Silver Spring News 'N Notes

- There's been another home invasion in Silver Spring, this time on the 11000 block of Navahoe Drive. I'm not entirely sure where this is, and Google Maps says it doesn't exist. The truly shocking thing there must be so many home ivasions these days that NBC 4 actually has created multiple logos: 1 2

- In case you missed it, Doug Duncan held a news conference on the "carpet" in downtown Silver Spring yesterday. The Erlich cutout is creepy.

- The "American Taliban" grew up in Silver Spring. How did I not know this?

Just wanted to say 'hi' to a fellow Silver Springer (or is it Silver Springian?) - I stumbled across your blog through a link from a pst Jerry McCoy put up on our neighborhood discussion list. If you get a chance check out my blog or stop by one of our Open Garden events this summer.

I believe it is "Silver Springer". Which neighborhood discussion list are you a member of? I'd be interested in joining, just to get the lowdown on what's going on in that area of the Spring.

From TIME magazine:
Walker's childhood neighbors said the things neighbors always say in these situations. "They were an average American family," and John "was a sweet, quiet boy." It happens to be true. John Walker Lindh was a middle child named after John Lennon and Chief Justice John Marshall. He spent his first 10 years in Silver Spring, Md., in the happy, unremarkable manner that most parents wish for their children. "We were loud, normal kids," says Andrew Cleverdon, a boyhood friend of Walker's. "We played football and basketball, rode our bikes." John's father, attorney Frank Lindh, took the bus to his job at the Department of Justice. Marilyn Walker was a stay-at-home mom who kept her maiden name. They played with their three kids, went to Mass at St. Bernadette's Catholic Church and held a "Kentucky Derby Day" every May.
