From the Primordial Ooze, A Mighty Canyon Grows


One of those fancy "twit terers" the kids are all crazy about these days with an uncannily familiar name -- but a far fancier cell phone -- shared this exciting photo from the Wiehle Avenue park and ride lot, suggesting that site plans have been filed for the Comstock Wiehle Metro development, or maybe just the garage, and work may begin at some point soon(ish). Keep your eyes peeled for fanciful concrete bollards -- we hear they multiply like rabbits once released into the wild.


  1. By this time next year we'll be talking about needing a "Bollard Management" program. Sould be pretty easy to pick them off though, they don't look like they move very fast. With a little luck, we'll be able to club them like baby seals. Sweet.

  2. I am less concerned about managing our free-ranging bollards than I am about the completely untamed bollocks that are sure to be attracted to that location. They seem to thrive on the the best laid plans of mice and men.

  3. Free-range bollards? Roast with sage stuffing. Yum!

    We'd need some stone-piercing arrows to hurt those bollards. Free-range bollards will roll over bike riders to Metro when angry. Maybe we just should equip the RA staff with sledge hammers. Or approve bollard hunting.

    Yes we can get a new DRB-approved hunting target.
