    Thanks for posting this – always fun to read.

    On a similar note, do you know where the Crime Report (as well as Real Estate transactions) that used to be in the Washington Post Local Living section on Thursday’s has gone?

    • The Dope of South Arlington

      It hasn’t gone anywhere, it’s still there.

  • mehoo

    All the real estate transactions have been moved to the foreclosure pages.

  • rick

    rumor has it these 4 youts were the ones responsible for the robbery at the apple store a few weeks ago, which explains their very classy plywood door

    • That would be nice if it were same idiots…

      • “the” same idiots, sorry, I haven’t drank my 31oz Starbucks.

        From “My Cousin Vinny” (1992)

        Vinny Gambini: It is possible that the two yutes…
        Judge Chamberlain Haller: …Ah, the two what? Uh… uh, what was that word?
        Vinny Gambini: Uh… what word?
        Judge Chamberlain Haller: Two what?
        Vinny Gambini: What?
        Judge Chamberlain Haller: Uh… did you say ‘yutes’?
        Vinny Gambini: Yeah, two yutes.
        Judge Chamberlain Haller: What is a yute?
        [beat]
        Vinny Gambini: Oh, excuse me, your honor…
        [exaggerated]

    Sounds like word has gotten out to DC thugs that Arlington (Ballston to Rosslyn) is easy pickings for crime. Getting to be time to set up a neighborhood watch. I’ll bring the beer.

    A “caper” I guess, but it is frightening that our relatively crime free neighborhood is no more due to “progress.” This includes regular breakins, more assaults and a few murders. Electronic stores, a plethora of bars and much more activity are attracting a criminal element. The County, of course, wants to hush this up. Before the Apple store, the site was a Sears parking lot upon which nary a crime occured. Where are we headed?
