MSNBC in a tail spin

My neighbor just told me that she heard from our mutual friend whose dad was a Congressman (so maybe he knows?) that MSNBC has detailed staff to follow me and investigate me.

Poor things.  Can't take a widdle bwog.

Bedbugs, Rachel Maddow, and other public nuisances

Never go to bed with a socialist; hazardous to your health

I have a friend who works in a luxury hotel in DC metropolitan area (i.e., between Baltimore and Charlottesville).  Not the Ritz-Carlton, but possibly about the 2nd or 3rd fanciest in the metropolitan area, where visiting celebutants who want to pay $3,500 a day for a suite on a top floor with their own dedicated concierge desk/personal shopper/slave boy-girl may do so.

The hotel is owned by a multinational corporation originating in a more "social democratic" country than the United States (or at least, the United States before Obama and Bush).  This particular hotel chain advertises to its guest in an unexaminedly smug and self-satisfied way about its "green" policies (honey bee hives on its roofs, employee suggestion boxes on how to save energy, ad nauseum).  Including rooms furnished entirely out of recycled materials and linens washed in tepid water with non-phosphate detergents.

And they had bed bugs this summer!

A well-heeled guest is rumored to have been recently eaten alive in the night and had to be comped spa services to assuage her mutilated flesh.

The banning of DDT, not just from crazy use on whole fields of produce, but from limited applications in residences, has already led to the deaths (or should we say murders?) of thousands of African children, whose parents cannot obtain DDT treated bed netting to protect their families from malaria and mosquitoes.  [I highly recommend the humanitarian group Africa Fighting Malaria, which opposes the excesses of the environmental nanny statists.  
http://www.fightingmalaria.org/]

I recently went on a driving tours through the hamlets of Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, to see Rand Paul speak at Fancy Farm and visit friends for their birthdays.  And have been sporting welts on my forearms from the little beasts whom I met in some interstate motel that was nice enough to have HBO and wifi but had an unwanted amenity as well.

Not something I really needed during my week of being smeared by MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, and Eugene Robinson as a racist on the national news, just because I wrote a Visitor's Guide to DC advising on how to avoid crime (if not bedbugs).  No apology offered yet. There are pests in our public life and they must be removed.

NBC's dishonest coverage

NBC wanted to emphasize the Christian cast of Glenn Beck's 8/28 "Restoring Our Honor" rally so they instructed their camera crew to film the Jewish guy with the AK47 but to crop out his horns and hooves.

to maddow

Just found a new word in the OXFORD English dictionary: 


to maddow (v.), to pull a maddow: to smear, libel and vilify an innocent person or persons based on ethnic, racial, geographic or political identity, because of a failure of reading comprehension, incompetent research, and/or intellectual dishonesty

Glenn Beck,The Panel,The Economy

Chinese curse


I just realized I am now condemned to watch hours of MSNBC every day so I can blog about their inanities when they libel and smear people other than me. Argh!

The Left's Unlikely Tea Party Target

The Left's Unlikely Tea Party Target

Wow. A center-left journalist from a liberal publication who knows how to pick up a phone, check a fact, and meet someone and interview them. And who hence gets a scoop like that the racist right wing Tea Partier was actually a major Democratic Party donor who went to Al Gore's nominating convention, sat in Andrew Tobias's ("The Best Little Boy in the World") sky box, and went to Democratic cocktail fundraisers with Ellen Degeneres and Anne Heche back in the day.

The Democratic media-academic complex has tried to breed all critical thinking and intellectual honesty out of their progeny, but sports of nature like Kirsten Powers and Benjamin Sarlin keep re-evolving towards a human state.

Wonder if NBC or the New York Times will have the mental wattage to figure out that they should hire him to be a senior editor, before FOX or the WSJ, with a bigger audience and a lot more money, just bid his price beyond their budget?

Eleanor Holmes Norton thinks it is racist....

or at least "worrisome" to suggest any part of DC is dangerous. Vince Gray and Al sharpton think it is "venomous."

I wonder which parts of the city Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Reverend Al Sharpton, and Mayoral candidate Vince Gray thinks are NOT safe for tourists?

