Our daughter, a Hawaii State House Representative, called yesterday and mentioned that she had seen on the net that there was a sink hole on Lawyers Road. We had no idea of this. It just so happened that we had just crossed Hunters Mill Road and were headed west on Lawyers. We were stunned to get this info from Hawaii! Small world, indeed. Roger Lowen, Reston

It is patched, but there is a dip in the road. I live on Steeplechase and wondered what had happened.

Gee, we could have buried the dead Boston bomber terrorist in the sink hole, so we could drive over his body every day.
