Santa Puts Me Back in the News

Who’d have thought writing about getting yelled at by the National Santa’s elves would land me back in the local news? This time, my WeLoveDC entry complaining about being stopped from photographing Santa’s Workshop at the National Christmas Tree got picked up in NBC Washington’s Around Town section.

(Cue, of course, the requisite “WELL PEOPLE WHO TAKE PHOTOS WHICH HAPPEN TO HAVE CHILDREN IN THEM ARE CREEPY TERRORIST PERVERTS” commenters. I don’t ask to get pulled into these rights arguments; I just want to snap a nice amateur photo without being harassed by security-theater-obsessed bullies.)
