D.C. was a bit rough when I was there in the early 70s. Goddess only knows how nutty things are now but I don't imagine things have gotten better. Never let anyone tell you there'a no life beyond "the hood".
P.S. I was listening to the music on your page and got confused for a second, I thought I was hearing the music from my page. (the Sparks record did it). You are my sister
Hey Ms. LEO. I noticed you're in D.C.. That's where I lived before I moved to the Triangle.(N.N. Va.) I graduated from Ballou highschool, Is the school still there? I left Washington while the subway was still being built. I am still quite fond of "Chocolate City". Little China Town was pertty cool too. I took a few lessons in Kung Fu there, interesting traditions.
