Truxton Circle isn't a circle anymore but it would still like a little respect. A profile in the Post covers how it is a transitioning neighborhood that is bootstrapping its own way up in this city. In the not-too-distant past it was a place that only the brave or drug-seeking would venture into after dark, but in the past decade or so it has cleaned up its street corners and is now a desirable place to live. There are also some residents who think it is high time the neighborhood change its name to reflect its place in history. [WaPo]
