How did we miss this?

I was looking for a link so I could talk briefly about the upcoming BODIES exhibit in the old Newseum space and came across this story from January.

D.C. police believe a naked construction worker who fell to his death this week slipped and fell four stories down an elevator shaft.

Joseph Oliver, 23, of La Plata was discovered about 6 a.m. Wednesday in the basement elevator shaft area of the Newseum, which is being built at 555 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, officials said.

Authorities said it was unclear why he was naked, according to C.V. Morris, head of the department’s Violent Crimes Branch.

No sign of any follow-ups in the Post on this one. Damned weird – of all the times I’ve been naked at my job it’s NEVER been near an elevator shaft.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
