WAPO writer Dan Morse - Is Montgomery County the least bit curious about the 'no fixed address' side of this story.

Do the inquiring minds at the WAPO forbid you from asking such questions?

Maryland needs to remember that Maryland became a Sanctuary State thanks to Govenor Martin O'Malley.

Lets thank Ike Isiah 'ike' Leggett Montgomery County Executive for his

Thanks to all those elected officials in the following Maryland jurisdictions:

Baltimore, MD
Gaithersburg, MD
Mt. Rainier, MD
Montgomery County, MD
Takoma Park, MD

Remember to vote November 2, 2010 - and forget to bring your identification its okay.

What is the problem with Veirs Mill Rd? My friend and I drove past what seemed to be something similar on Veirs Mill Rd and Twinbrook Pkwy around 11pm on Saturday June 12th. There was a car stopped in the road and a man laying on the street. I don't know if the car had either -spun out to miss him and stopped- or the car had struck the guy and then spun out and stopped. I just know that ambulances were on their way and many people were standing around. It is very dark in the strip between Twinbrook Pkwy and Aspen Hill Rd but after reading about the incident on Sunday it is making it so that I do not want to travel on Veirs Mill Rd.