Would they send a tourist anywhere without any guidance, as all of DC, under their governance, is safe?

Since they seem to suggest that it is racist to say any part of DC might be dangerous, may I pick three addresses, one for each of them to sit on a stoop and read a book outdoors all alone for an evening?

If there is some cul-de-sac somewhere that is not completely as it should be, what have they done about it lately?

The perfect storm

For the past week, I have been attacked on line and on TV as a racist for writing a guide for tea partiers coming to this week's Glenn Beck rally (or other marches on DC) at my heretofore almost unknown blog. I am a racist because I advised people to avoid whole sections of our collapsing and dangerous subway system (Metro) unless they took a local like me with them.

My friends have found it amazing that such a fuss has been made. But there is a reason. We are seeing the perfect storm that is about to wipe out a substantial amount of Democratic political power: the economy slides into the abyss, even after the stimulus medication Obama said would save it; Congressional candidates run screaming from their Democratic leaders, airing campaign ads attacking Obama, Pelosi, and Reid; and locally "leaders" like Eleanor Holmes Norton and Vince Gray who have long papered over crime, racial segregation and atrophied opportunities created by their own party, must lash out about the "worrisome" "venom" of their critics. Ms. Norton is "worried" alright. Worried that a new Congress will be investigating her cronies.

What's really funny is the complete journalistic incompetence this has shown. It's like I (and my linked Maine tea partier blogger Andrew Ian Dodge) set a booby trap for MSNBC and the Leftover blogosphere. I have long been of the opinion, even before the Journ0Lists story broke, that other than the Drudge Report and the National Enquirer, many journalists are nothing more than flaks for the political class, covering up their failed stimulus programs, and their exercise of seignorial rights to interns, masseurs, and campaign staffers. This week confirms that for me.


First the Huffington Post and Rachel Maddow erroneously inform everyone that my guide was
written by someone in deepest, whitest rural Maine, when I have lived in DC since 1980 (and before that lived for years in Obama's old south side neighborhood in Chicago).

Then Maddow comes up with a map of where I told tourists it would be safe to go on their own, that consist of a teeny area of the Mall, downtown, and West End. When I clearly said all of the red line in Montgomery County and NW DC and everything west of 14th Street (which includes the historically African American neighborhoods of Crestwood, Shepherd's Park, Colonial Village, and 16th Street Heights). One wonders how many Oxford dons one has to blow to get a PhD when one cannot read?

(In Maddow's defense I believe she was depending on the accuracy of blogs called "Little Green Footballs" by some coward named Charles Johnson, who has blocked my ability to reply to his innaccuracies on his blog, and something called DCist.com produced by people in Manhattan who claim to know about DC, even though they don't know any of the geography I just mentioned above.)

Then the Leftover lemmings from the Huffington Post on called me a bigot who was telling people to avoid gays and racial minorities. When I am openly gay and have dated someone from every race and ethnic group on earth, with the exception of Chechnyans, Aleuts, and Eskimos (and I am currently single so if you are reasonably attractive, a good conversationalist, and are in those groups feel free to give a call).

Next a purportedly award winning journalist named Andrea Stone at AOLNews wrote a (slightly more balanced) piece wherein she claims to have tried to reach me repeatedly. No calls, no messages, no emails from her. When I check, just out of curiosity, Andrea and I have 8 FaceBook friends in common. And my phone number is listed. The leftoid Talking Points Memo (which wrote its own Journ-0-Lisp reproduction of the HuffPo stock piece), WMAL radio, David Weigel from Slate. and local WUSA Channel 9 and a local FOX affiliate all managed to call my listed number. Woodward and Bernstein move over -- Andrea Stone is on the beat!

Then MSNBC, which is infamous for having NO African American hosts or co-hosts, employs mush mouthed hack Eugene Robinson on the Maddow show, and that more honest and respectable African American guy who appears on the McLaughlin Group (his name escapes me) to chortle on about how my guide would prevent visiting tea partiers from eating at Ben's Chili Bowl (didn't Michelle Obama say not to eat that stuff?) at 13th and U Streets. Apparently the almost all white MSNBC network needed black faces to give them some street cred on DC neighborhoods.

