And why would I want to live in DC?????

Even if I were white and rich I would not WANT to live there...maybe across the bridge in Rosslyn, but not DC...A sad thing to say since I graduated from a DC high school...

I Blame these dumb irresponsible parents who needs to be held accountable for having a kid an not knowing how to raise them. Sad to say I moved from DC about a year ago after living in DC for over 20 years... I even thought about moving back but because of all these dumb, immature, hopeless, drug addicted young men who have no respect for life I probably will not move back. I knew DC was in trouble when I went visited a DC high school and I seen the new crop of young men who all looked like Lil Wayne ugh:( and they cared more about a rep and acting ignorant then getting an education.

Not really. There was also one other fatal shooting and at least 6 more injured by gunfire last night.

About average for a weekend. A little on the busy side for a single night.
