Not a whole heck of a lot going on in Silver Spring, hence the dearth of posts of late.
- Thomas L. Friedman writes about Blair's graduation ceremony in today's New York Times. Of course, you can't read this unless you have a subscription to TimesSelect, which I don't. However, I did track down the following portion of his column:
The commencement was my daughter Natalie’s, the high school was Montgomery Blair in Silver Spring, Md. There were some 700 kids receiving their diplomas, and as I sat there for two hours listening to each one’s name pronounced, I became both fascinated and touched by the stunning diversity — race, religion, ethnicity — of the graduating class. I knew my daughter’s school was diverse, but I had no idea it was this diverse.- The Bubble Meter blog, which spends quite a bit of time maligning the Mica Condos in DTSS, notes that the condos have resorted to hosting an all-you-can-eat crab feast to attract potential buyers. (Personal note: as a person who plans to buy a new home shortly in Silver Spring, I hope to God they are wrong.)
- This blogger has an analysis of the pedestrian crossing light at Georgia Ave & Forest Glen Rd, which, of course, was named the worst intersection in MoCo.
