Delegate Norton Six Kinds of Pissed at Union Station

ehn.png There’s a lot of people you don’t want to make angry. Anyone who has Guido & Nails on their staff, Jose Canseco, Bill Clinton, The Ghost of LBJ, Bruce Banner, and now, please add to the list Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, who went postal all over LaSalle, who manage Union Station and have tried to declare the building as private property to enforce some peculiar security rules. This quote is via Joel Lawson and Lightbox DC:

“I’m astounded that Union Station would be declared private property, when we [Congress] issued the lease…” “…We’re going to have hearings,” Norton warned, “because it’s going to be us, the Congress, or it’s going to be the courts. Somebody is going to sue, straight out, and I can tell you that the Supreme Court precedents are as clear as water on this.”

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Delegate Norton for getting up yesterday with a whole sack of angry that needed to be unleashed.

    I know, right? She’s all, "You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry."

    However, this should no end at the discussion and lame excuses developers and property "owners" have… as photographic rights have been challenged all over the US and elsewhere, a larger examination of those issues should be undertaken. Anywhere from vacation photography, art-based, or just casual press and documentarian style… don’t make this a one-time issue that is narrowly defined (albeit, setting a precedent for other cases to build upon).

    I think some work in Photoshop to do a little "Hulk Smash" action would have been possibly warranted here…
