Shovel Patrol: Adrian Fenty

Washington City Paper embarked Sunday afternoon upon an SUV-assisted inspection of various notable persons' sidewalks. Did they comply with their civic duty to clear walkways for pedestrians within eight daylight hours after the snowfall ended?

Adrian M. Fenty

Position: mayor of the District of Columbia

Address: 4712 17th St. NW (Crestwood)

Observations: Fenty's come in for some listserv-driven grief over his relatively well-plowed block. Whatever—he's the mayor; he's gotta get out and run the city. Fenty wins kudos anyway for being a good snow neighbor. By late Sunday afternoon, the sidewalks in front of his Crestwood rambler were well-cleared (albeit with some minor icing), including a path to the police security shack located next to the house. That raises the question—did the cops do the shoveling? Said the officer on duty Sunday, "I have no idea."

Grade: A

Path to guard shack:

    I'm sure it was an athletic release, unless it was cleared on government time, in which case I'm sure a needy ward-4 resident was paid handsomely to clear the walk.
    Oh, whatever.

  • Truth Hurts

    Fenty gets an A and Gray gets a D+. LL, you're so in the bag for Fenty. Geez!

  • Contrarian

    What I don't get is that when people (whoever, x/ Jack Evans) clear a sidewalk they do it the width of a snow shovel, not the width of the sidewalk...

  • noodlez

    Truth Hurts YOU REALLY NEED TO GET OFF FAGGIE FENTY'S SACK.

  • Jesse Helms

    Noodlez you are correct, Truth Hurts and Downtown rez constantly suck on Fenty's nut sack. These 2 are like little bitches and they must don't have a funking life. Truth Hurts says he's married with children, but when do he have time to fuck his wife and take care of his children? What a loser!

  • Downtown rez

    Hey, Jesse you embittered loony freak, I'm married with children too. My youngest is falling asleep in my lap now.
    It's a good life.

  • Truth Hurts

    @ noodlez and Jesse: You're both ignorant simple minded worthless people. You hide behind keyboards, yet your comments suggest you're familiar with the streets. This is the last comment I'll post to you regardless of the future idiotic taunts you'll likely keep writing unless CP blocks you from this site.

    So here's the message: Very bad things often come to those who disrespect a man and his family as you have done in comments #4 and #5. These things can happen when people least expect it and in ways they hadn't considered. Screen names aren't terribly hard to pierce, so you're not that difficult to find. You've been warned; be smart.

  • Jesse Helmes

    Truth Hurts, I a so scared! Are you making threats bitch boy? I doubt if you want to bring you white ass to my hood and make it out. The City Paper need to ban your lonely ass from here. If you have a wife and children, spend time with them and stay the City Paper blog along with you boyfriend Downtown Rez. I suspect, you are the same person or possible gay lovers. Now come find me Truth Hurts. I am in Raleigh in the grave yard.

  • Bisexual Vampire

    Truth Hurts you need to chill or stop blogging for a while. It sure sound like you are making threats against others to do physical harm. You should be reported to the F.B.I. or the Metropolitan Police Department. This is a blog and you can't take what people say personally. Let it go guy and move on or stop making comments on the Washington City Paper. I support free speech, but I don't support making threats of doing physical harm to others. Noodlez and Jesse Helms are entitled to their opinions no matter how stupid or insane they sound.

  • Bisexual Vampire

    Downtown Rez, how old are you? You said you remember snow storms back in the 70's and you have a young child sleeping on your lap. You have to be in your fifties or sixties and you have young children? lol lol I would never want old parents. By the time I became 20, my parents would be in their 70's or 80's. lol lol

    Too many people lie on blogs about who they are, their age, where they, education, etc.

    This blog is truly entertainment for me, because I have a life outside blogs.

  • WARD4NDC

    I will give King Fenty a C for removing the snow from in front of his Crestwood D.C. home. King Fenty can take notes from Ward 2 D.C. Councilmember Jack Evans on how to shovel snow in front of your home. Washington City Paper, please go to Ward 4 D.C. Councilmember Muriel Bowser home and see if she have shoveled snow in front of her home in Lamond-Riggs Northeast.

  • WARD4NDC

    P.S. Adrian should have had his sons Andrew and Matthew to shovel snow in front of his home. The twins are big enough to shovel snow. I hope they will not grow up to be spoiled elitist light skinned Negro boys/men.

    WHOSE YOUR DADDY??

