Having laws is part of a civilized society. Laws that we don’t like we should try and change. Here is a case where the law was broken and the vandals should be punished accordingly. They are not heroes, if the DC residents think they should be voted in for Mayor (see article comments), then it’s free-rein for anyone to break the law and do as they please.

But, I digress, DC is not really known for it's honesty anyhow.

"Looking at violent crime specifically, Washington, DC has a violent crime rate that is 6% lower than the District of Columbia average and 193% higher than the national average. For property crime, Washington, DC is 3% lower than the District of Columbia average and 90% higher than the national average."

Yep, good place to live!

Huh? Anyone want to try parsing that statement? DC has a crime rate 6% lower than the DC average.

I don't

believe the crime statistics for DC & not surprised by significant growing crimes & I've lived nearby in MD since 1972.
Washington is a highly political location & the "elected" officials play games no matter what their political bent.

Statistics don't lie! :)

Yeah, I re-read that several times myself, lol.
For the 66 years I've lived just outside of it, Washington, D.C. has been the same as the "District of Columbia", lol. Hence the meaning of "D.C."

Perhaps he meant the District of Columbia area (metro DMV?)?

It's about the Line- If a line can be drawn between the powers granted and the rights retained, it would seem to be the same thing, whether the latter be secured by declaring that they shall not be abridged, or that the former shall not be extended.

Reminds of another funny story

NPR reported a guy trying to check out at a self checkout counter in a home improvement store. He wanted to buy a crow bar. The machine would only speak Spanish and he couldn't get it to speak English so he could check out. He got mad, destroyed the checkout machine with the crow bar he wanted to buy, and then left with the crow bar.

in Toronto for two weeks. I notice, that nobody washes their cars, not even nice ones.

Also, when keeping an intersection clear, I noticed, that with a 100% ratio, every single person turning across one's path gives a thank you wave. Are they nice people? No (believe me I've seen people negotiating, business is business). But to your point? They absolutely are very civilized.

No Washing with Salt

I know some Canadiens... they don't wash the cars in the winter because all the salt they use on the roads. They wait until the salt use stops... then they wash the cars. Getting the cars wet with washing with the salt only helps the salt accelerate corrosion.
