Beware of ideology masquerading as neutral rational thought.

Capitol Hill Corner is a news blog.  Its focus is Capitol Hill community news.  It will endeavor to cover first and foremost, the activities of ANC6B, Eastern Market Commuity Advisory Committee, and The Capitol Hill Restoration Society.   It will provide coverage of other community issues, including the activities of neighboring ANCs, commercial and residential development, activities of neighborhood organizations, and relevant aspects of local politics. Writing for a news blog is different from writing for a newspaper or magazine.  I will correct or clarify any errors of fact upon request.  It is my policy not to participate in the commentary on postings.  Readers of the blog can judge postings after reading the ensuing debate.  My goal is to ask the question of newsmakers:  “Here’s what you’re doing, how do you justify it?”  My point of view is a part of the questions I ask, and/or reflected in my judgment about how to frame postings.  With respect to postings, it is my policy to permit all comments – no matter how critical – except those which are offensive and inappropriate.  The latter category includes personal attacks and name calling. Capitol Hill Corner is edited by Larry Janezich, at ljjanezich@hotmail.com

    DCRA PROTECTION NOW
    We demand Protection for D.C. Residents from the D.C. Regulatory Agency (DCRA) and Rogue D.C. Residential Developers

    You and your home are under siege by developers who are building out (Popbacks) and up (Popups) beside your property without abiding by the DCRA Construction Codes and Rules. DCRA appears to be in bed with the developers which means DCRA is not willing to go against rogue developers to protect D.C. residents. So if you or someone in your D.C. neighborhood has a developer building next door to your house you must:

    1. Arm yourself with the ill planned residential building facts in D.C.
    2. Fight or Flight from your community (Why should you have to leave your home because DCRA will not protect it and you from rogue developers who do not even live in D.C.?)
    3. Stop voting for elected people who are putting developers interest before yours
    4. Discover what the truth is about all this ill planned residential development in D.C.
    5. Share your stories.

    COME TO these Urgent Upcoming Meetings: (Please bring some neighbors with you too) Held at: Northeast Library 330 – 7th St., NE. D.C. 20002 Mezzanine Conference Room 2nd floor

    PLEASE SIGN our petition for, “DCRA Protection Now.”
    I think this is important to demand that DCRA start protecting D.C. residents and their homes instead of rogue developers. Will you sign it too? Here’s the link:
