Yesterday we officially launched our new discussion forums section — a message board where the conversation isn’t limited to the articles we publish.

Here are a few of the interesting items posted in the past 24 hours.

  • South Arlington

    Since this is a pretty general posting by Arlnow, I figured I may as well ask. What happened to mehoo, formerly the most prolific Arlnow comment poster? I had assumed dynaroo was just mehoo with a different name but it doesn’t appear that’s the case. Also, I have to say KEV’s prolific gear grinding (I’m pretty sure that’s all KEV is trying for) today of dynaroo has been hilarious.

      Having a conscience does put you at an initial disadvantage.

    • KalashniKEV

      I gave mehoo a job in my office. He’s my chai boy. I might let him use the computer again next month on his 14th birthday, but only for an hour.

        He’s very busy today… it’s Khamis (Thursday).

    I’m surprised that Arlington County allows pit bulls and also the adoption of them. After what happened in Montgomery County, MD some years ago with a work at the shelter being savagely attacked and sustaining life threatening injuries, they banned the adoption of pit bulls.

    • Carol,
      In that particular situation an animal behavorist had evaluated that dog and said that it needed to be euthanized immediately. I don’t remember all of the details but I believe the staff worker had made a mistake and the dog took full advantage of it and that’s how this horrible situation took place. Also, please know that pitties were once known as the nanny dog – it depends how you raise them just like children. The old adage is ‘there are no bad dogs, just bad owners.’
