About a shooting in DC. East Bank DC. Excerpt: Last night, Virgil Wood – a neighbor from the block I lived on in Anacostia – was shot and killed on his front stoop, directly across the street from my old house. I’ll admit, I usually gloss over headlines like this. This kind of thing happens so often around DC, and I’ve become pretty numb to it. In this case, because it’s about someone who I’ve known since I moved back to DC, who’s been to my house, and whose number is in my phone – the headline is just really crushingly personal. Reality check.

Teabelly cuts his finger in a serious way while preparing dinner. It hurts. He is driven to an emergency room. There is a crush of people at the Washington Hospital Center. “It felt like a den of agony and despair,” he writes. They then go to Sibley ER, where the experience is very different. The question: “Any ideas on how these stark differences are allowed to exist in a moral society?”

Unsolicited advice for people who might want advice on bike commuting. Tales From The Sharrows. For instance: The speed at which you commute has approximately zero bearing on anything. Faster does not mean “better at bike commuting” and slower does not mean “worse at bike commuting.” Bike commuting isn’t college football.
