Well that was painful.
I'm sitting in my new office overlooking a beautiful tree-lined street. There's a little bird's nest in the window and I can hear the birds cheeping away whenever the momma bird comes back to the nest.
E and Nemo are both doing well adjusting. We're going out this weekend to buy a kiddie pool so E can take advantage of the yard right away.
An unforeseen advantage to this place is we get to see the joggers heading to the nearby park. Score!
Meanwhile, we're still trying to sell the old house and we've been greeted by this story:
D.C. crime emergency prompts more patrols
WASHINGTON - Police beefed up patrols around national landmarks Wednesday, a day after the District of Columbia's police chief declared a crime emergency in response to a string of violence that included the killing of a British activist.
At least 14 people have been killed in Washington already this month, and in the last 30 days robberies have risen 14 percent and armed assaults have jumped 18 percent. Last year, homicides in the city fell to a 20-year low of 195.
In reality the crime wave is notable because the British activist was killed in Georgetown, the posh neighborhood of DC. If it has occurred across the river in Anacostia there'd be no mention of it. The uptick in robberies is probably caused by the same individual(s).
What a kerfuffle.
