Follow me on this:
- Loudoun county has the highest median household income in the nation.
- It is one of the fastest growing counties in the country.
- Ashburn, Virginia, the largest city in Loudoun county, is home to AOL Headquarters, the Redskins training facility and hundreds of middle class families
- And today, my Ashburn neighbor, Farooque Ahmed, was arrested by Federal agents for plotting to blow up the DC metro.
Truth be told I didn't know Farooque. I believe I had seen him before walking the neighborhood with his wife in Muslim garb. This isn't a terribly unusual site in this culturally diverse area so I can't be sure it was him. But I can assure you that every family on the block tonight will take extra care to lock their doors, shut their windows, and pop a few Pepto Bismols before retiring for the night.
Here's a quick video recap I gave on site:
More on this tomorrow.
