Thursday night, 13th and U NW: Parking Enforcememt. (Jacob Freedman)

Thanks go to Borderstan reader Jacob Freedman for sending the accompanying photo. Indeed, as Freedman asks, “Did we run out of n’s?” But, seriously, folks, remind your out-of-the-hood visitors about the need to feed the parking meters on the U Street corridor in the evenings–you never know when parking enforcememt may show up. And, please, send us photos of interesting or unusual things you spot in the area.
