Wayan’s poop efforts get recognized

John Kelly’s Washington has a piece today largely about dog poop and the man who doesn’t love it at all: We Love DC alumnus Wayan Vota.

I’ll confess I rolled my eyes a bit when Wayan was on his tear about the Petworth poop surplus last year but clearly I didn’t recognize the universal appeal of the subject. I certainly didn’t recognize the transformative power his efforts would have: he and Kelly say Grant Circle is a much less pooptacular place now and credit the change to an improved appearance – the broken window theory in practice – and signs posted by the local ANC asking people to pick up after their pets.

Nicely done, Wayan!

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.

  1. Thanks Don. And yes, Grant Circle is cleaner now – I even recently declared it poop free! Of course that requires constant vigilance, but yes, you can effect change through personal poop patrol action.
