Business as usual around White House

White House

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.
