Well it's satirical. You can't agree or disagree with it.

Ah yes I remember this from a while ago. Some of them are very clever. My favorites are Subarubia and Notyetworth.

The most clever one was "Bolling Air Force Base."

Cute. It may have come out a while ago but I've never seen it. I like it.

I don't get the Sacramento reference. Sacramento is the capital of California. What does that have to do with DC?

Turrets Syndrome? For Columbia Heights? Makes sense that is an odd neighobrhood. Million dollar houses next to housing projects? I never got it even though I know plenty of "gentrifiers" in that neighobrhood who swear by it.

I also like the Mild Mild West haha.

I think it was a reference to the Turret rooves on top of Victorian rowhouses.

Sacramento is a play off "sacred," referring to Catholic U.

Thanks y'all. The turrets totally makes sense now.

Sacred refferring to Catholic University? I get it now. That's a pretty school. I thought Brookland was all hood but its not a bad neighborhood. Went to see someone over there and it was quiet.
