Mayhem After Suggestion That DC Will Be A Suburb Of Tysons

A Fairfax County official had the guts to suggest that with all the growth and four—count 'em, four!—Metro stations coming to Tysons that it would become the hot urban center instead of, you know, the nation's freakin' capital. Naturally cyberspace swelled with comments on the subject. There was a lot of Twickering (Twitter bickering) throughout the day on @thetysonscorner's feed, plus a long stream of comments on popular city blogs. Such as Nobody puts Tysons in a corner! along with a picture of a hot and sweaty Patrick Swayze. For a few more snapshots of the conversation, follow the jump.
