You never know what you’ll see when walking down Pennsylvania Ave. while approaching the White House. After the recent fence jumper, TV newscasters reported a new fence farther out on the north side where most tourists gather.
Tuesday morning, it was the usual scene. Lots of tourists, a protest about who knows what and the ongoing fence replacement with a temporary fence in front of the work area. There were several small black metal barricades by the temporary fence, but it was no big deal.
There has been a lot of talk about moving tourists back or even worse a screening area that would be a royal pain. If this is the solution, that’s fine. But, the public needs to see the White House up close. The Secret Service needs better training to ensure everyone’s safety.
