Shootings @ the Capitol –
By now you all heard about the shootings on Friday in front of the Capital. It happened around 2pm less than 2 miles from Gravensteen haunted house. I was busy working while it was going on but later, at 4 pm I had to leave. Talk about traffic congestion! I nearly drove for 2 hours that day. Our facebook suddenly showed people talking about not showing up because of this shooting. Naturally, for a fist ever haunt in DC, we panic. But fortunately, yesterday was our busiest day so far and we had a great time. We had screams that could be heard from outside so it would seem the shootings didn't stop anyone from wanting to be scared. Additionally, yesterday afternoon, a man set himself on fire at the mall in downtown DC. People still came. What does that tell you about people here in DC?
