Editor's Notebook: Human Remains, Food Trucks and More

A look at a few of the most notable stories this week on Georgetown Patch.

Human Remains Found During Construction on Q Street

Human remains were discovered beneath a home on the 3300 block of Q Street in Georgetown Monday. The home is currently under construction and contractors contacted police when they discovered the remains. Officers from the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) were investigating the finding Monday afternoon and told Patch at the time that there was nothing to worry about from a safety perspective. Patch has new details, but you will have to read our Monday newsletter to find out!

Food Trucks: Trendy or Tacky?

Our article on the TaKorean food truck that was parked on K Street during lunch generated a healthy debate in the comments.

One commenter felt food trucks were a trend that needs to go. She wrote, "These mobile businesses, like vendor trucks along Constitution Avenue, cheapen the appearance of the city. Why not let these entrepreneurs open storefronts and compete fairly with businesses that have made a permanent investment in the city?"

Another opined that food trucks on K Street might be a good thing for foot traffic in the area. "We built this huge Waterfront Park, but there's nowhere to get food down there. If we had food trucks on K Street, maybe more people would use the Waterfront Park," he wrote.
