Why does road paving take so long in Massachusetts?

Why does road paving take so long in Massachusetts? Last year, when the Mass Pike was being paved, it was a multi-month project. They would mill the road, leave the milled road as is for several weeks, then pave it. The process of covering the length of the work area took several months. By comparison, when I lived in the DC Metro area, paving happened overnight on Route 66 in Northern Virginia inside the Beltway - seemingly instantaneously. One machine would mill the road, collect the milled asphalt, turn it into new asphalt, lay it, and then it would be paved -- in hours, not weeks or months. They would mill/pave one lane one night, then move to the next lane the next night. [more inside]

Casual massage classes in DC

Anyone know of places that offer massage workshops in the DC/MD area? I've looked around at some of the local massage schools, but they don't seem to offer public classes and I'm not looking to become a licensed or registered massage therapist, just looking to surprise my honey (hence the anonymity).

DC Dentist Recommendations?

I searched the archives and came up with two threads DC-wise, one recommending doctors in general and another with recommendations for cosmetic dentistry. The dentist I'm looking for is metro accessible (preferably NW DC) and has reasonable rates (completely out of pocket) for a standard cleaning and plaque removal/scaling. Thanks!

DC Parking - any zone maps?

Is a map of parking zones in Washington DC available anywhere? I am moving to a central area where street parking is a nightmare most of the time. I think I'll have a zone 1 sticker - I'm trying to gauge where the boundaries are of zone 1 - so I'd know where to try and keep my car for the time being (I plan to get rid of it, but not quite yet). Google and DC DMV sites turn up nothing..

Can you recommend a safe DC-area city/neighborhood for a military couple who want to start a family?

My husband is a Marine we will be moving to the DC Area in November. He will be working near the Washington Navy Yard, and his commute is a concern for us. We are planning on starting a family, so living in a safe neighborhood is a priority. We would like to live in a "nicer" neighborhood, preferably quiet and family-friendly. We would like to spend about $1,600/month on rent, but would be willing to spend as much as $1,850 to get what we want. [more inside]

Voice-over actor in NoVa

Can anyone recommend a voice-over actor or vocal coach in the DC/Northern VA area? I'm interested in locating someone for a brief interview/lesson that would be part of a podcast. Someone who would do it for the possibility of some free publicity and the certainty of a free lunch would be optimal, but not essential.

What was the comic where DC superheroes appeared as babies?

I remember reading as a young kid - in about 1985/6 - a comic book starring the cast of the Justice League of America as babies or toddlers. I'm not sure of the specifics, like if it was actually the JLA, but it definitely had cute little baby versions of all the favourite DC staples: Superman, Batman, Wonderwoman and the Flash. Does anyone else remember this? Am I imagining the whole thing? What was it called and where can I find a copy? [more inside]
