Just Like the Old Days

I talked with Ed and Richard at the corner of Tenth and M Saturday morning. We were watching the cleanup of an accident in which a nice black Mercedes was totalled by a DC cab. T-Boned, actually. Don't know if anyone in the Mercedes was hurt, and it may have been parked.
I have since learned that the Mercedes had been parked, eastbound, just at the southeast corner of Tenth and M. It was just pulling out, probably without looking. The cab hit it. It was 5:00am. After the accident, a (presumed) prostitute got out, talked on her cell phone, and was picked up by someone and was out of there in no time. (Note the "her" in the last sentence. A few years ago, that was a sign of progress in the neighborhood.)
