This and That: A Random Moonwalk Through Reston News

  • Hey now, Aldrin Elementary namesake Buzz Aldrin came by the school to speak to kids yesterday, and maybe brought a chunk of cheese from the moon for the kids to enjoy. Suck on that, Armstrong! In return, the kids had to do this "moon dance," starring noted NASA astronaut Snoop Dogg:

  • Saturday's going to be an exciting day in Reston! First, swing by the community yard sale to pick up some moldy vintage clothing, then meet at the basketball courts off Hunting Horn Lane for a walk through "Reaches" 5 and 6 of the Glade stream deforestation restoration project.

  • A Reston resident pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in Prince William Circuit Court on last week, the result of a crash back in February.

  • The ongoing feud between Reston Hospital Center parent HCA and Inova continues. After HCA's plans to build a hospital in particleboard hellhole Broadlands got rejected by Loudoun County, it said it would expand Reston Hospital Center, just to show them! Now it's proposing to build a hospital on Rt. 50 in Loudoun, and Inova is pissed. Syringe fight in 3, 2, 1...

  • A 17-year-old girl was sexually assaulted while jogging on the trail along Fairfax County Parkway in Franklin Farms Wednesday evening. The suspect was described as white, in his 30s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, and wearing all black.

  • The Post finally got around to reviewing Reston Town Center burger nirvana The Counter. The takeaway: the reviewer was overwhelmed by all those crazy toppings!

  • Last month's town hall meeting continues to be the gift that keeps on giving! Several alert readers pointed out that the shenanigans caught the attention of the fancy elitist British magazine The Economist. Here's what they said: "Outside a town-hall meeting in Reston, Virginia, last week, a few buffoons likened Barack Obama to Hitler. But most of the protesters are sane." Hilarious, but we're more shocked that people who read this filthy "web-log" would also read The Economist, which uses lots of big words and eschews phrases like "awesome." Also, the ACLU is allegedly interested in representing the Right-Thinking Patriot whose rights were brutally suppressed by that jackbooted thug, the school security officer, the end.


  1. Damn, Doc Rendesvouz is a dope ass ill motherfucker. All you need is the rocket experience word!

  2. Het Restonian! Why don't you even mention Reston Triathlon in your "reston news"? It's a great even with 700 participants, and it's one of the few times a year when people actually allowed swimming in Lake Audubon without risking being put away for life. Highly recommended :)

  3. i agree, anonymous poster above me - not even one post about cyclists clogging up the road while reston fatties go out looking for their Sunday morning Egg McMuffin

  4. I resent the above comment. I volunteered for this event, while eating an Egg McMuffin. And a hashbrown.
