    The mayor says “there is no threat of Herndon morphing into another Reston.”

    What has the world come to when the mayor of Herndon is talking smack about your town.

    • Wings!!

      If Reston had a Hooters I bet that would shut the mayor of Herndon up.

  • qwerty

    Aw… you do you, Herndon.


    Instead of morphing into another Reston, Herndon is morphing into a barrio in El Paso..

  • Ming the Merciless

    In other news, ResTown fanatics continue to insist that town status stops those dirty developers dead in their tracks…

    While I am very sympathetic to the parents of the little boy hit by the car, and hope the police find the car that hit him, people need to remember that a parking lot is not a playground.

    Also, if you click on the link and see the screen for the video, look at the line at the bottom of the screen — that is the most ill-timed ad placement ever.

    • Hammad Asad

      wow! Really ill-timed ad placement.

  • Mike M

    Mr. Mayor, stay sloppy my friend.
