Confidential Twitter Operative "Allison" shared this propaganda leaflet she received at the Wiehle Metro station, reminding us that our favorite E-ticket ride to the wonders of Tysons and the mysterious lands inside the Beltway is celebrating its first birthday. Wow, it seems like only yesterday that we met a fun robot and took our first ride downtown!
We're still waiting for our house to double in value, and even though we pay more than anyone else to ride the rails, we think the Silver Line's been a Good Thing for our beloved earth-toned community, fistfights notwtihstanding, except maybe for those times we need to drive, um, pretty much anywhere during rush hour. Thanks, Loudoun cut-through commuters!
To celebrate the anniversary, Metro is holding a birthday celebration on Sunday, complete with a showing of a movie called Despicable Me, which stars a bunch of bumbling underlings who, despite their best intentions, can't quite seem to get things right. What does that remind us of?
