    Found fast, but I posted much slower. Calvinball has been removed from the lair of the 14th Street Bridge trolls!

    Calvinball is now at the highest spot in Arlington County. Major Hill, it is not. If you ascend the Williamsburg Soulsucker segment, you will be very close. Or you may approach from the top of the popular bike road named for Virginia’s indigenous people.

    And while the Union troops enjoyed a wonderful vantage over much of the Commonwealth from this spot, this site’s intrinsic aesthetic beauty leaves something to be desired. Your goal lies at the foot of a “No Trespassing” sign, near the chain link fence. Careful of the cat vine!

    Once again, this clue does not resemble a haiku.

    It took pilgrims less than a day to find his humongous um ball and therefore he gets all 5 points.
    Tim the Enchanter likes SteveO's creativity. 2 extra points.
    SteveO is awarded 12 points.
    All praise to Tim the Enchanter. No disrespect, but one wonders about thy math.
    10 points + 5 points + 2 points = 17 points

    If the rules can change, so can the math.

    DARE THEE QUESTION TIM?!?!?? My spreadsheets are mystical. They have been concocted with 12 souls of unemployed english majors. I use the finest eye of newt imported from newark!!!

    (oops. Couple of scoring errors. I see it. Will fix the algorithims. This is why nothing should be left to AI).

    As for ordinances, well... we all know the prob of regs that lack enforcement clauses. Good ordinance are if / then statements.

    REVISED SCORES
    CBGanimal was cheated out of 5 points by the Russians. Her revised score is 22

    SteveO was also cheated out of 5 points. But SteveO dared to question Tim’s math. Therefore SteveO loses 13 points. His revised score is reduced to 17.

    Let all who follow this path tremble and know that there is a really really really bad price to pay for questioning Tim the Enchanter.
