Today I caught one at the Ballston Metro. Look on the CommuterPage blog for a posting about it in the next couple of days.
Steve wins a "Dominion: Global Warming Starts Here" bumper sticker. Congratulations!

I can't make the event because I have to, like, go to work. Stupid career, always taking time away from my blog! If you go, email me and let me know how it went.
