OhBootsy sends us the letter above over the weekend:
“MAJOR CHANGES COMING TO 21ST ST NW?
Found this on my porch; losing 120 parking spaces on 21st St NW. Is this for real?”
DC Cycle Track’s website says:
“The purpose of this project is to identify a specific route for north- and south-running protected bicycle lanes between Dupont Circle, the western side of Downtown, and the National Mall that provides a safe environment for people biking of all ages and abilities on either 20 , 21 , or 22 Street NW.

Both mends and breaks your heart. Spotted in Glover Park.
A reminder as winter approaches:
“To request shelter transport for DC residents who are homeless and on the street now, contact the Shelter Hotline at [email protected], (202) 399-7093, 211, or 1-800-535-7252 (toll-free from a pay phone).”
Thanks to a reader for sending:

Thanks to Sarah for sending from Sign at 42nd and Davis.

Does anyone else find it odd this person typed this up? Is it possible others have received these and this is just a scare tactic?”
“Guess you are Scott Pruitt Above the Law Or You couldn’t see Fire Hydrants! Really???”
A reader reports:
“Seen Saturday on Johnson Ave. This particular car has parked in this spot frequently, and seems to have finally pissed off one our neighbors.”

Yikes. Thanks to J for sending:
“Spotted in Eckington. The punctuation, the penmanship, the misspelled, it’s all just golden.”
Thanks to Adam for sending: “This is a gem from the New Hill East Facebook group!”
God bless my neighbor for sending this from the North Cleveland Park Nextdoor message board.
The accompanying text said:
“Did any of you leave a potato in the garden of my apartment building? Why would someone do this?”
Yes, why? WHY would someone do this indeed. And with this a new bar has been set. So keep your flower thief messages on hold but keep your eyes peeled for more potatoes please.
