The Tragedy of the Glass

Glass.jpg Right under the K St NW bridge near the Rock Creek Parkway entry ramp between Foggy Bottom and Georgetown, this large pane of glass sits atop the grass, which has gradually turned brown where the glass blocks rain from watering it but lets the sun dry it out. I can fathom no reason that someone would throw a pane of glass like this off a bridge. It’s unbroken and seems free of major surface flaws. Free window, anyone?

    I suppose if that were a magnifying glass, this would be a fire hazard.
