Talkback: 'Commons' Comments of the Week

Introducing a new Monday feature: the best reader feedback from the previous week, lovingly plucked from the comments of "John Kelly's Commons" and displayed here for all to see. Is there a prize? No, just the fame that comes from having your inscrutable online moniker associated with some snippet of thought or opinion.

From Thursday's post about the takeover of Chevy Chase Bank, "I'm Chevy Chase and You're Not," came this comment from BBride:

Not a big fan of Chevy Chase Bank either but I'm sorry to see this institution and others like Citizens Bank ("Day time, night time, Saturday too....") and Riggs Bank ("The most important bank in the most important city in the world"). Does this mean the field at Byrd Stadium is now Capital One Field? Sheesh! Props to the Burke and Herberts, Sandy Springs and Providents for hanging on in the dog eat dog world of banking.

From "What If God Was One of Us?," Wednesday's post about dueling ads about religion on Metro buses, from MattinSW:

This all reminds me of the great "Jews for Jesus" radio wars from a few years ago. I mean, what better place to debate theology than commercial blocks on 101.1 FM?

From "Walk This Way," Tuesday's post about the odd trash I encounter while walking, came this comment from dragondancer1814:


...[The] strangest thing I've seen on my walks to and from the school was the time I saw a jockstrap hanging from the wires near the high school. Whether it was fired up there by one of the guys, an angry sister, or a dumped/cheated-on girlfriend, I'll never know. All I know is that it rated about an 8 on my weird-stuff-o-meter.

Seen something strange? Tell me about it. And now it's time for...

Where in Washington: Week 7
Is this getting too hard? Last week's "Where in Washington?" garnered only one correct answer. Reader Eric Topor knew it was the Hay-Adams Hotel, across from the White House. Here's this week's mystery locale (from the collection of David Stinson):

Know what it is? Send your guess to kellyj@washpost.com. The first correct answer I receive gets the autograph of a Washington Post Pulitzer Prize-winner.
