Random Reader Rant and/or Revel

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. I’ll open this thread every Monday and Friday. So anything good happen to you this weekend?

  • Rave: My brother came home from Afghanistan, all in one piece. And he’s surprising his six year old daughter today when he picks her up from school. Wish I could be a fly on the wall.

    Rant: Litter. Really, people? How hard is it to walk two feet to a trash can? What is wrong with people?

    • That’s simply the greatest news ever. Congratulations to your family. I hope someone captures that on film.

    • That is very cool! I appreciate his service and hope people take the time to thank him for everything that he has done.

    • 2 for 2…

      Moved to tears on your rave.

      Total agreement with your rant.

    • Thank you all for your nice words. It was deployment three for our family (two brothers in the reserves), so that makes his safe return all the more appreciated.

  • Rant… broken arm (the dominant one).

    Rave… it could have been way worse and I am very, very lucky.

  • Rave: Two words — Portis blocking!

    Rant: At work on another top ten day!

  • Rave: crazy, fun road trip this weekend

    Rant: crazy, fun road trip this weekend

  • Rave: Went to this weekend’s grand opening of the Yards Park (thanks for the heads-up PoP). It was great – free food, good DJ, extended fireworks, a nice waterfall/fountains. I could hardly even tell there was a DC Water sewage facility nearby.

    • I second this rave … was there Friday night. Great music, a nice showing from local food trucks (including the lobster roll one) and after ball game fireworks! It’s such a beautiful space and I hope people from all over the city take full advantage while the weather is so perfect!

  • TV/radio weather reporters, just gimme the facts, not your opinions. My NICE isn’t your NICE. All of you sumbitches do this. All of you must stop this immediately.

    Thanking you in advance for your understanding in this matter, I remain

  • Rave: Primary BS finally ending this week

    Rant: Gray might win.

  • Rave: Fantastic weekend weather, saw a deer, a bear and a waterfall on our first hike in the mountains with the kids. Rain fell overnight and didn’t ruin our trip, yay!
    Rant: The mountains ’round here are much too small.

  • RAVE: The ridiculous and offensive voicemail messages from Marion Barry slurring his support for his protege Vincent Gray
    RANT: Gray supporters who claim Barry doesn’t support Gray

  • Rant: Frustated! My 3rd bike was stolen on Sat night, 9/11, at 15th & U. If you see a blue (looks bluish-green), Transeo 3.0 with disc brakes, report it to the police. The bike looks new and stands out because it’s an X-large frame. Thx!
