    What ever happened to the bs attempt by the county to grab the fund raising money from the friends of Reston library and confiscate into their black hole of bureaucracy?

      I believe someone held up crosses in the faces of Counts Hudgins and Bulova. The Counts gasped and shrieked as they flew back into the darkness.

      Happy Halloween.
