The Tourons are out so it must be summer
DC is a place of order and courtesy, civilized people leading civilized lives. Then come the Tourons. Touron is short for Tourist Moron. Take the Metro for instance like 700,000 of us do every day. Quiet, clean and orderly until the Tourons arrive and then it is children swinging from the poles screaming. Escalators have a simple rule stand to the right and walk to the left. I have never seen it posted but it is just something everyone knows, everyone except the Tourons. DC is one of the most livable cities in the world because most of us follow the unwritten rules.
Still we love them since without the Tourons and all they come to see we would be boring, that and they spend like crazy. After 911 they stopped coming for awhile and this town suffered. So what can I say but, “ Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses and let them drive us crazy here in civilization.”
