    Some good news from the Washington area I caught the other day:

    Loudoun’s Economic Development Director Buddy Rizer told a recent
    gathering of business leaders that the Silver Line already is spurring
    interest from companies looking for new space. He said that in Northern
    Virginia last year, 92 percent of new office leases involved buildings
    located within 2.5 miles of Metro stations.

    It at least looks like companies are betting on the SIlver Line being a force for good in the region.
