Other counties have green buildings, Arlington has green gimmicks based on the idiotic LEED scoring system whereby you attain "green" certification by planting drought resistant plants and installing bicycle racks in your 400 vehicle underground parking garage.

The County Board's and School Board's pet architects, developers, and engineers are only competent and capable of designing and building energy-inefficient, ugly, and expensive modernist buildings. Westover multi-use building is the latest example.

Let's not forget the Civic Federation which has done and said about zero regarding truly energy efficient public buildings.

It's all part of what the Arlington County Board of Charades actually does, rather than what it says. That's what we deserve for re-electing Favola, Fisette, and Zimmerman.

The School Board is worse. All petty politics.

That's what we deserve for allowing in-fill developers to run the County.

I doubt Arlington's bloated school bureaucracy can make a good case for a grant from the state in anything less than 3 years, nevermind 3 weeks.

I am surprised that Governor Kaine would offer such grants, given the influence of Dominion Resources, Washington Gas, and the coal companies.
