It'll buff out


Can't avoid a quick comment. I grew up in the DC suburbs, and our family used to frequently take our houseboat up to Georgetown to view the sights. At the time (early '70s) there was no place to tie up there - you just turned around an went home. It looks like they've turned it into a pretty nice destination for boaters. (But not sailboats, since the bridges are too low.) Just be sure to get off the boat quickly once you're there!

Yes, I was wondering the same thing. Also, his tone of voice seemed to be saying, "RELAX, DAMMITT!"

I'm not sure that it was appropriate for the guy who did the damage to be rendering assistance at that point. It's a crime scene, after all, and the suspect is stepping all over the evidence.

I wonder if the "perp" was required to take a BUI test. It would certainly have been top priority had it been a civilian.
