Some may read this and think that the issue of lack of quality Ward 8 businesses (such as grocery stores and restaurants) is a separate issue from that of Ward 8's perception but I disagree. If Ward 8's food gap is a 'failing of the District' then this type of disregard for an entire section of the District -- our nation's capital -- should be a failing of our sense of humanity . It makes me wonder are we really "one city" when all it takes is the anonymity of a screen name to show how we really feel?
