Teh DCist: Tony Williams Turns VigilanteDid you see it? To the untrained hater, that might not look like much. An amusing anecdote, sure. But calling Tony Williams "Mr. Bow Tie" was something first invented (as far as I can tell) by the brilliant creator of this blog, James F. Just look in the archives, here, here, here, here, here.... here... here. Oh and here. In fact, for about three years James F called him that.
Anthony Williams personally stopped a thief on K Street yesterday afternoon. He was apparently walking by when he saw a guy nab a package from a UPS deliverman's hand truck. Our newly dubbed "Mr. Bow Tie" crime fighting superhero immediately started running after the culprit, catching up with him and getting the stolen package back.
"newly dubbed."Actually, its entirely plausible that this is purely coincidental. The writers at DCist could indeed be as creative as James F or anyone else with a blog. But I'm still going to exploit this...
Even if you don't like Liz, or Rusty, or me for that matter, James F is undeniably the gold standard of DC hate. He was awesome. He is legend. I encourage everyone to read as many of his posts as possible and not just to spite the DCist. You'll be glad you did.
I just wonder what James F would think about this. I'm not talking about stealing his shit. I mean, what would he say about Bow Tie running down a theif:
"I said to myself, 'Do I just stand here? No, this can't happen,' " Williams told us. "And I just started running."My pussy gets wet just thinking about it.
