going on?”
“It’s like a steady parade of them driving east on h st honking nonstop”
UPDATE: Charlotte sends video:
“Any clue what these tow truck protests down by gallery place were all about? I missed it on the video but before this there was one pulling a coffin – and a banner saying something about pulling over for first responders??”

“They have 16th street blocked off in front of the hotel and a huge police presence. I couldn’t get a picture from the bus….”

“cops outside St. Regis didn’t know who was causing the shutdown, but spotted a Turkish flag in the window of a black car out front”
“It’s the prime minister of Turkey.”
Can anyone confirm it’s the PM (last visit didn’t go so well).

“a walking mj plant spotted at 19th St NW & Florida… saying, every so often, “weed never hurt anybody!”
Well, we don’t get platinum props for nothing.
My girlfriend and I came home together and walked inside. We live in a major city on a nice neighborhood with a small yard like many city row houses. I saw that the water pitcher I filled this morning was empty, which I found strange, so I filled it and came back out to water the plants. When I walked outside, a man was standing at our gate, a few feet from me. I ignored him and watered the plants, and when I turned around, he was still there. He looked like a normal guy, our age, white upper middle class type. I said hi and he asked if I lived here. I said yes. He asked my name. I told him. He stood silent. I asked if he lived here. He said “somewhere around here.” I watered the other plants. He asked how long I lived here. I said a few years. He said how long exactly. I found it unsettling and told him I didn’t keep count. He asked where I was from originally, I said WV. He stood silent. I made a Deliverance joke he didn’t get. He asked where my girlfriend was from. She was inside. That meant he had watched us come inside and had been there since before we were home. I said it was nice to meet him and offered my hand to shake his. He said his name was James. I went back inside.
