Close to a Breach

Last month, I mentioned the movie Breach, the recently released movie about the Robert Hanssen, the FBI super-agent turned Soviet spy.

I hope I don't ruin the end of the movie for you, but Hanssen gets arrested. In fact, he gets arrested in Foxstone Park in Vienna, Va. just after leaving what probably would have been his final drop.

Well, apparently Microsoft federal's uber-PR guru Keith Hodson lives in that neighborhood. He told me recently that he came home last year to find the streets shut off. The big movie lights were set up and there was food. Apparently the movie crews didn't really let them know that this was going to be happening, so it came as a shock, of course.

And apparently they didn't have enough snow, so they used cotton to put on people's yards. Ah, Hollywood!

I don't have the Hodson review yet. At last report, he had yet to see it. (He says he tried, but it was sold out so he had to see something horrible.)
