    I’m always amazed how people in DC will complain about an outdoor cafe and get all outraged about it. But gunshots? Not so much. That said, this corner and block are constantly full of “activity.” Wish those people in the new condos who complained out Eatonville having outdoor seating would get half as pissed about this stuff.

    Any more details on the gun assault on Thanksgiving on R Street anyone?

    • @d: No, the only information was that it occurred inside a residence on that block.
