1. The Dupont South Metro escalators were broken again today. I'm glad to see so much forward progress being made at such a busy station. I can't believe it's that much to ask to have just one working escalator going in the right direction. (The "right direction" is whichever way I happen to be going.) If this continues, an injury is inevitable. Maybe a heart attack. Maybe a dizzy spell that results in a fall and a domino effect taking out dozens of commuters. Who knows? But it will suck. And WMATA will be held accountable.
2. So, yeah. More bad things happening in Georgetown. Can Chief Ramsey declare a crime super-emergency? If I need to buy my baby a diamond ring, I'll buy it beyond the District limits thank you very much.
