The Morning Metropolitan

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • GM’s not really sure where to start with this one. Apparently a British newspaper wrote an article about the concept of shoplifters using Twitter to organize flash mobs to descend on a store, overwhelm the staff, and make off with some merchandise. But to do this, they (remember “they” is a British newspaper, which generally covers, you know, British or important international news) discuss a recent shoplifting episode at Victoria’s Secret in our little Georgetown. The mob that descended? Four people, with two baby carriages. Four people apparently is British for “mob”.
  • As expected, the Georgetown Post Office is not among those in DC being considered for closing. The USPS, however, is still planning on selling the property to EastBanc, but the post office functions will remain.