Now we know that Chris Matthews travels far and wide to find celebrity lesbians to molest, sometimes all the way to Burbank, but I suspect I have been out dining and dancing in the New U way more than he has -- and more than Robinson or the other guy. And, as pseudo-journalists and pretend DC citizens, they seem unaware that the New U clubs had stabbings and shootings that led openly gay, left-liberal, Democratic city council member Jim Graham to consider shutting them down (http://dcist.com/2007/06/29/another_shootin.php). I guess Jim Graham has been a Manchurian candidate all this time, a secret raving right-wing conspirator of the Tea Party. Welcome aboard Jim! Cosmos at 5:00 at JR's?

So it is moral and thoughtful to tell tourists to go to this neighborhood at night and to smear me as a racist for telling them not to do so, according to all white MSNBC. Right Chris! It seems that that tingling synapse in your leg is the only part of your central nervous system that is still alive.


What this whole affair shows us about the Leftovers is what we knew from the first time noted political philosopher and high school drop out Janeane Garofalo pronounced on the psychology of tea partiers: the left is intellectually bankrupt. Obama is flailing -- at this point his best strategy would be to campaign FOR Republican candidates. Boxer, Reid et al will soon have to become lobbyists or beg Obama for ambassadorships to support their tax predator ruling elite lifestyles. All the Keynesian hogwash their PR flaks spew is rejected by a growing majority of voters (even if in their own little caves at HuffPo and Salon the inmates think "Mises" is the plural of "mice"). They have nothing left but seizing on anything they can and screaming racism. The one tool in their box, and it no longer works. They have already lost this election. What new form of scapegoating and demonization will they invent for the next one?

Socialism in practice

Georgetown Starbucks claims today is slower than usual. Beckestanis didn't make it this far. But they broke down the metro/subway system at 8 am. System overload, Metro threw the gates open and said just get out, no charge, no ticket needed.

Seems like Metro, between my world famous racist attack, and the crowd, and it's own incompetence, has had a bad week.

Next week 5 metro stops are shut down by order of the National Transportation Safety Board. G-d federal government fucking things up for all the other governments!

Tea Partier's Warning-Filled Guide to D.C. | The Atlantic Wire

Tea Partier's Warning-Filled Guide to D.C. | The Atlantic Wire

Except you are incompetent and/or liar. I tell people they can go anywhere on the Red Line up to Shady Grove, Maryland for instance. I don't see that on your map. That's most of NW DC.

And I know Laura Olin and Max Fisher, that, like Maddow and Matthews, and perplexingly Eugene Robinson (maybe he sings for his suppers at Ben's Chili Bowl whenever all white MSNBC needs a black face to chime in) you thought those black people you saw coming in and out of the grand homes in Crestwood, 16th Street Heights, Colonial Village, and Shepherd's Park (all west of 14th street and in my broadly drawn safer zone) are the help. But they aren't, they are the homeowners.

I think you may have been confused because some of their kids go to Sidwell Friends, and so are not among the black kids you herd up to sell to the educrat unions for campaign contributions for Democratic candidates. I am sure your work in the slave trade is fascinating but you must really develop broader interests.

You owe me an apology and a retraction, publicly.

Rachel Maddow hosts Obama's Special Olympics

I realized today that one wee bit of justice in the great depression we are on the brink of is that Rachel Maddow, whose socialism caused this, just bought a $1.25 million condo in Manhattan and it will soon be worth $400,000-700,000.

What I'd really like to know is: How long is the jump?

By the way, since you people brought up race....

Rachel Madcow and Spittle Matthews over at MSNBC, the Leftover blogosphere, and assorted other mentally challenged peeps made a lot of assumptions about my "Visitor's Guide" for people coming to the Glenn Beck event: that it had something to do with race; that tea partiers are all of one race; and that the black people they see coming out of the grand houses in Crestwood, Shepherd's Park, Colonial Village, and 16th Street Heights (and other such areas I put in my safer zone for DC tourists) are the help and not the homeowners.

