“Dear PoPville,

WIth summer travel season coming up, I was wondering if you could ask the Popville community for reviews/recommendations about the best bus lines to take for a trip from DC to Philly, similar to a previous poll you had in 2011.”

Granted this a rather random one but I’ll walk you to how I got here. So I was thinking of titling chapter nine of my coming memoirs: ‘Emails I get from AOL accounts’ Ed. Note that is still the tentative title. And it got me thinking about email in general and communication preferences. So there we are.

Thanks to Luis for sending from Columbia Heights.

I think it’s a toss up. You?


Brutal. From a Gallup news report:

Americans are much more likely to oppose (64%) than to favor (29%) making Washington, D.C., a separate state. These results are consistent with past polling on the topic by other firms, which also found majorities opposed to the idea.

Although D.C. residents want their city to become the 51st state, their fellow Americans disagree. In fact, Americans have consistently opposed D.C. statehood in polling over the past three decades. The issue has become politicized, given that adding D.C. as a state would practically guarantee increased Democratic representation in Congress. As such, a D.C. statehood proposal is unlikely to pass unless there were a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, a filibuster-proof Democratic majority in the Senate and a Democratic president.”
