Today a Georgetown realtor, Nancy Taylor-Bubes, distributed American flags to every doorstep/doorknob in the village. That could be how one ended up planted in the small patch of garden fronting the Dumbarton Street home of sexual assault defendant Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Only there's no evidence DSK put it there. In fact, there's no evidence he has returned to his Georgetown home since he was freed from house arrest in New York yesterday. I'm not so sure he's terribly enamored with America right now.
At 2 p.m. today he was apparently observed getting into a black Mercedes in New York. Could he be coming to DC? Only he and those close to him would know. (I'd go to the Hamptons and hide out in some rich bro's oceanside villa.) But just in case he does return to Georgetown, there is a media scrum building on Dumbarton, a protective "stake out." (Later reports indicated he departed and then returned to his NYC home.)
There's no sign of life at the house, other than the little flag gently blowing in the breeze. Across the street the church was having a lively weekend family barbecue with music and a moon-bounce. The parishioners didn't seem to notice or care about the hubbub on their usually quiet street.
