Hostage situation at Discovery Channel HQ

photo by sujewa ekanayake, 9/1/10

A man took several hostages at the Discovery Channel headquarters in Silver Spring, MD today. Town center was shut down while the police tried to solve the situation. The photo above is from around 3 PM, just a block away from the Discovery building (if you look carefully on the top left you can see the blue Discovery sign). Ultimately the hostage taker was killed, all the hostages were rescued w/ out any harm to them (that's the latest I heard on the news). Click on the photo for a news story about the unfortunate event.

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.

Great movie, well written, well acted.  An interesting NYC experience.

Check out the movie at Netflix -
