I am so glad the 2nd Air-Space Museum was not built in DC,, at least I have one museum I don't have to "fight my when in, then fight my way back out.
I have fond memories of visiting DC in the 70's with my family.

Lol "historic"??? You obviously have not been in a city this summer where way more and worse riots occurred and on a sustained basis, complete with Democrat leaders supporting and encouraging insurrection.

For the new guys or trolls, have you driven in DC or took a stroll outside of the National Mall, Georgetown, or the West side area in general?

Do it and report it back to me what you see.

If you claimed that you live in DC, tell me about Southeast and East near Capitol Heights in general.

Take a walk around and bring a friend. LOL. That won't even save you.

I live in NW and will not venture into SE unless absolutely necessary and only during daylight. Back about 5 years ago when my daughter was in middle and high school athletics we would go to the schools in SE for some events. Homes with bars on first floor windows goes from roughly zero to 100% by the time you cross the Anacostia.

Tucker Carlson touched on this last night.

It is unacceptable isn't it? How is it that we can't go to the other half of our city like we are in some bad city in war torn Syria. It is the failure of our collective governing body and the local people who live in it.

They aren't that dumb. They've been successfully suppressing the proponents of BLM and antifa types for decades( the minority of the country). They've started to wake the lion that is the majority and this is the reaction(overreaction?) you get.
