    Is there a date by which it is recommended that people write? (Sorry if I missed it.) I wrote, but am trying to encourage others to do the same.

    On a related note, am I the only one who consistently has a wobbly seat which quickly falls to the bottom of the post and which I am unable to tighten? This seems to occur with increasing frequency.

    I'm sure I'm stating the obvious, but consider metroing out to Wiehle-Reston, at least one way, to cut off what you see too much of. It's a pretty fast trip from Arlington.
