    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.

    With apologies to anyone for whom this is too far off topic, but what is the difference between the intended mission of something like a Crystal City BID and a CPRO? I think it is cool that Crystal...

    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.

    Thanks. It might be worth improving the signage from the metro.

    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.
