EFC plan analyzed:
Arlington County Manager Michael Brown (different from DC's two Michael Browns) has released his analysis

Women, ride your bikes:
Revolution Cycles wants to get more women
riding bikes, and is having a "ladies' night" in Clarendon tonight. Only 20% of DC cyclists are female. (TBD)
The New Yorkers are coming!:
The Huffington Post is sponsoring a caravan of buses
to haul New Yorkers to DC's upcoming Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert rally. We wonder if they might have been able charter a train instead. (We Love DC)
