Walking towards GW last week, half of the street was blocked off by several police cars. Two fire trucks were out and a hazmat unit was unloading stuff from their van. I walked over to one of the police on the perimeter to ask what was going on.
Police Lady: We're not able to release that information at this time.
Me: You know, saying that doesn't really make any of us feel safer about what's going on.
Police Lady: Well, how do you think it makes me feel?
Me: I really have no idea.
I walked away feeling very confused. I guess that was better than feeling frightened.
