Metro Station Saw Long Lines for Women’s March — Many attendees of the Women’s March on Washington this past weekend took the Silver Line to get to D.C., and that resulted in some massive crowds at the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station. Photos shared on social media showed the huge turnout Saturday morning. [Patch]

Volunteer Group Prepping for Future Disasters — Every part of Fairfax County will soon have its own Community Resiliency Group, which would be activated to help recover from disasters such as floods, earthquakes or chemical spills. Nearly 200 people have registered to be part of the volunteer group in the Hunter Mill District, and many participated in a Volunteer Fairfax/Fairfax County Office of Emergency Management seminar earlier this month to learn more.

Motorcycle Crash in Sterling Leads to Reston Man’s Arrest — James E. Basham, 30, of Reston, was charged with driving under the influence and carrying a firearm while intoxicated. [Loudoun Times-Mirror]

    I didn’t get to the Wiehle-Reston station until around 11:30. We got to go right in because we already had fare cards. But the people who sat in front of us said they had been waiting for 2 hours to get a fare card.

      Here’s what should have tipped you off:
      A pussyhat turned backwards becomes an arse hat. You didn’t have to participate. You chose to. And you repeated that choice with every passing minute as you chose to wait in line.

        It’s very bold of you to call those backwards people who won’t support pussy hats “arse hats”, but maybe they were working Saturday?

        Also, did you miss that Mookie didn’t wait in line?

        • Mike M

          My point was the those hats are one in the same. Many, many obviously waited in line. Thanks for the opportunity to clarify for those like you.

            I also don’t think people are supposed to be called broads any more, but I sincerely respect your enthusiasm.

    • Guest

      Much like last 4th of July! Any large event downtown leads to lines at the card machines.

  • Chuck Morningwood

    Drinking, riding/crashing and armed. He’s lucky to have only gotten arrested.

      Man named Jim E. Basham crashed a vehicle? That’s practically intent.
