HeraldTrib TODAY: Oct. 24, 2007

"Meet-n-Greet" Turnout "astounds"; MickeyD's; Police Notes

We had another great “Meet-n-Greet,” Monday, this time with Mary Hynes, a Democrat running for the county board. Four Buckinghamsters showed up, plus a couple that Ms. Hynes brought along in case anyone needed English to Spanish translation. We must be the fastest growing political event in Arlington!

Somehow my invitation emails back in August and September were missed. We’re seeing if we can get together now. It might end up that it’s just an interview with me (with the transcript posted, of course). I’ll keep you posted.

I walked by the McDonald’s on N. Glebe Road at Arlington Boulevard the other day and saw this:
