Make a Difference and Help StreetSense

Most if not all of you have seen the vendors for StreetSense--"Washington DC's only paper by and for the homeless"--selling their papers on street corners in our neighborhood. StreetSense is one of those institutions in our community who truly do strive to make a difference for the less fortunate out there--and they need your help in order to further their mission.

Tomorrow evening from 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM, StreetSense will be hosting a charity silent auction at the WVSA Arts Connection at 1100 16th Street. Auction items have been donated by numerous business, restaurants and individuals throughout the region and include some really cool stuff (including Caps tickets and a Bethany Beach getaway).

For more information, visit StreetSense's website, or send an email to

One of the items on the agenda is the "parking problem at 14th & R". Does anyone know what this is about? I don't find the parking at that intersection any worse than anywhere else. Thanks!

You know... I would buy StreetSense if it actually had some neighborhood news. But when I have bought it, the stories are all about how tough it is to be homeless. No doubt about it, but it can't be that hard to dig up some interesting stories - even if they are retrospectives or other interesting writting.

I pickup all the local newspapers and would pay for some interesting micro-local stories about DC. But reading about the struggles of homelessness - no way!
