Wright Gate Reopening — Fort Myer’s Wright Gate, used by local bicyclists and pedestrians, will reopen on Monday. The gate, located at N. Meade Street and Marshall Drive, closed for repairs in March. Starting Monday, it will be open from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily. Henry Gate, at Arlington Blvd and Pershing Drive, will revert to its normal hours: 6:00 to 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.

State Senate Race Could Get Interesting — Could a well-funded Republican candidate defeat a Democrat this fall in the race for Arlington’s newly-redrawn 31st state Senate district? Sun Gazette Editor Scott McCaffrey thinks so. [Sun Gazette]

    When somebody continues to poke you unwantingly in a confined spaced with an erection, there is a simple way to make it stop. Grab it and twist.

    If this is true, it is sick. I wonder if it is possible that because it was so crowded she just felt a large ring of keys in the guys pocket? (Are those your keys, or are you happy to see me?)

    I don’t know why McCaffrey thinks the Reep has to be ‘well-funded’ – think about David Foster. He wouldn’t lose badly in Arlington – many Arlington people would see him as a familiar face, and have recently voted for him for School Board. The new 31st has some of the less overwhelmingly Demmie precincts in Arlington, and he can point to statewide perspective from his service on the State Board of Education when introducing himself to Loudon voters.

    Metro Transit Police have already released a sketch of the suspect.

      Obviously not Chris Zimmerman, his flip flops aren’t brown

    • JamesE

      We had a life size cardboard cutout of him in school, I miss it dearly.

    • They got a picture of the suspect from a video camera at a local bowling alley.

    • You be the judge.

    Well, at least there’s no rain in this 5K Friday forecast!

    Tracksuit? Gold chain? How much more stereotypical could this get?

    • Rick

      you should file a complaint

      • CW

        No, I mean that is the legitimate description from the actual victim on the unsuck metro site. I just can’t believe that someone who is going to act like a perv actually dresses the part in the most stereotypical way possible!

  • Regarding Wright Gate, I pass it often as a couple times a week I like to park around Iwo Jima and walk around that area and the trails around the cemetary.. I often see “wright gate” and say to myself, you know they should just rename this “wrong gate” being that you cant into Ft. Myer that way, I wonder how long it’s been closed? That area of Meade and Marshall to me seems to be the nicest or one of the nicer spots of Arlington. ‘Photo: Jeff Costlow/NoVaPJ’