  • actually

    @sedcdude

    You mean, "who's" your daddy. in other words, "who is your daddy?" "Who's" is a contraction for "who is."

  • Spell Check

    @ actually

    sedude,noodles,jesse helms and friends think a contraction is when their baby momma goes in labor.

  • parole board

    All points bullitin for Noodlez. Anyone with knowlege of his DCDC number please reply here. he is a person of interest at this time

  • WARD4NDC

    LOL LOL LOL, this site is a riot at times. I take it and some of the people on here comments with a grain of salt. Hey SEDCDUDE, how are you? Two individuals on here are always kissing each others asses and agreeing with each other. I truly believe these 2 individuals are the same people using different names. Whites in D.C. think King Fenty is the best thing since white bread. I guess his being a light skinned Negro gives Fenty an advantage in the eyes of white America. Liberal redneck Senator Harry Reid was truthful about whites in America perferring light skinned Negroes. Whites in America don't feel threaten by light skinned Negroes like Fenty. I ignore fools like Jesse Helms, Grace Jones, and others, because their comments are ignorant/racist. Many white liberals are racist and they want to keep blacks in their place and most whites in America feel superior to blacks. I have never trusted the white man and I will never trust him. I will continue to feed the white man with a long handle spoon and I tolerate them. I can assure you Fenty will fall from grace soon and he will come running back to the black community for support.

    I give Mayor Fenty an F- for opening the District Government knowing the Federal Government is closed and Metro is operating on a skeleton schedule. What is wrong with Adrian Fenty? Is the guy on drugs? He is nothing like the guy from the beginning of his career. Fenty will not be getting my vote and a lot of other D.C. voters votes come September 2010. D.C. Councilmember Jack Evans and others sitting on the Council kisses the behind of King Fenty and they are afraid of this guy. Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans don't think no one can defeat his King Fenty, but you are wrong Jack Evans. Longtime and native D.C. residents/voters are tired of all the liberal BS policies/legislation being passed by the 13 idiots sitting on the Council along with arrogant Adrian Fenty. There are many streets in Ward 5 that haven't seen a D.C. Government truck come pass removing the snow. I do realize, this is a lot of snow that most of us have ever seen in a long time or in our lives. I will give DPW and DDDOT a grade of a C+ for their effort.

    @ WARD4, how are you my friend, hope all is well with you!!

    My my we have some anal retentive scum lurking about WCP!! Considering this is the same paper who posted, pics n' all of Mr. Marion Barry and a young lady with the words emblazened across the FRONT PAGE..."I PUT YOU OUT IN DENVER CUZ' YOU WOULDN'T SUCK MY DICK".....LMBAO at the hypocrisy, the cowardice, the bleeding hearts.....sissies!

  • noodlez

    THEY ARE TAKING OVER THE RADIO STATIONS SLOWLY BUT SURELY. THAT IS WHY CATHY HUGHES IS WHINING.

    THEY HAVE TOOK OVER MAJOR NEWSPAPERS. NO ONE IS REPORTING NEWS ANY LONGER. JUST SHIT THEY HAVE AN OPINION ON THAT FITS AND PROMOTES THEIR LIFESTYLE. SEE TIM CRAIG WAPO.

    BLOGS ARE BEING OVERRAN BY PUNK ASSES LIKE Truth Hurts. JUST BECAUSE SHE SPENDS ALL HER TIME HERE SHE THINKS THAT THIS SITE BELONGS TO HER EXCLUSIVELY. GO LOG IN TO DCIST THEY ARE IN LOCK STEP OVER THERE.

    WCP IS ONE OF A FEW DECENT RAGS THAT STILL HAS THEIR FINGER IN THE DAM. I JUST HOPE THEY DONT COWER.

  • LOL

    I was angry as hell driving to work yesterday in ward 5. the streets were aweful! I was about to call CM thomas's office and complain. But as my car slid and sided around downtown DC, i realized it is a city wide problem.

    My solution is simple. Increase the amount of salt spread. Sand doesn't dissolve snow, it only gives traction over the ice. Salt with friction from cars will help break down the ice.

    Finally, Fenty closes DC on Wednesday. What could he have been thinking on Monday?? Does he care for the safety of his employees when he requires them to come to work when Metro's only working underground, there's no parking, and the news is telling people not to walk on the street. Even the feds were closed. Glad DC is closed today. Fenty is REALLY OUT OF TOUCH!!!

  • trash patrol
