Is the Virginia jobless rate calculated the same as the national jobless rate? I thought if lessRead More people are looking for work, usually the jobless rate comes down.
Bruce Alter July 19, 2014 at 08:07 am
Patrick J is correct. If a person stops looking for work s/he is NOT counted in the jobless rate.Read More The rate is a measurement of people who ARE looking for work, but who cannot get it.

Your description of the new route for silver line is very confusing. Will the train operator changeRead More the sings on the train from orange to silver and vice versa?

Nothing new. For years we have had junk food in the DC Metro where the word 'gourmet' was added onRead More so restaurant operators could charge 50%-100% more.
Elsa July 11, 2014 at 10:57 am
If you were familiar with GWAR you'd know this IS kind of novel! I doubt there are manyRead More bar/restaurants w/ the "ambiance" & back story of the GwarBar.

I concur on that part of the story but concerning junk food tagged 'gourmet', they will be right atRead More home here.

There has never been a Chicken Out at Langley Shopping Center, so the article is incorrect.
Mary Ann Barton June 30, 2014 at 11:20 am
It was just a "coming soon" sign.
Daniel Schatzie July 13, 2014 at 02:30 pm
I pressed them to consider a location in the vacant Chicken Out in McLean last year. Glad to see itRead More happening. With Santini's here I suspect many of the weaker pizza spots in McLean will suffer. It's that good.

Amtrak plans to launch high-speed Wi-Fi service that will allow streaming media and downloading large files. Credit: File|Patch

Amtrak should be doing this along the Auto train route to Florida. Having been on the Acela, theyRead More already have wifi. But on the Auto Train -- an overnight experience -- there is no wifi. This would reduce traffic along the I-95 corridor going south and make Amtrak -- dare I say it -- reasonable value if not profitable...

The auto train has WiFi but only in the lounge car. I traveled on the auto train last month.
