Antarah Crawley’s eulogy for the District

Just found Antarah Crawley’s blog, DISORDR, on which he is posting his collected writings.

Below is an excerpt of his lament on the changed state of the District.

Those who are coming into the city call themselves “Branding Executives,” “Social Media Experts,” “Congressional Aids;” some call them “Millennials” with an idealistic inclination to shake up the system. And, me, I look at them, people near my age and intellect, and I want to be able to welcome them into my home even though they’ve already let themselves in; I want to find some common ground.

Common ground is scarce to come by between the NIMBYs and those who curse anyone standing in the way of progress.
