 Page Through from Before to After

I'm taking a bit of a mental health break today, to try to rest a bit and gird myself for the coming weeks. Not much news anyway, except for this WTOP piece on people being unfamiliar with the neighborhood around the ballpark [insert obligatory "if only there were a web site..." reference here]. Of course, because of this unfamiliarity, chaos will ensue.
And there's Dr. Gridlock's column from Sunday, which along with some good information on disabled access to the ballpark also includes discussions of Scary New Jersey Avenue and the "half-mile" walk from the Navy Yard Station to the ballpark. (Whaa...?)
Also, the Examiner has a summary of Metro's plans for Pope Day, most of which were in the WMATA press release I linked to last week.
And, I guess I need to address this--I've had a number of people ask me in the past few days about rumors apparently circulating that I'm going to shut down JDLand right after Opening Day. Perhaps this is an offshoot from the flippant comment I made in the On Site profile about just making it to Opening Day "and then I'll fall over", or maybe some off-hand crack in the blog about being close to collapsing.
But while it's no secret that right now I'm overwhelmed and teetering on the brink of absolute exhaustion in my quest to keep running the site at the level of detail it's mocked known for, and to respond to all the e-mails and questions I receive every day, I also see the light at the end of the tunnel, and I know that, by May, things around here should settle back down to a more reasonable workload. I'm willing to hang on by my fingernails until then, although I acknowledge that I may miss a link here or there, or might be a bit briefer with some updates than I've been in the past, which I hope everyone can understand. But, beyond that, JDLand will still be around for a good while yet; there's still some developments I have to see arrive at the finish line, after all....
(And yes, there's probably a book in it all someday. After I sleep for a year or so.)

Your tireless efforts are greatly appreciated.
(I knew you wouldnt shut down the site)

Your tireless efforts are appreciated!

Don't worry, we all need a break now and then. You certainly deserve one!


John says: (3/17/08 5:14 PM)
This has been (and continues to be) one of the BEST web sites EVER put on the WWW! In a few days, we will have a new beginning, the one we've all been waiting for all along. Thanks to you, we know every view from every seat, every iron bar's graffitti, every sun seat. Opening Day like no other ever. Thank you.


Brewer says: (3/17/08 8:01 PM)
Hang in there JD! Your site is awesome and no one will mind if you miss a link or two. You're only human after all.


Neal D says: (3/17/08 9:33 PM)
Why are so many people complaining about the walk from the Navy Yard Metro station to the ballpark? We definitely had a longer walk between the Stadium/Armory station and RFK Stadium.

People need to lighten up.

JD, My instinct is that *no one* would begrudge you a nap that lasts as long as you want! We appreciate you and your amazing Web site, but we do not expect the crazy level of service you have provided. Take care of yourself. I know that I would have been astounded if you had only posted half as much. JJ


Tony Corbo says: (3/17/08 9:55 PM)
This has truly been an herculean effort. Bravo, Jackie. The city owes you much credit for keeping this up. We appreciate all that you do.


SE Neighbor says: (3/18/08 7:56 AM)
JD, we "new pioneers" (pre-ballpark agreement) of the Near Southeast can't thank you enough for the time, energy and effort you have poured into this site. I check it daily and can't tell you how many times I've been shocked at morning updates after you spent the entire night before (and sometimes post midnight hours) at one of the mind numbing council or ANC meetings. I wish there was something more we could do for you other than say thanks, but for now, thanks it is.


Jim Taylor says: (3/18/08 9:14 AM)
This site contains so much vital information and saves me so much time in research, I can't thank you eneough for all you do and am glad that after some well deserved rest, you will continue to serve the public with tireless efforts to inform. Thanks a million.


JD says: (3/18/08 10:13 AM)
Thanks, all, for the very kind words and encouragement. I'm now rested up a bit, and ready (I think?) for the final march to Opening Day....

(PS to Tony: I very much appreciate your message, but "Jackie" is grounds for banishment from the site. :-) JD online, Jacqueline in person. A lifelong battle.... )


G St says: (3/18/08 11:16 AM)
OK, break's over! (-:



Tony Corbo says: (3/18/08 12:04 PM)
Sorry, JD. I cannot even imagine what banishment would mean from your site. It has become a daily ritual to visit it.


IMGoph says: (3/20/08 9:29 AM)
thanks for all the manic detail you've put into this, JD. it's much appreciated (and only slightly mocked).
