I spent all my time in SE. dupont was run down. I spent time at the clubs, and places on south capital street. I lived in capitol hill.

I was going to the bayou in georgetown when you were watching the flintstones. I also remember the old 930, and capital ballroom. I remember the 5th column and traxx days.

Like I said, you were basically an out of towner that dropped in to get your "sketchy" on at those whack clubs(I'm sure you enjoyed traxx). I spent my time at go-go's in the other part of D.C. Anybody that would mention those places as a means to get there D.C. cred up is lacking.

nope, not an out of towner. you mentioned you were from stafford. I am not trying to get any cred, just name dropping some old places that no longer exist to my knowledge. I didn't go to too many clubs by choice. I spent more time at venues seeiong concerts. always viewed people who danced as a little fruitty, especially to gogo music. nice gay joke about traxx though. I am sure your liberal friends would like you to know that you made a negative comment about the gay community by putting down traxx. from now on, you will be known as the homophobic one from stafford.

What do you think could there be a link? economic or political?
Property crimes/robbery is rising.

Main predictor of overall crime rate is age of population, and we are getting older as a society.

Cities like D.C. are experiencing the lowest murder totals in two decades. I think the crack epedemic of the Reagan/Bush years has finally run it's course on a mass scale.

Maybe major crimes are down due to having about two million guys ln prisons and jails. Hard to do street crimes when you are locked up.
