    Hooray for FCPD. There are alot of mentally ill people in the Reston area, all of whom probably appreciate that the police will be better trained in how to deal effectively with their condition.

    Bas Brukx ought to get an award simply for his extra cool name. He ought to trade mark that thing.

    I kind of hope Reston doesn’t get too much more light. Living in Falls Church for a decade, I was always a bit sad when I looked up and saw no stars. I came to visit a friend one night in Herndon and on the drive home I saw stars while driving through Reston. One of reasons I moved to this area.
