On The YouTubes: We Watch The Reston Association Videos So You Don't Have To

As we begin this monthly edition of fancy video news from the Reston Association, we're relieved to see that dulcet-toned Andy Sigle is wearing appropriate protective eyewear and a reflective vest as he stands a precarious five feet away from the edge of the Great Hole of Reston. "Construction is well under way," Sigle explains, as he doesn't step dangerously close to the precipice. As the construction superintendent rattles off the latest Fun Facts about the massive Reston Station project -- 1.1 million hours of employment! 35,000 truckloads of dirt! 10,000 cubic yards of concrete! 1.8 million pounds of rebar! -- we notice that the lowest concentric ring level of the parking garage is partially under roof. Looks like a long way down.

"Election season is in the air," Sigle intones ominously, alluding to the fact that next year Reston voters will elect three new members of the Reston Association Board of Directors. Which means it's time for us to check the box that the Blogger machine came in for the instruction manual that tells us how to turn off the commenting on this here "web log." We think it's the knob right next to the vertical hold.

Finally, we learn something about "Neighborwoods Month," which has to do with trees and weeds and whatnot, which seems like the perfect time for us to wrap up our time on the Reston-themed YouTubes and watch something more constructive, the end.
