Snowball fights planned; no guns allowed

By Washington Post editors

Reports are coming in from throughout the region of a slew of snowball fights planned during the snowpocalypse. But everyone is emphasizing the gun-free nature of the fights after an incident in December in which a D.C. police officer pulled a gun on a group having a snowball fight at 14th and U streets NW.

For those who want to join in the great snowball fights of 2010, there's one advertised on Facebook for Saturday afternoon on the Ellipse; another on the Mall; and one in Fort Dupont Park. NBC4 also has a roundup of events.

I really hope they have taken that "officer"'s gun away from him for the duration.

Incidentally, I am away, in Fargo of all places. Sure, about three inches of snow, but they handle it well here, it is nothing.

Enjoy the blizzard!

Just remember, a snowball started the Boston Massacre... look how that turned out.

Looks like Darwinism doesn't take snow days.

Better get a U.S. Park Service permit for that Ellipse battle.

And don't hit the guys with the ear buds.

I'd like to see Congress in a snowball fight. Could sell tickets to that show.
