I saw a post years ago about repointing old brick walls with mortar joints that have deteriorated over time. Ed. Note: We’re still working on migrating all the old comments over, will be a few more weeks I’m afraid but they’re coming! What about the bricks themselves? I live in a 1921 row house, and the brick used on the front facade is a much higher quality, wire-cut brick that what’s in the back: sandy, crumbling brick that isn’t wire cut and “sharp.” The result is that over the years, my rear brick wall has taken a beating and has a mixture of cracks, chunks out of corners, ugly mortar joints, etc… It’s not due to any water intrusion or structural issues, just a general aesthetic concern that I’d like addressed. My question is: has anyone had this problem, and what repairs/recommendations have been made?“

One reader reports:
“This hate-filled flier (above) was left on my windshield Sunday night at about 11pm, 100 block of T St NW, Bloomingdale. 7 other cars on the block were pasted as well.”
Another reader reports:
“White supremacist fliers being posted in my neighborhood (Bloomingdale). Tore these ones down. These were on the corner of 1/W NW”
I was hoping it was just that one guy from SW but it appears it may be a bigger issue:

There are a lot of rumors swirling around the 16th St Heights neighborhood that the people behind Boundary Stone are taking over the Swampoodle space. Their sponsoring the Kennedy Street Festival only strengthened those rumors. Have you heard anything about this? Something you can get to the bottom of?”
BREAKING: One of the owners of Boundary Stone is indeed in negotiations to take over the Swampoodle space at 14th and Colorado Ave, NW. Now keep in mind the negotiations are still ongoing but if I was a betting man I’d say there is a very, very good chance this will happen. STAY TUNED for many many more details if/when it does.
