Flashback Monday: Truth in Advertising

DRB protest copy.jpg
Set the controls of the Earth-Toned Wayback Machine to the late 1980s, when this T-shirt was apparently the brainchild of a DRB protest of some kind or another, according to our BFFs in the Facebook group Reston, Remember When. Back before Reston singlehandedly won the Cold War, we can't think of a better combination of Soviet iconography and planned community land use regulations, except maybe for this, the end.


  1.'re making me all nostalgic for life in the Gulag! I'm still here, and I wish I still had that tee shirt... Holy is the name of the dear comrade from whom I bought it...

  2. Slava Ministerstvu Mauvskixh Dyel!

    (Glory to the Ministry of Mauve Matters!)

  3. We need our Reston's own version of Pussy Riot!

    1. I don't know about Pussy Riot, but if you head over to Cocquina, you might find a Poota Riot.

    2. The last thing Reston needs is its own version of Pussy Riot. As fans of Andrea Dworkin, Pussy Riot have signed on to an ideology even more irrational and totalitarian than Soviet communism.
