Please, people

Life is dangerous enough without being reckless. Floret Kusi-Davies is dead and her child in critical condition after she attempted to cross the street without being within a crosswalk. WaPo reports she was also wearing dark clothing and rain had begin to fall.

If it’s important you get somewhere quick, being dead will make it even worse. Wait for the light.

I feel a physical pain thinking about how that baby is going to be motherless if it survives, and the poor person who did nothing wrong is going to have to live with the memory of striking and killing another human being. What could possibly be worth the chance of that kind of thing happening to you?

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.
