Slow day if you weren't in Washington, D.C. I'm leaving it up to you, as Dale and Grace once sang.

We might have some more from David Koon before long.

UPDATE: Brian Chilson is posting tons of photos on his Facebook page.

UPDATE II: Police announced this evening an arrest in a string of knifepoint robberies of convenience stores last weekend. You guess where they collared him:

Today at 5:00 p.m. officers took John Wesley Tillman into custody at the Exxon located at John Barrow and Colonel Glenn. He will be charged with 7 counts of Robbery, 6 counts of theft of property, 3 additional misdemeanor charges of theft and 1 count of possession of a controlled substance