Of course, DC, like most American cities, does have "racial" problems. The Democrats who have ruled DC for decades, before I came here in 1980, have presided over a government water system with the highest lead levels in the US, which they covered up until it was exposed in 2004. They disarmed the local African American residents (much like the KKK did in the Jim Crow south) with gun control so that they would be victims of crime and their property values would plummet. They created junk pseudo-schools that a third of the students drop out of and another third "graduate" from illiterate and unemployable, there lives atrophied forever. (Although in the past few years, a few local Democrats have had second thoughts about their participation in the slave trade, and have stopped herding black kids up to sell to the educrat unions for campaign donations.)

DC is only around 55% African American at this point. Clinton, Bush and Obama have all drastically expanded government spending so that thousands of technocrats (lawyers and economists etc) have come to DC to work at 40 hour a week jobs that pay $80,000-125,000, and they have driven out working class or unemployed people (including African Americans). Since our system of state controlled education herds most working class African Americans into lobotomy pens misnamed schools, they drop out or do not have the GPAs to attend law school and get government subsidized loans as do the white "liberals" who are repopulating DC.

It is a regular complaint in DC, from many groups in many neighborhoods, that "those" people are driving "us" out, with the "those" and the "us" changing as you change zip codes. Which if you work in real estate you hear about all the time (but are forbidden from discussing with a customer, under the Fair Housing laws, which violate the First Amendment rights of all real estate and mortgage industry workers).

I have many a time been in Dupont Circle showing a gay customer property, who would complain to me about how wealthy heterosexuals are moving in and pricing him out of the market, now that we gays have made it so nice. So then we go look at Columbia Heights (which many responders to my blog amusingly assume I have never been in), where posters pasted on utility poles or articles in the "City Paper" or people screaming on the street complain about the gays or yuppies taking over. On one sojourn into Petworth with a young Asian/Caucasian lesbian couple looking for a home (with both sets of parents in tow), some charming tween urchins educated by the DC schools screamed out at the group "You will be our slaves someday!"

I don't know if this is better or worse than the gang of teen boys who followed me and two female condo shoppers, all bundled up beneath hooded jackets on a blustery MLK day, through Adams Morgan along Mintwood Place a few years ago screaming "Do you want to party?," "Can we come in with you?," and "Do you like black cock?" When these students of the charm schools Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton has wrought realized I was a man they became befuddled and apologized to our threesome. (Super weird, huh. Radical feminist theoreticians should feel free to blog replies.)

So DC, like many cities certainly has radical racial segregation and a lack of opportunity for African Americans. Caused mainly by the Democrats who preside over the (de facto) segregated "schools" they have been protecting for decades.

Calling Volunteers

Calling Volunteers
Hi Guys!

If you are in DC this weekend, we could use some help with several volunteer opportunities.

Important Note: If you have been contacted by Beck's event staff, please do not volunteer for TPP and please do continue with your volunteer assignment from them.

If you are still going to be in DC this weekend and if you are able to volunteer, please fill out this form to let us know. Also, please be come to the Hyatt on Capitol Hill at 7:00 pm Friday night for our Meet Up and to get further details about volunteering. David Jaget from RightNetwork will be at the Hyatt during this time.

If you need to email us regarding volunteering, please include 828 Volunteer in the subject line. This is important so that we can quickly and easily see your phone number. Also, you can text Jenny Beth at 770-878-1550 but she is having trouble keeping up returning calls right now because of the overwhelming number of messages. So, texting is the best way to use this number.

Below, is an email from David Jaget of RightNetwork, the new cable network dedicated to right-minded Americans.
Letter from David Jaget, Founder of Right Network
To my fellow Tea Party Patriots,

I, along with my partner's, have created an entertainment media company for Right-minded Americans. It launches on TV, web and mobile on Sept. 8th. We approach this enterprise with a profound sense of responsibility, as we are quite aware of the potential impact RightNetwork could have on the conversation and ultimately the culture of our country.

We welcome your thoughtful input and hope to make you smile, laugh, engaged and hopeful. We'll be asking for your help periodically, as the forces against us will be great. It may be just sharing our website with a friend, perhaps calling your cable or satellite provider or offering your assistance to hand out leaflets and buttons at one of the many patriotic gatherings in the coming months.

