      Penny wise but pound foolish…

      Perhaps instead focusing on education, unemployment, and liveable wages thereby reducing the disenfranchisement of the poor might be wiser?

        You have to do both, actually. It’s not one or the other.

          “DC’s been trying to make poor people rich enough so they can leave and PG County is just as stabby as ever.”

          Sad but true. I was just talking with my grandfather over the holidays, and he was reminiscing about how back in the early 1970s, PG County was home to the idyllic suburbs of the sleepy government town….my how things have changed.

          I wonder when the hipters will start to gentrify PG?

            Hyattsville/MtRainier? That’s where some of my artist friends have moved in recent years.

    Any more info on what went down at the Rosedale Library? The playground was padlocked afterwards but the police left – it wasn’t marked as any kind of crime scene.
