too much work to do

There's far too much going on for me to put serious thought into anything right now, but here are a few things going on that I just had to share:

ROAD TRIP FOR A RAIL LINE: As I speak, Purple Line supporters are headed to Annapolis to plead their case to our newly elected legislators and governor. If the event is successful, supporters plan to park at New Carrollton and wait for the first Purple Line train home.

TYSONS RISING: Fairfax County, with its laissez-faire attitude towards business, has long outstripped Montgomery County, but could it soon unseat D.C. as core of the region? Not quite, but it shows that Maryland is slowly but surely falling behind.

LAUREL RISING: It won't restore Maryland to its rightful place over Virginia, but take a look into the future of Laurel Mall at a presentation from the mall's developers TONIGHT at 6:30 in Laurel.

HELL IS PEOPLE IN BETHESDA: Bethesda blogger Merujo won't take crap from some rich snots at Montgomery Mall. Why do I take most of my business to Wheaton Plaza? Because even Hollister can't make Wheaton the least bit pretentious.

Finally, there's a new blog for the South Silver Spring Neighborhood Association, and the Silver Spring Scene, the granddaddy of Silver Spring blogs, has turned one year old. Since then, as many as seven new Silver Spring blogs have been created (including this one, which wouldn't exist had I not stumbled on SSS one day last spring).

Oh, well. We meet Nancy Floreen on Thursday, and come back Friday to read about it.
