Washington tweets. A lot. The Washington Tweets column is a collection of the most interesting, recent Washington-area tweets.

You might have already known that I like @rippleWDC but check out my most recent review of the Cleveland Park gem:

Security guard at Mayor Grey's house told #hungerstrikers that he wasn't home and so couldn't join him for breakfast. Oh well. #occupydc

Had a wonderful, relaxing time with family, but sure did miss the heck put of my kittens, my friends, and my beloved DC.
