It appears that they Guardian Angels have or are doing some work in Adams Morgan. I saw this post on Monday on Yahoo! Groups Dupont Forum list. There have been several (highly publicized) incidents of violent crime in the Adams Morgan area recently, many or most of them not 18th Street during the crowded weekend nights. Here it the posting from the Guardian Angels:
