MoCo council got an earful Thursday about the zoning text amendment that would allow Costco to bypass environmental review for the gas station they want to install as part of their proposed store at Wheaton Mall.

Is it just me or do the Gazette restaurant reviewers visit Rockville/Gaithersburg disproportionately to everywhere else in MoCo? Despite that, nice to hear about a possibly good Russian spot — quality post-Soviet eats are scarce around here.
