        Marv Albert bit his girlfriend in the infamous incident at the Ritz Carlton in Pentagon City way back when. That’s also where the Secret Service later interviewed Monica Lewinsky for the first time in relation to the Clinton investigation. We got scandals in Arlington too, not just the political and espionage ones.

          Oops. I thought you wrote that that would be the most risque thing to happen in Arlington, not CCR.

    Puzzle Fest — another innovation from the creative folks at the ArlCo library and step toward making the library a community center for information and activities. Go librarians!

      Yeah, kind of a sick comment. Should be removed.

      • Tabby

        I agree. Not funny or clever.

        • OX4

          There’d be a lot of removed comments around here if those were the criteria for posting.

          • Anton Noosbusch

            haha, so true.

    • Crystal Dykie

      I’m surprised she has internet access.

  • Tonya

    Beautiful photo!

  • KARLington

    It’s a nice photo – and if I am Rustico, I’m wondering what I did to deserve being the photo illustration of a murder guilty verdict, a sexual harassment allegation and a puzzle competition, all of which have nothing to do with my pizza/beer joint.

        I’ve been hanging around here long enough that my brain usually dissociates the pic and the headlines automatically, but sometimes the visual/written juxtaposition is difficult to overcome. Like when I see “murder” and pretty yellow flowers in the same field of vision!
