  1. Hey, Scott. Just wanted to give you a shout-out for all the good work you do covering issues in Howard County. Sorry to learn you are discontinuing your blog.


  2. It is a CLEAR case of gerrymandering done in the back office of the MD democratic party. Hogan went to great lengths to make districts fair (non-political) but the Annapolis power brokers won.

    The MD congressional districts are another CLEAR example of gerrymandering. A number of hotdog districts (long and thin) to neutralize republication voters.

    I’m a democrat but why can’t we be fair to our fellow republication voters who are our neighbors?

    ” We get the government we deserve. “
