Just north of the White House, I visited Sunday for the first time. I am very much a fan of the “Black Lives Matter” block print letters as an artwork, and I wished to take in the broader social scene. On the plaza I saw fully boarded up buildings for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute, the AFL-CIO, and the Motion Picture Association of America, suitable victims it would seem.
On the Reagan building the sign reads “Fire Command Center.”
Downtown Washington D.C. will not be returning to its prior nature for some time to come.
