I've been watching, somewhat confusedly, the recent argument on the North Columbia Heights Civic Association listserve. Apparently Jeff Zeeman, president of the group, posted about a spring cleanup, and then a few folks started complaining that they aren't having meetings or elections. Zeeman responded that nobody ever expressed any interest, and it went downhill from there.
Read here if you'd like to see the descent into craziness. One woman suggests they go have a cup of coffee and discuss their differences, but that doesn't seem to help. ANC commish William Jordan gets into the mix as well.
