There is no longer any reason for anyone to travel to Washington, DC for visiting bars. We have enough fine places here in Montgomery County. Stay here, spend your money here. And you will be closer to home.

What's your point? Maybe he had a friend in or close to DC and decided to go to him/her instead of the friend visiting him in Clarksburg, which last time I checked doesn't really have much of a "nightlife", even though I know there are places closer to Clarksburg he could've gone. He fell down a ventilation shaft at an apartment complex. So, that really doesn't have much to do with the bars there but the living areas. Also, being closer to home doesn't seem to have much to do with it either since it wasn't like he had his accident on his way home or anything. Just a strange comment considering the circumstances had nothing to do with traveling.
