I thought guns were virtually outlawed in DC.

ABC News reporting (6:30am) that one “person of interest” is in custody, and two are still being sought. “Massive manhunt” underway. Should be fun trying to get to work in that place.

waiting for Obama to mention something on this or maybe the black on black shootings which occur every night.
Saying that after reading a couple of threads on Ferguson MO then I see a couple of freepers guess that the cops deserve what they get

After commuting from Princeton NJ area to Midtown Manhattan, for 17yrs (I left 26yrs ago), I can’t imagine the traffic nightmare in DC/VA everyday.

I’ve commuted into NYC and into DC, both times driving cars with stick shifts. They are both awful commutes. Telecommuting is the way to go!

“Telecommuting is the way to go!”

I have to handle work functions when our office is closed (not on weekends); the problem with telecommuting is that if you can do it from home it can be done from India...

It sure is. All we had back when I worked there was this stuff:

and then this one...

9600 baud dial-ups on Compuserve BBS and IBM PS2/50. Pretty lame.

Don't try because it is a true nightmare.

My wife commutes 94 miles one way to get to work (a DoD agency that moved further away from us a few years ago) and I finally get to commute a couple of miles after 22 years of 100 to 150 mile round trips every day.

No mention of why an off-duty cop is cruising SE DC at 3 in the morning.

A couple of DC cops have been arrested on child prostitution and drug charges recently.

I don't think so. First almost no one knows what real work looks like - try getting a plumber or carpenter around here who actually plumbs, saws true or joins lumber [hell, the lumberyard shut down and the space was sold to some kind of association or other].

Second no one actually appreciates real work. It is unsafe, it is bad for the environment, and it makes everyone else - none of whom are capable of real work - feel bad. No, we have banished work in its entirety except for menial chores performed by illegals.

Like everything, it all depends. My job can't be done from India unless I'm there on vacation.

That also depends ... if you compensate your employees for mouse movements (or award bonuses for hiding veterans on secret waiting lists) instead of compensating for actual work completed, you will have a problem.
