The Comedy Central hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will take over the eastern side of the National Mall, the side nearest the U.S. Capitol, from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday. Here's how to get to their Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear.
You can rally on Saturday, you can run on Sunday. You can just dodge the resulting traffic. Do stay alert for the trick-or-treaters on Halloween, and don't party too hard in Georgetown. Whatever activity you're planning this very busy weekend, you'll be doing it in clear weather, but the temperatures will turn cooler. Here's a guide to planning the weekend's travel in the D.C. area.

Many thousands of people enjoyed Saturday's annual book festival on the National Mall, but some didn't have such a great time getting there and wondered why there wasn't more transit service. Dear Dr. Gridlock: I was very disappointed in Metro's performance on Saturday. When a Nationals game is on (stadium capacity 41,000), Metro will run extra trains. But when 130,000 people were expected on the Mall for the National Book Festival, Metro did not seem to be running any extra trains.
The Capital Weather Gang predicts we'll have generally pleasant weather this weekend, which just may help make up for the misery ahead on roads and rails throughout the region. Whether you're on the streets of the District or the suburbs, or riding beneath it all on Metrorail, you may run into delays that interfere with your travels. Here's a roundup of what's happening.
