How Sears looks now in Bethesda

The entrances of Sears are now sealed off, since the venerable department store closed for good at Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda at 5:00 PM on January 20. I like the makeshift barricades of potted plants and furniture. It reminds me of the kind of blockades our corrupt Montgomery County Council might hastily throw up at the doors of 100 Maryland Avenue, when the FBI finally investigates their criminal activities and begins to make arrests.
We still haven't had literally the first investigation into the missing $7 million embezzled from County taxpayers this decade. Who else was in on it? Who knew what, when? Why was it covered up? Who else got some of the cash? Where's the money now? Is the Washington Post's Jennifer Barrios covering for them, or just the worst political reporter in America? There's no way, with so many County employees and officials knowing about this, that someone didn't blow the whistle to the Post. #ThingsThatMakeYouGoHmmm
