    ...it is a quiet, pleasant city.  The crime isn't bad.  Remember, some of us live here.  This is our home.

    •  Eh. Depends where you are (0+ / 0-)

      I used to live in Columbia and we'd come into the city often.  Like Chicago, the nice parts of DC are nice and quiet, but the bad parts are sporadically violent and responsible for most of the negative crime stats.

        ...aren't that bad.  Florida Ave and Brookland are not hipster heaven.  The last 6 years have been good for this city.  There is crime.  But this city is safer than where I grew up in Dallas.
