Also, there is still time for you to make a reservation to Escape the Oval Office or Escape the Classroom."

Inked, did you see the stories on the hit and run death in the 1100 block of H Friday night? Foreign affairs reporter for USA Today riding a motorcycle, was hit by someone driving under the influence who left the scene and was later apprehended.

That intersection is very dangerous. I was almost run over by some guy in a big SUV making a left turn on H street. I had the walk signal. The guy didn't even stop before making a turn. He had to swerve and slam the brakes to avoid hitting me. Some other pedestrians were stunned. Also, noticed that many DC drivers need driving rules lessons. I was riding my bicycle on 11th St and had a clear green light at the intersection of Maryland Ave. Another SUV wanted to make a left turn on Maryland, clearly since I was going straight I have the right of way. She had her left turn signal on and kept turning without yielding to me. When I passed her she started cursing saying how I was supposed to let her go since she had her left turn signal on. How do they even pass the driving test?