This weekend we could use the assistance of individuals to hand our leaflets within the Glenn Beck Rally in Washington DC. If you will be there and would like to help out, we'd be greatly appreciative. I'll meet you, shake your hand and offer you exclusive RightNetwork buttons. It's a small token, but heartfelt, from an upstart media company.

I'd like to thank Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth for their selfless and inspiring support of RightNetwork.

My assessment of Rachel Maddow

In response to the brilliant and lovely Megan McCardle's blog at the Atlantic:

My guide wasn't meant for savvy urbanites like you or indeed for people moving here to live.

It's for people who would never visit a metropolis except to protest the imperial government located here.

I have addressed the boobish coverage by Maddow, Matthews, Huffington Post and other flaks on the blog "Tea Party -- One Lump or Two?"

I notice that the very first poster below, lemming like, repeats Maddow about how a teeny sliver of the city was on my "allowed" list where out-of-towners were allowed to venture on their own. His trust is misplaced; Maddow is an airhead, credentialed or not. My rough rule of thumb of staying west of 14th street NW and in SE Cap Hill around Eastern Market or on the red, orange and blue lines, not the green or yellow, includes almost of all of NW DC (over 1/3 of the city), including the historically black neighborhoods of Crestwood, Shepherd's Park, Colonial Village, and 16th Street Heights (as well as Arlington and Montgomery Counties).

I don't know if Rachel Maddow just doesn't know any black people in these safer and affluent neighborhoods, or if she saw them come outside but assumed they were the help because the houses were so nice. I know she wanted to scream racism (initially she claimed my blog was written by a someone from deepest, whitest Maine) to help her beloved Obama regime, which is beyond help.

Maybe she should return to Afghanistan and file another report about how Obama's predator drones, unlike Bush's, represent a delivery of essential city services, and not war.

More guidance for all the people MSNBC and HuffPo are calling ignorant hicks

Fortunately for the Tea Party folks who will be driving in , we at Outside The Beltway already have a handy-dandy guide to driving in DC Traffic:

http://www.outsidethebeltway.com/dc-traffic-guide/

Say, are you new in town?

I have one message of great importance for all the tea partiers at the Beck event: after being smeared as a racist by MSNBC this week, if I don't get laid after "Restoring Our Honor," the terrorists win.

Bread and Chocolate

The purported owner of the Bread and Chocolate chain, where I am eating delicious meat loaf for lunch as I type this (wifi!), attended by a charming waitress who happens to be Ethiopian, posted that they don't like (my?) racism (below), but by the way they are not Ethiopian (the staff is) they are Greek! And they make a great black and white cookie. Boycott or no?

Glenn Beck

Co-conspirator Andrew Ian Dodge and I both criticize Glenn Beck. I don't like how much religion is in his political philosophy and I thought his interview w/Palin odd. For bringing authors from Hayek to Schlaes to a mass audience, for letting politically incorrect African Americans appear on TV for the first time ever, and for exposing the deep fascism of the tax predator ruling class, he is a minor deity

See:

Thanks gals!

From a socialist Australian pen pal who I have "known" for years: "He writes well, doesn't he? I don't align myself politically with Bruce,but he's never been a racist. He's a Sweetheart. Gaele xoxo." Several African American working class women I have worked with also called me today to say the people calling me a racist shows that MSNBC are fools.

Last refuge of scoundrels

For the past two days, I have been attacked on line and on TV as a racist for writing a guide for tea partiers coming to this week's Glenn Beck rally (or other marches on DC) at my heretofore almost unknown blog "Tea Parties -- One Lump or Two?"

All the Keynesian hogwash their PR flaks spew is rejected by a growing majority of voters (even if in their own little caves at HuffPo and Salon the inmates think "Mises" is the plural of "mice"). They have nothing left but seizing on anything they can and screaming racism. The one tool in their box, and it no longer works. They have already lost this election. What new form of scapegoating and demonization will they invent for the next one?

My suggestion to any visitors to DC this weekend is to check these URL's and learn what is safe and what is not. All the Liberal hatemongering aimed at visiting citizens to DC is crap. Even the DC police think the Green Line is dangerous.

Check out where the concentration of crime cameras and avoid those areas.

Thomas Sowell's definition of a "racist"

is "someone who is winning an argument with a liberal."

Rachel Maddow, the wannabee Leni Reifensthal of our current tax predator ruling class

If you want to post replies to Leftovers, I was attacked yesterday for being a racist (even on Rachel Maddow's show and Huffington Post) for advising tourists at the Beck March this Saturday to avoid certain subway stops:

Yours truly has just been attacked in the Leftover blogosphere (not the first time) including Charles Johnson's website "Little Green Footballs" for my FaceBook Note (and Blogger post) recommending that people visiting on 8/28 avoid certain metro stops. Apparently that makes me a racist.

My blog is here: www.teapartiers.blogspot.com

Famous Beltway journ-o-list David Weigel called me, and then my tea party/CPAC friend Andrew Ian Dodge (who had re-posted my 8/28 March on DC travel tips on his Maine tea party website) instant messaged me.

My reply:

"Chas, Chas, Chas -- why such incompetence and/or dishonesty. That blog isn't from Maine, it's from DC. I wrote it and I have lived in DC since 1980.

The fellow in Maine is just linking to my Tea Party blog, "Tea Party -- One Lump or Two?" at www.teapartiers.blogspot.com.

And despite your possibly legally actionable whine of racism, my injunction to strangers to not offend the local Ethiopian etc populations by making guesses about what country they are from, and my recommendation that strangers not get on the green or yellow lines and ride them out to the end of the city, had nothing to do with each other.

Sorry Charlie. One again you show us what idiots you Demwits be."

http://littlegreenfootballs.com

Of course, being a pussy, Charles Johnson deleted that reply a few hours later (some of his own regulars complained) and blocked me from his website. Squawk!

In in his defense, Johnson was just copying a story he saw at www.DCist.com website, which must be run by total morons. One wonders if all their coverage of DC is this incompetent?

But then the lemmings at Huffington Post and the Rachel Maddow show repeated every innacuracy including that it was written in Maine.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/08/23/glenn-beck-rally-attendee_n_691578.html

Maddow even drew a map of DC metropolitan area purportedly showing where I said strangers would be safest to get off and wander around, incompetently leaving out all of NW DC and Montgomery County. This girl should go back to Afghanistan and file more reports about how Obama's predator drone killings (unlike Bush's??) are just a delivery of essential city services, like she did last month. (Maddow had Eugene Robinson from the little bus at the Washington Post chortling along with her. One is surprised she didn't spend 15 minutes tea bagging with him, but then, I guess Anna Marie Cox is more her bowl of sashimi.) And though she too falsely attributed the text to someone from Maine (the implication being they don't know DC and are 'fraid of those darkies!), she projected the text on the wall behind her so you could see "by Bruce Majors" for a few seconds.

To which of these journ-0-lisps should we send this week's Leni Reifenstahl wannabee award for service in defending the tax predator ruling class?

Leftover bloggers too stupid to be believed; no wonder Obama is in the toilet

Incompetent "journ-0-lisps" from the Leftovers blogospher spent the day saying a blogger in Maine had written a racist denunciation of the Green and Yellow lines today (morons Jason Linkins of the Huffington Post, Charles Johson of Little Green Footballs, and an unknown at Dcist.com). Because a friend in Maine linked the blog entry below to his blog, though it was written by me and I have lived and worked in DC since 1980 (in 3 of the cities 4 quadrants). So I will add that the Red Line isn't safe either, another failure of socialism, condemned by government safety inspectors, and will be closed for repairs the following weekend, after Glenn Beck's 8/28 event.

Metro to replace track switch to comply with NTSB recommendation, maintain a state of good repair

For immediate release: August 19, 2010



Labor Day Weekend track work will close five Red Line stations

Metro officials will replace a track switch to improve rail system safety and conduct several additional projects between the Takoma and Glenmont Metrorail stations, which will necessitate the closure of five Red Line stations throughout Labor Day Weekend, (Sept. 3-7). The track switch replacement is work that has been recommended by the National Transportation Safety Board.

