(Image) In the people that are not real bright category…A Charles County man is charged with violating Gov. Larry Hogan’s social distancing order after police say he threw a bonfire party with more than 60 people…seriously…do not be like this person: https://twitter.com/fox5dc/status/1244361186675691520?s=20

(Image) Trying to end the update on a positive note…As public schools in the Maryland scramble to get a plan implemented to begin online teaching to students…a private school in Elkridge kicked off their online learning back on March 18th.
