Now that we know more about the mistaken evacuation in Columbia Heights, and understand better the artistic concepts behind the campaign, I wonder if anyone has changed their minds about the incident. Residents, students, and workers who has to evacuate the area that day were understandably frustrated, much less scared by the potential threat. And yet, unlike the bomb scare in Boston in 2007, it seems to me like even more of a stretch for anyone to consider these art instalations a threat.
Have those effected by the evacuation two weeks changed their minds about the incident since we have learned more? I’d like to learn otherwise, especially because I wasn’t as impacted as anyone in the area was that day.
This is an open thread.
