Neighborhood non-emergency of the month

What will happen next month? Stay tuned! In the meantime, it seems as though you may want to stay away from me this week.

Abnormally fast vibrato

About 7:45 last night, running about 5 minutes late for orchestra rehearsal, I was behind this guy on 395.

I mean that literally: I flashed my headlights at him because he was driving without his lights on. Then two police cars sped past, soon to be joined by about two dozen more. I could see the first couple officers get out, guns drawn, and take cover behind their cars, which were probably 100 feet in front of me with a couple of civilians' cars between us. The suspect's car was also in my line of sight, which was a bit disconcerting, seeing as how I was not taking cover behind my car.

Eventually the police at the back of the, um, convention? directed those of us who were stuck to get off on the GW Parkway going south, so I turned around at the airport and eventually got to rehearsal ... only about 25 minutes late, and without getting shot. It was a good day.

The annual Ricky Williams update

Clearly we've been ignoring Ricky Williams, the original PH4H poster-boy, for too long. To get our attention, he's gone ahead and negotiated his own contract extension.
