    Boston already owns the “Hub” moniker. Try again.

    17Fifty… what an original name.

    How about $2AnHourBeyotch… or $2BecauseEffYou…

      I’m curious who told you that your opinion on every.single.article published on Reston Now mattered a whit to anyone?

      • Chuck Morningwood

        Why would you think that anyone would give a whit about your opinion either?

      • Ming the Merciless

        Everyone is entitled to my opinion.

        Even people with crappy degrees from fourth-rate universities.

        TD, MtM and CM:
        While I support your opportunity to be heard in this forum; I do not necessarily agree with any of your opinions.
        That being said: tremendous respect to all three of you for using your Legal Names as your monikers.

    Herbicide?… what about the turtle, fish, birds,….and plants that need to be eaten by the wildlife?

    • Karen Goff

      RA says it is not harmful to animals.

  • Chuck Morningwood

    If you build it, I won’t come …at least as long as you’re charging for parking anyway.
