Saturday Snooze, Sunday Blues

(CLICK TO ENLARGE) Saturday, Sept. 16’s intermittent rain apparently kept one noisy group away from the southeast corner of H and 8th Streets NE. Beyond the traffic noise and between rain drops, things were quiet enough to allow this fellow to catch a snooze in the alley behind the Sports Zone--the store which absorbs the brunt of amplified agitation most Saturdays. The fellow, apparently sufficiently rested, shuffled out of the alley about an hour after this photo was made. (Copyright © 2006. David Klavitter)

Dallas Williams, who preached on the southwest corner of H and 8th Streets NE from about 5-6 p.m. Williams uses employs amplifier in five minute increments during his hour-long sermons. His device points east along H Street. These short bursts of amplification, while bothersome, pale in comparison to one group’s endless ranting for more than four hours nearly every Saturday.
