soldier monitoring troublesome Lynn St. intersection

The intersection at N. Lynn St. and Wilson Blvd in Rosslyn has been troublesome. Pedestrians ignoring the cross signals create hazards for themselves and bikes and cars. Walking across the intersection while looking up at the "mother tries to Facebook shame daughter; gets pizza in the face" so-called news ticker creates additional danger. And cars rudely enter the intersection without room to get the other side. The result is gridlock for everyone.

The soldier now stationed at the intersection should eliminate these problems. If you violate the crossing signals or block the intersection, he will come after you. Beware!

suspected Rosslyn residence of John Coltrane UNCOVERED!

Despite widespread belief that John Coltrane died in 1967 at the tragically young age of 40, free-jazz aficionados who have had the privilege of riding the Rosslyn metro escalator know better. Their ears have heard what their eyes haven't seen. John Coltrane lives. He lives beneath the Rosslyn metro. Some believe that Pharoah Sanders lives there with him, but that seems improbable.

Recent demolition work at Central Place has confirmed the existence of a large living space under the Rosslyn metro. The heart-rending question now is whether Coltrane has been driven from Rosslyn.

Coltrane and the annual Rosslyn Jazz Festival have been central to Rosslyn's stellar jazz reputation. We must keep Coltrane living in Rosslyn, even if that means providing him affordable housing in a basement suit in the new, luxurious Central Place residential building.

Rosslyn spiritual fuel-stop better than Clarendon church living

Today's young professionals are fast-charging and wide-ranging. The Rosslyn's church on top of the Sunoco gas station serves young professionals and everyone else seeking a spiritual fuel-stop. Clarendon church living lacks the dynamism of the Rosslyn spiritual experience.

view Rosslyn war horses from new multi-user path

The new multi-user path on the south-east side of Rt. 50 offers a view of the Rosslyn war horses stationed at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall. You have to peer through the brambles alongside of the fence to see the Rosslyn war horses. But be careful. If one of these horses gets angry, it could easily smash down the fence and trample you to death.

Rosslyn's famed Buffalo soldiers rode horses like these. So too did Civil War cavalry. Some say that these horses are direct descendants of the horses of the legendary Knights of the Rosslyn Round Table. The Ode Street Tribune has not been able to verify those claims.

awesome power tools in Rosslyn

Rosslyn's Central Place is currently filled with awesome power tools. Just take a look at the size of the hole driller.
With that massive machinery, Rosslyn has been feeling the earth move. Demolition of the building in the background, which supported Rosslyn's famous crape myrtle mural, has been completed. Rosslyn is already feeling more vibrant and invigorated after that heavy work. Anticipation and excitement is now reaching a feverish pitch for the new erections coming to Rosslyn's Central Place.
