When Governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. formally announces his stem cell plans today, he says he'd like to have supporters of the research alongside him, including Democrats from the legislature. He went so far as to invite them to attend his press conference at 11 a.m. in Baltimore.
Only one problem: The lawmakers convene for their first session at noon, in Annapolis. We didn't see Ehrlich Communications Director Paul E. Schurick when the invites went out, so we don't know if he was struggling mightily to keep a straight face, but some lawmakers are wondering.
Del. Sandy Rosenberg (D-Baltimore), who sponsored stem cell legislation, said he has not RSVP'd to the governor, but he wrote in his web diary at this morning, that attending, and still making it to Annapolis would be "Tough to do both without a State Police escort."
