DeEvening Links: Shaky pictures

After the reviewing the above video, all in all, I’m glad to have experienced the Aug. 23 earthquake while lunching at P.J. Clarke’s rather than while sightseeing atop the Washington Monument. Its effects linger: The Post’s Michael Ruane reports that the National Park Service is pondering how to fix the monument’s damaged elevator system, and it’s bringing in a park ranger versed in Alaskan mountaineering to rappel down the sides of the monument to help find further damage.
