DC Curfew Stands
There were not enough votes yesterday to pass legislation for a stricter curfew in DC. The old curfew is still in place, however, and kIds (even if they are from the suburbs) have to be off the streets by 11 on week nights and 12 on weekends which is a more reasonable policy than what was proposed. A proponent of the curfew said that they didn't want 13 year olds running around until midnight, but the age the curfew included started at age 17, and as we all know, there's a world of difference between 13 and 17. Anyway-bring the kids to the next all ages show- or let 'em come on their own. It's still a free city-sort of.
