All in all, the Athletic Club was awesome, the only serious drawback was the lack of parking.

IIRC, the CAC had parking rights at the Allerton garage, formerly on E12th. While you were at the Club, the lot would wash and detail your car.

You tell people "I hear things on the internet, thus it's true"...ya get this...

Alleged gunman tells police he wanted to rescue children at D.C. pizza shop after hearing fictional Internet accounts



For 45 minutes, police said, Edgar Maddison Welch, cradling an AR-15 assault-style rifle, roamed the Comet Ping Pong pizza restaurant looking to prove an Internet conspiracy theory that the popular D.C. restaurant harbored juvenile sex slaves.

The few patrons had fled before Welch shot off the lock to an inside door, sending a bullet into a computer tower. The North Carolina man then turned the gun on an employee who emerged from the back holding pizza dough. The worker ran out, unharmed.

With D.C. police amassing outside on Sunday afternoon, Welch finally walked out with his hands up — but not before he finished his search.

He had come to rescue the children, court papers say he later told police, and now was convinced that none was being harmed there.

D.C. Magistrate Judge Joseph E. Beshouri on Monday ordered Welch — known to his friends by his middle name, Maddison — jailed until his next hearing on Thursday. He faces several gun-related charges, including assault with a dangerous weapon.
---
A new Internet conspiracy theory emerged Monday. Citing Welch’s minor background as an actor, some claimed the gun incident was either staged or even a hoax altogether. And on Sunday night, Michael Flynn Jr., the son and top aide of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for national security adviser, tweeted that the Comet Ping Pong conspiracy theory might still be true.

^Wait...did you watch the video? He was running away. He was shot in the back. That's murder.

Everything in context.  He was fleeing an officer, resisting arrest and attempted to disarm an officer....  did you watch the video?

In the footage that captured Scott’s death, Slager could be seen placing an item — his Taser — near Scott’s body after the shooting.

Everything in context.

You didn't get my point.  Yes, you shut down one.  Maybe those owners go away.  But the same damn thing, attracting the same damn problems pops up shortly after.  First shooting, they get a warning.  Second shooting they get closed.  Lather. Rinse. Repeat.  Over/under is 18 months.

What organized crime figures run this nomadic nuisance? What has kept them out of prison? Campaign contributions? Unwillingness to use the RICO statutes against them?

People of America: If you didn't already know, you are now starting to understand the fact that our president-elect Donald Trump is absolutely unfit for office.

He is a psychopath. He doesn't take advice, he doesn't admit mistakes and he thinks he knows everything. He has zero experience.

He has no plan, or any understanding of how the world works. Only thing he cares about is himself. He is delusional.

He believes in conspiracy theories, and he's constantly being fed more of them. He doesn't believe in our own intelligence agencies.

His promises won't happen. There will be no wall. He won't "drain the swamp" or deport millions. You will get nepotism and cronyism instead.

He doesn't care about you, or your civil rights. He is not interested in your well-being. See his tax plan, he's going to help the 1% and that's all.

Have you looked at his closest advisors? See anyone even remotely sane? There's convicted criminals, racists and conspiracy theorists.

This is some third-world dictator stuff in the making. Expect him to suppress press freedom, silence critique and attack your liberties by portraying the victims as villains.

But hey, maybe you will get Alex Jones on the TV. He will talk how CIA's secret mind control chemicals make frogs gay or similar goofiness. We must understand that he's not a normal president who is following a plan. Don't pretend he has one.

Keep a close eye on what he and his minions are doing as things might go downhill really fast. He will piss off a lot of powerful people. And they will soon attempt to take him down, hopefully with as little collateral damage as possible. We will all play a role to some degree, including innocent victim. What role you play is up to you.

The only thing the police are investigating (rightly so) is how these businesses got caught up by Trump's guttertrash view of alt-reality.
