      It pains me to read that people are suggesting that Moira Bagley beat the Post to the story on H Street NE. Indeed Fritz Hahn’s Weekend section article appeared after Bagley’s, but he’s written a bunch of other pieces on H Street NE before this over the past year. He’s had his ear to the ground on this well before Moira knew that there was an H Street NE. If any credit should be given, it should be given to the neighborhood blogger frozentropics.blogspot.com. She’s done a great job following H Street NE.
