    Went there for the first time since they started the paid parking because I was giving blood. Boy was it a hassle. Definitely not going back except to give blood.

    • The Constitutionalist

      You should give blood at the Inova in Sterling. Only a few minutes away and you don’t have to pay to park.

        That’s a bit out of my way on a work day. Plus, they do validate your parking.

        • Why do you bother?

          There’s a bigger picture here. Read some.

    • Conservative Senior

      You can donate blood at St. Thomas a Becket Church on Wiehle Ave. Parking is free

  • Why do you bother?

    So, BP’s taking it in the wallet. Not enough, but a good start.

    • Jenny Gibbers

      Owen Thomas is a turnaround specialist, his specialty are failing companies. He will turn this ship around, no doubt in my mind. Stay positive, buy BXP – it looks compelling.
