You need to hit the abuse button and request the Admin Mod to change to the title to what you intend.

They may see my post to them, but hitting the abuse button will definitely get their attention. They’re very good about that.

Hey all. I don’t know about they WH but WTOP has just reported there was an electrical generator fire underground near 15th, F, and G streets - basically right near the WH - and that the Willard and W hotels are being, or were, essentially evacuated. Very quickly, too: evidently there are people in their bathroves out on the street. Yes I just noticed the typo and I am keeping it in.

FoxNews has an item about an underground electrical fire. The news item is under “U.S. news” half-way down the front page site.

Yes, one of the Grizzly Mommas Evatuating!

Big time stuff if so.

On the other hand, just went through all the local DC sources and NOTHING YET, but it's Saturday Night, and coming to you live from New York, more dopers! So who knows what's going on over there at the Obama place.

Oh, flames from underground electrical fires drive people out of hotels near WH, et al. No injuries.

This happens all the time around here. Plus EXPLODING MANHOLE COVERS ~ could happen@!

Hey, there may be a plot here yet,, they had another electrical fire Thursday... could be a bad batch of transformers or cable kind of thingy firing up coincidentally or the circuits are overloading from all the porn being downloaded in the area.

"Someone in the White House probably saw a strip of bacon."

It's that or one of their muzzie friends from the dinner last night left a suspicious package.

I’m going with option C. I think they’re going to have to reinforce those electrical wires to handle the porn downloads at the White House. Definitely C. Good call, NR.
