Worried About District Crime 

As Mary Beth Sheridan and Donna St. George of the Washington Post report today, last Saturday night four adults and three children were shot at the Edgewood Apartment Complex. It was the fourth shooting there in a year. One person so far has died.

The Edgewood Apartments are located right next to the William E. Doar Jr. Public Charter School for the Performing Arts. D.C. Prep is also located over there. I'm going to call them to see if there are steps we want to take in reaction to this violence.

Meanwhile, what will the Mayor do? Remember he fired Police Chief Ramsey over his response to a crime emergency. Now his replacement has implemented her own plan which has been a total failure. Will he replace Cathy Lanier?

One more question. Will District officials be able to go up to the U.S. Supreme Court and say with a straight face that the gun ban has been a success?
