    Anyone voting for Reston’s parade obviously did not attend this year’s parade. It was so boring people with children left long before Santa arrived.

    Yes! Please cancel the rest of the Silver Line. No reason to throw more good money after bad. NOVA tax payers will be subsidizing Jerry Connolly’s baby FOREVER as suburban rail can never cover its operational expenses.
