Will the notorious Dominique Strauss-Kahn return to his Georgetown home now that he's free to roam around -- but not leave -- the United States? Obviously a media outlet thinks that's possible. This evening there is a super sized HD satellite truck parked outside his home on Dumbarton. Across the street a man relaxes in a lawn chair with a camera on a tripod nearby. The camera is aimed at DSK's front door. For now the shades are still drawn, as they have been since he was arrested in New York.
If DSK does return to Georgetown he will not have a lot of protection from prying eyes. The house is quite public and is adjacent to a park and a children's playground.
The opinion among his Georgetown neighbors (at least among those I've talked to) is that the story is not nearly finished. The charges still stand even if the prosecution's case has been weakened by the accuser's challenged credibility. DSK has a reputation here that dates back to his reported affair with a Georgetown woman.
Note: not that they need another death knell, but the DSK episode has been just one more nail in the coffin of the American media, in all its forms, who jump and think later.
