Enjoying being able to sleep in after not getting much sleep the night before, I wasn’t exactly happy to wake up to this from DCist: a little after 4 pm yesterday a man was stabbed on 12th and U – you know that’s practically outside my front door. I was at a movie at the time downtown.

The victim is in stable condition and police are investigating. I don’t know, when I moved to this neighborhood nearly 2 years ago, I wasn’t facing this kind of violence outside of my front door. I know it’s the city, and I’m not living in Friendship Heights, but this really has been a little too much for me to handle.
