This time its Nationals' manager Manny Acta who's traveled down South Capitol Street for a visit to the new ballpark, says MLB.com. "Acta was most intrigued by the Nationals' locker room, which is 10 times bigger than the one at Robert F. Kennedy Stadium. He said the locker room reminded him of the Astros' at Minute Maid Park. But Acta was most surprised when Stromph told him that every player would have Internet access in their lockers." We'll see if we can set those up to have jdland.com as their home page.

Yesterday morning, after traipsing down to check on the progress of the GPO building's demolition at The Yards, I took a fair number of pictures along Third and Fourth streets in the Capper/Capitol Quarter areas, since it was a gorgeous day and because it had been a while since I updated those photos in my Photo Archive. Here's the complete batch of yesterday's pictures, all on one page--it's mainly photos of a bunch of empty lots, but you can click on the icon under any image to see earlier photos from the same vantage point. There's also some shots of the GPO building, though they didn't seem to be doing any demo work yesterday.
(If you've come to JDLand fairly recently and aren't familiar with my Photo Archive, go give it a spin. You can choose any intersection in Near Southeast and see all the photos I've posted of that location over the past getting-close-to-five-years. And the icon you see on my project pages will show you the archive photos for the vantage point you're looking at. If you're needing to waste a couple of hours, this is the application for you!)
 

In the flurry of content last week, I forgot to post this article in the Washington City Paper about the issue of filing jobs during the construction of the new Nationals ballpark with city workers versus residents of the surrounding states.
