    Tell me again why you don’t take the opportunity to use a picture that relates to one of your Morning Notes? It not only seems lazy, but you miss an opportunity to add something relevant and interesting to these articles. How about a picture of the women convicted of raising money for al-Shabab? Or a picture of the local law enforcement officers lip syncing? I mean, that picture of a crane is not interesting in any objective manner. Lazy, lazy, lazy

        Genius, sir, pure genius!

        • sir [sic]

          How do you know 30yearsinReston is a male? Just based on your “genius” comment it is by most likelihood a woman we are dealing with, also with respect to the appreciation of the arts…

          Perhaps rethink your gender-biased stance. Also, assuming no sarcasm at play – Sir is spelled with a capital S in all cases.

          • Mike M

            Thank you, ma’am.
            I think he’s a sir.

          • 30yearsinreston

            I am not a TQ

          • Mike M

            I was “ma’aming” sir sick. No doubt a militant feminist.
            As for you, might you be an L trapped in a man’s body?

          • 30yearsinreston

            I think I’m going to zzzzz

          • Why do you bother?

            ??

          • Why do you bother?

            Men don’t appreciate the arts? Whose gender bias is showing, now?

    • Why do you bother?

      Seriously – with all of the quality problems in this publication you’re picking on the photo selection??? RN has never asserted that the photos are intended to match any specific section or story.

        Brother let me tell ya. There was once a time . . .

  • Mike M

    Tragic to see some of our vibrancy turn to supporting indiscriminate mass murder back in the old country.

    Also tragic to see that the school resource officer program has been politicized and racialized. Inefficiencies and ineffectiveness is sure to follow. Thanks, Left!

    • Why do you bother?

      “Tragic to see some of our vibrancy turn to supporting indiscriminate mass murder back in the old country.”

      WTH are you talking about???

      • Mike M

        “convictions and prison sentences of two women,
        including a Reston resident, for using an internet chat room to raise
        money for al-Shabab, a Somali militant group.”

        Playing dumb, are we?

  • Drip

    RestonNow… Can you please call Ken Plum and other local leaders and ask if they will support the call from Virginia Republicans (seemingly supported by Barbara Comstock, and others) for potential legal action in light of the Metro union’s vote to authorize a strike? This is an issue that is of great importance to Reston/Herndon, yet crickets at the hyperlocal level. I realize I’m asking for some real journalism, but thought I’d ask.

    • 30yearsinreston

      Mr speaker, is to busy kissing butt in Richmond in his quest for promotion to Mr Speaker to do anything for Reston

      • Greg

        Ken Plum probably is down there (the swamp) encouraging them to strike!

  • Mike M

    See you race in “brother?”
    Who is the racist?