In addition, track workers will focus on replacing old components to keep the rail system in a state of good repair. They will replace two old track switches at the Silver Spring Metrorail station and install 750 new track fasteners, 1,720 new crossties, 525 feet of new track, 500 new rail insulators, new heater tape, new tunnel safety lights and lay 2400 feet of new fiber optic communications cables in support of upgraded cell phone access. In addition, workers will replace up to 6400 feet of emergency fire lines and repair up to 4800 feet of water leaks in the tunnels.

The Takoma, Silver Spring, Forest Glen, Wheaton and Glenmont Metrorail stations will be closed during the Labor Day Holiday weekend from 10 p.m., Friday, Sept. 3 through 1 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 7. Normal service will resume on Tuesday, Sept. 7, at 5 a.m.

To help people get around the work zone, Metro will operate free shuttle buses to all stations between the Fort Totten and Glenmont Metrorail stations. Customers should build an extra 40 minutes into their travel plans if they need to pass through the work zone. Click here for the take one brochure.

This will be one of the largest maintenance projects involving station closures in Metro's 34-year history. Officials anticipate having more than 500 employees and four contractors working during the Labor Day Holiday weekend.

By consolidating the work during the Labor Day Holiday weekend, Metro will save more than $1 million in late-night maintenance costs that would have otherwise resulted in 150 days of single-tracking.

Red Line Service

From 10 p.m., Friday, September 3, to 1 a.m., on Tuesday, September 7, all Red Line trains will operate between the Shady Grove and Fort Totten Metrorail station. The Fort Totten Metrorail station on the Red Line will remain open. (The rail system will remain open one extra hour on Monday night for a football game at FedEx Field.)

During the day, all Red Line trains will operate approximately every 6 minutes on Saturday, Sept. 4, and approximately every 7 to 8 minutes on Sunday, Sept. 5 and Monday, Sept. 6. After 9:30 p.m., on Sept. 3, 4, 5 and 6, all Red Line trains will operate approximately every 15 minutes.

Last Red Line Trains Between Fort Totten and Glenmont – Friday, September 3

The last trains will operate through the work zone prior to 10 p.m. because personnel need time to remove power from both tracks and to safely assemble maintenance crews in the designated work zones.

On Friday, Sept. 3, prior to closure of the Red Line between the Fort Totten and Glenmont Metrorail stations, the last Glenmont bound Red Line train through the work area will depart Shady Grove at 8:58 p.m., Fort Totten at 9:47 p.m., Takoma at 9:50 p.m., Silver Spring at 9:53 p.m., Forest Glen at 9:56 p.m., Wheaton at 9:59 p.m. and arrive at the Glenmont Metrorail station at 10:01 p.m. The last Shady Grove bound Red Line train through the work area will depart the Glenmont Metrorail station at 9:35 p.m., Wheaton at 9:38 p.m., Forest Glen at 9:41 p.m., Silver Spring at 9:44 p.m., Takoma at 9:47 p.m., Fort Totten at 9:49 p.m., and arrive at the Shady Grove Metrorail station at 10:38 p.m.

Last Red Line Train Departures from Fort Totten

In order for Shady Grove bound Red Line trains to make their final connections for the Blue, Orange, Yellow and Green lines, the last train will depart the Fort Totten Metrorail station at 2:51 a.m., on Friday, Sept. 3 (early Saturday morning) and Saturday, Sept. 4 (early Sunday morning), 11:51 p.m., on Sunday, Sept. 5 and 12:51 a.m., on Tuesday, Sept. 7.

Labor Day Weekend Shuttle Bus Service

From 10 p.m., Friday, Sept. 3, until 1 a.m., on Tuesday, Sept. 7, Metro will operate the following free shuttle buses between these locations:

Green Shuttle: Glenmont Metrorail station to and from the Georgia Ave-Petworth Metrorail station with stops at the Wheaton, Forest Glen and Silver Spring Metrorail stations.
Yellow Shuttle: Silver Spring Metrorail station to and from the Fort Totten Metrorail station with a stop at the Takoma Metrorail station.
Red Shuttle: Glenmont Metrorail station to and from the Fort Totten Metrorail station with stops at the Wheaton, Forest Glen, Silver Spring and Takoma Metrorail stations.
The weekend's free shuttle buses will operate continuously in coordination with Red Line service.

