Two quickies on parking in the District.
1. If your Ford Bronco is parked on 20th and M, your car is mostly on fire and the DCFD would like a word.
2. I got a parking ticket again today, the third in a month. As usual, I was parked illegally in a space zoned for District residents only. But the ticket indicates it was issued while I was in the car, with the engine running, waiting for someone. Even if the that sneaky hobbit's ticket machine had a bad clock, the only time I wasn't in the car's toasty embrace, I was leaning on it talking to a friend-in-law. I'd give every last dime to that fake Jamaican to learn this sleight-of-hand.
