County Board Passes New Noise Ordinance in Garvey's Absence


Hey Yupette,

Too bad Libby Garvey fell off her bicycle and missed yesterday's County Board meeting. County Board ended up adopting the County Manager / County Staff recommended noise ordinance that's not going to do much to reduce noise before 1 AM in the so-called "Mixed-Use Districts" aka Party Zones drawn by County Staff who don't live in Arlington. Thanks to J.Walter "Nada" Tejada and "Gourmet" Jay Fisette, who live in Dominion Hills and Ashton Heights respectively, the noise from pub crawlers and partiers won't subside until 2 AM when the bars close. If Libby had been able to attend yesterday's County Board meeting, she, Mary Hynes, and John Vihstadt would have likely voted to start shutting down the noise at 11 PM on weekends, and earlier on weekdays. The new ordinance regulates yelling, wailing, shouting, or screaming, but not loud conversations among hundreds to thousands involved in pub crawls. That's what we hear in my Clarendon neighborhood of single family homes.

Chief Scott's comment "We can't arrest our way out of this" + hundreds of drunk pub crawlers at Midnight = ?

These 20-somethings all have important jobs, many in the federal government. Who are behind this agenda to have them $#!+ faced drunk as often as possible?

Who are sponsoring these pub crawls that are not only f---ing up the Yupsters who work at the Pentagon but people who work at the Pentagon and can't get a good night's sleep?

Crusaders, by the grace of Allah, praised be His Name, and through the efforts of our Beloved Martyr, Osama Bin Laden, we are using the moral weaknesses of Crusaders who are assigned to the Pentagon to disrupt your Crusade against Mujihdeen

Yeah, Al Queda has completely infiltrated Arlington and is totally f-ing up the Pentagon with drugs, alcohol, prostitution, and so on.

Yeah, I don't care if the hipsters who I work with at CIA who launch missiles from Predators at terrorists are zonked after partying all night every night, I need $25,000 to pay for my kid's college tuition by August 15th.

My boyfriend blew up a wedding party with a Predator two years ago and he's still drinking himself stupid every weekend to get over it.

Al Queda operatives delivering hoes and drugs to CIA Analysts 'Inside the Beltway'? No wonder we can't win anywhere in the Third World.

What else could you expect from 'Neverland on the Potomac' Jay and 'Cinco de Mayo' Walter?

Stop Smart Growth. Only beneficiaries are out-of-state REITs and their attorneys, planners, consultants, contractors, and Arlington Planning staff who don't live in Arlington.

If the Post wants to run features about dysfunctional behavior in the Metro section while promoting partying in the Weekend and Style sections the Post should do a feature about the waiting list for drug and alcohol rehab. in this metro area.

Second the motion to Stop Smart Growth. Who are benefiting? Arlington Democratic Committee members and their corporate and non-profit cronies.

The report about Al Queda using the Arlington and other pub crawls and other drunken behavior involving CIA employees and contractors to destabilize the CIA belongs on Al Jezeera.

Positive news is we can vote out both Whitlows Mary and Nada Tejada next year.

Mary Hynes allowed the crawls to get out of control in her own neighborhood. That's inexcusable.

Yes, people with significant national security responsibilities are involved in the crawls. I live with some of them in an upscale apartment building near the Clarendon Metro station.