Rider Tips for Labor Day Weekend

Customers who normally use the eastern end of the Red Line between the Glenmont and Fort Totten Metrorail stations should consider using the western end of the Red Line to get to downtown Washington or taking Metrobus or Ride-On buses that connect from the eastern to the western end of the Red Line. Parking at Metro facilities will be free throughout the Labor Day Holiday Weekend.

On Monday, Sept. 6, the Metrorail system will close one hour later than usual to support fans attending the Virginia Tech vs. Boise State University football game at FedEx Field. The rail system will close at 1 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 7. The last train departing the Largo Town Center Metrorail station will be at 12:24 a.m., and Morgan Boulevard at 12:27 a.m., after the game.

Customer Assistance

From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 4, to Monday, Sept. 6, Metro administrative employees will be available at the Glenmont, Wheaton, Forest Glen, Silver Spring, Takoma and Georgia Ave-Petworth Metrorail stations to help customers navigate around the track work.

To alert customers about this work, Metro will issue e-Alerts, post signs in key stations, place notices on station kiosks, and make train and system announcements. Additional information will be available on Metro=s web site at www.metroopensdoors.com.

The Trip Planner, located on Metro's Web site, will not reflect the impact of this work on its schedules. Customers should allow more time for their trips because of this work. For more information on traveling by Metrobus or Metrorail, customers may call (202) 637-7000 or TTY (202) 638-3780.

So you are coming to the 8/28 Glenn Beck March on Washington?

Herein a visitors' guide. I will be updating it daily. Please post any issues you want addressed or researched.


I am told (but did not check) that hotels are very full. If one stays at interstate hotels (try those along the Richmond Highway in Alexandria or Fairfax County) you can get a room for $40-80 a night. But you will be dependent on driving into DC, not using a subway or bus, as you will be beyond the public transit system's reach.


So this is mainly a list of free, cheap, good, bad, and safe or unsafe things.




Free


One can get free wifi access in many parts of DC: any Starbucks (and often any restaurant adjacent to Starbucks); most Barnes & Noble bookstores (which usually contain a Starbucks); Caribou Coffee (another chain, though it restricts your access to "adult" sites including some FaceBook functions); Illy's (at New Hampshire Avenue and M Streets NW), which also has the best coffee.

Safety and Mores


DC's population includes refugees from every country, as the families of embassy staffs of third world countries tend to stay in DC whenever a revolution in their homeland means that anyone in their family would be in danger if they went back. Most taxi drivers and many waiters/waitresses (especially in local coffee shops like the Bread and Chocolate chain) are immigrants, frequently from east Africa or Arab countries. As a rule, African immigrants do not like for you to assume they are African Americans and especially do not like for you to guess they are from a neighboring country (e.g. Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia) with whom they may have political or military tensions. It's rare to meet anyone who gets really offended, but you can still be aware of the issue.


Many parts of DC are safe beyond the areas I will list here, but why chance it if you don't know where you are?


If you are on the subway stay on the Red line between Union Station and Shady Grove, Maryland. If you are on the Blue or Orange line do not go past Eastern Market (Capitol Hill) toward the Potomac Avenue stop and beyond; stay in NW DC and points in Virginia. Do not use the Green line or the Yellow line. These rules are even more important at night. There is of course nothing wrong with many other areas; but you don't know where you are, so you should not explore them.


If on foot or in a cab or bus, stay in Bethesda, Arlington (preferably north Arlington), Crystal City, Falls Church, Annandale, or Alexandria, or in DC only in northwest DC west (i.e. larger street numbers) of 14th or 16th streets, or if on Capitol Hill only in SE Capitol Hill (zip 20003) between 1st and 8th Streets, not farther out than 8th (e.g. 9th, 10th etc). (Or stay on the Mall and at the various monuments.) Again there are many other lovely places, from the Catholic University of America to Silver Spring, Maryland. But you don't know where you are so you cannot go, especially at night, unless you take me with you.
