By the way, today is ARLnow’s 12th anniversary: on this date in 2010 ARLnow started publishing. Time flies!

Now, here are the most-read articles of the past week:

  1. Two arrested after incorrect order leads to violence at local McDonald’s
  2. Predatory towing targeted under new bill inspired by Advanced Towing case
  3. These are the best-designed edifices in Arlington, according to the county
