Oh K


Here’s a tour of Washington, D.C.’s K Street–famous as the address of America’s top lobbying firms. The funny thing about K Street is that it’s so dull. No tourist would want to see it: Just a bunch of nondescript office buildings. The commentator on this video is Philip Kennicott of the Washington Post. He makes a few uninteresting and lefty political points about suppression of political dissent–he seems to think that K Street should look like a college campus, with bright-yellow leaflets advertising anti-war rallies on the Mall covering every signpost. But his bottom-line point is true: K Street is the most famous boring street in America.
