If There's No One To Take A Selfie at RTC, Does That Make It A 'Lonie'?

Please to be enjoying this cellular telephone photo from the busy lunch rush at our favorite fake downtown "stressful city-like shopping center" "texted," or maybe "Snapchatted," to us by a Confidential Restonian Operative. Sure looks like all that recent unpleasantness about paid parking has finally died down and normalcy restored to our vibrant commercial hub. Let's step back and check out all the vibrancy!


You may not have to wait in line for that classic RTC selfie replicating a smartphone app people actually want to use -- but don't try taking any other photos. Just ask the teevee news crew that recently got busted by RTC's ever-vigilant Parking Brigade, in keeping with longstanding policy at our favorite ersatz third place.

The crisis managers couldn't buy better publicity. We're still not sure why the local Action McNews Team from Hagerstown, Maryland, decided to do a story about paid parking in Reston, but after RTC owner Boston Properties got embarrassed by a question about the pushback against paid parking at RTC during a Wall Street earnings call a few weeks back, we guess word got around or something.

The concept of "embedding" "video" hasn't quite made it to Hagerstown just yet (they'll get it shortly after color tevee maybe?), but you can watch the Action McNews crew getting busted at the link here.

    The failing mainstream Hagerstown media is LYING! No company has ever been treated so VERY UNFAIRLY as Boston Properties! SAD!!!
