Give Metro a break: D.C.'s blogs

By Lori Aratani

Good afternoon. Back today and apologies for Friday. We had some internal system problems, so i wasn't able to post and tweet your daily blog roundup. But no worries -- we're up and running today with lots of great posts. Read on.

For you family history buffs, O Say Can You See? has some great advice on preserving family photos and documents (and trying to salvage bits and pieces that have already been damaged).

Eric Erik Weber (sorry about that!) on Greater Greater Washington says that maybe Metro doesn't really deserve all the blame it's getting for the crush of crowds that jammed the system during the “Rally to Restore Sanity/Keep Fear Alive” a few Saturdays ago.

Surprising Science offers some insight on why “Farmville” is so addictive for some folks.

D.C. Mud has another great post about the impact of interior design on work spaces. In the past, they’ve shown how smart design can enliven institutional spaces such as hospitals. In this installment, they show how design can make the offices of the Children’s Law Center, a nonprofit that advocates for children in need, more welcoming.

The FoBoBlo blog has some advice for a group of GW students demanding refunds on their dorm costs because nearby construction noise is disturbing their sleep.

That's it for now, and thanks for reading. Have a great day -- and barring any more system issues, we'll be back tomorrow with more intriguing posts from the D.C. area blogosphere. Want to read more D.C. area blogs? Check out our local blog directory, where we have blogs listed by neighborhood as well as topic. If you're a D.C. area blogger, list your blog in the local blog directory.
