    On Saturday or Sunday a car went off Sunrise Valley at Barton Hill, crossed a busy sidewalk, and clobbered the under-utilized RA tennis court property. Any word on what caused that? Texting and speeding? Seizure? Really bad ISIS attack? People do fly around that curve. A bicyclist was sent into a coma there not so long ago. (There was no follow-up on that.)

    My bet? Texting. It’s rampant and seems worse in Reston for some reason.

    • The education of Mike M

      Lets not fall for “sentenced by the media”, life is too precious to be gambled away by knee jerk judgement calls.

      Sometimes it takes a whole village…

      • Mike M

        I don’t need the media to tell me what I see. But I’d like the media to let me know what happened in this case, if possible.

        Do you have any information with which to educate? (Or just off-target, point blank, sanctimonious scolding?)

        • The education of Mike M

          Before I answer your question let me ask; can you answer yourself?

          • Mike M


            Your turn.

          • The education of Mike M

            For the record its Dhaka not Khaka. Its parliament was built by an American, Louis Kahn. Its GDP hovers around 37 billion.

            With respect to the accident; thats your neighborhood so we know less than you do. My guess you can provide updates.

          • Mike M

            1) Not my neighborhood.
            2) If I knew I wouldn’t ask.
            3) Up your meds,freak,

        I don’t understand why you seem of have a problem with someone commenting on a story and theorizing what happened. Isn’t that what comments sections for?

    Can you two get a room or something? What the hell are you even arguing about?
