Went out early on Saturday morning to get some cards and bills into the mailbox ahead of the only pickup that will occur until Monday (for some reason there are no Saturday afternoon pickups at any of the mailboxes in this neighborhood) and right where Spencer Alley gives out onto 16th Street a lamentable sight met my unprepared eyes. Overnight, some Friday reveler saw fit to rip a large branch off the ficus tree that does its best to grow here among unpredictable humans.
