News and notes from Reston (tm).

Oh, the humanity!

Lake Anne Chevron, which was out of business for more than a year after a drugged-out driver hit the building and started a massive fire that attracted more TV station helicopters than a remake of the beach scene in Apocalypse Now, has suffered yet another insurmountable blow. Below is a picture of the carnage, but be warned -- it ain't pretty. We'd suggest getting anyone under the age of 17 or over the age of 63 out of the room before scrolling down, because the uncensored scene of raw destruction depicted below will shock and offend just about everyone who believes in Reston's core principles of truth, justice, and the mauve-colored way.

Okay. Everyone with delicate constitutions out of the room?

Don't say we didn't warn you... here goes.

There are no words.

Actually, the whole thing kind of sucks, because the accident happened in front of two other drivers who, like the driver of the "big box" style truck, drove off without notifying anyone.

Kapoor hoped to present the perpetrator’s credit card number, but the officer told him that privacy laws preclude him from pursuing anyone based on a credit card number. Kapoor said he received the same answer when he tried to send the credit card number to the oil company.
Just like in one of those buddy movies starring a wisecracking Cop on the Edge and his long-suffering parter who's got one more week to go until he retires and is Getting Too Old For This, those paper-pushing bureaucrats are actually helping the criminals! Maybe once Chuck Norris is finished shilling for Mike Huckabee, we can get him down here for some Texas-style justice.
