      You should have added, Sorry for the inconvenience.

  • monkeydaddy

    I’m struck by the contrast between the brutalist architecture and organic robes, instruments, and voices of the people in the place. That’s not funny or anything, I’m just noticing it.

    Sadly, Metro’s “If you see something, say something” campaign was rendered largely ineffective by the Franciscans vow of silence.

    Tired of hearing long strings of explicatives each morning on the red line, followed by the phrase “God damn it,” the monks took action.

  • For future reference, this is who we’re referring to when we say “people from PG county”.

      I’m from PG County. I don’t get it.

      • Anonymous

        I’m going to assume that since these are the whitest people ever it’s a joke about how every time someone mentions PG county here every calls them a racist and assumes they’re talking negatively about black people.

    • JohnnyReb

      Yes, as a Prince Georgian, I don’t “get it” either. I usually like reading your point of view, Justin, but please don’t mock a place you are, apparently, unfamiliar with (We all know that you grew up in NC). For those of us whose families have been here for a long time, we know that places change and evolve.

      • textdoc

        I don’t think he was mocking the place, but rather the practice of people using “people from Maryland” or “people from Prince George’s County” as codespeak for “black people.”

    More proof that “Von Trapp Familymania” is just not going to take off like “Beatlemania” – they just can’t book a decent gig.

    No, they never returned, because they didn’t have the exit fare.

    Unable to keep the trains running through conventional means, Metro is now trying song and prayer.

    It figures that the stairway to heaven would be a broken Metro escalator. I always knew God had a great sense of humor.

    Now I’ve been happy lately, thinking about the on time metro train to come
    And I believe it could be, the escalators have to run

    Oh I’ve been smiling lately, dreaming about the metro riders as one
    And I believe it could be, some day it’s going to come

    Cause out on the edge of Tysons, there rides a silver line train
    Oh metro train take these suburbs, come take me home again


    Oh %^&! it, let’s go catch a cab…
