Video: Skipping Smithsonian Station

Smithsonian Station is closed for security and crowd control reasons every Fourth of July, so Orange and Blue Line trains pass right through it without stopping. Fuzzy mobile video shot from a train skipping through the station last Friday, with background tourist chatter:

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
