That's a great discussion topic. Maybe if you were a bit more inventive/imaginative in your posting you'd get better responses than I feel bothered to give. That's a polite way of saying "you're the problem, not the solution to the issue".

Maryland is a boring state.

I should know. I live there.

Well I guess Baltimore inspires some thrills, mostly for the wrong reasons.

Otherwise it's all about the Purple Line and what chain restaurants will follow it.

I wanted to get the Heck Out of NJ...getting a job in DC provided that...living in MD is purely out of convenience to get to work and sometimes get the Heck Back Into NJ...

MD is like that rebound chick...you have fun with it...but you're not going to be 100% committed. In a number of ways...MD is worse than Jersey...who the heck pays taxes on clothing?!

Before people get all whatever-hurt, I'm not knocking MD...but people don't exactly grow up wanting to move here...most of us transplants are here because we got a better job than we could of in our home states...believe me...after I put in my time, I'll be heading more and more South...where there is excitement, lower cost of living, and same or higher pay. I would have gunned for VA, but that commute would suck...1.5 hours minimum each way for a 14-20 mile commute into the District...no thank you.

Now if it helps, I did buy a new car here. I guess that's saying something.

Since I've been here, been to Baltimore a couple of times...and thanks to my networking group to give me some sort of social outlet, I've been all over the DMV. I tell all my friends and family this is just a transitional period for me...but who knows how long that period is...I could be transitioning for a year, two years, 10 years, 20 years...who knows, I may even come back to this very thread and say I LOVE MD!

(I just don't see that happening in the very foreseeable future...lol.)

And a sales tax is regressive and massively hurts the poor. Pick your poison.

Stupid is MD having a Back to School sales tax holiday and not exempting school supplies.

There is nothing special about Maryland. You are just there. Of course, some town are real ****. Edmonston, for example. Lol, their own mayor doesn't want to pay a speeding ticket and they have that cheesy bridge on Decatur St. Kenilworth Ave is a disaster within its borders. It took them long enough to pave a portion of it, but then they leave the rest to rot.

Why do I have to be a "bit more inventive/imaginative" when they are other people on these boards who can contribute as well?
