THE FRONT PORTICO OF THE FOUR SEASONS HOTEL ON A RANDOM NIGHT
Over the last week a few people stopped me to ask, "what in the hell was going on outside the Four Seasons the other night?" And then they went on to talk about M Street being closed, a massive presence of police cars and EMT, a stopped bus, and lots of drama. I had no idea. There was no clue. But now the mystery is solved. Please read this email from a (tall, handsome, media/business mogul) friend, aka John Fox Sullivan of Atlantic Media and also mayor of Little Washington, Virginia.
"A freakish one in a million (billion) event happened to me 6:30 Thursday night on way to dinner with Lockheed folks. Am walking on M street near 4 Seasons, a car goes out of control, runs up on to sidewalk where I am standing, crashes into metal lamp post between me and car. Post hits metal box which hits my ankle and I am off to GW emergency room.
"The bad news, 21 stitches in ankle and very immobile. The good news, no damage to Achilles' tendon. The really good news, lamp post prevented car from making me a permanent hood ornament.Am (at home) recuperating. Not sure when I will be mobile and in office but email and phone available. Feeling lucky to be alive.
"Ps. If you got caught up in massive rush hour backup in Georgetown Thursday evening (fire trucks, ambulance, cops galore.. I apologize"
