FYI- This is obviously a personal opinion- not a statistical quote.

I think the point is that the haters like to rant and rave, sometimes to the height of sheer hysterics about how bad PG County is.

I have family who live in a probably close to $700,000+ house in North Bowie, and there are lots of areas like theirs all throughout the county. There are some bad areas (mostly near the S.E. D.C. border), of course...

Just making sure that the poster (uggabugga) understood that the 5% is not a documented statistic- just lscalder's personal opinion. No one else posted percentages, and usually when someone posts a percentage, they back it up with a link. I was only pointing out that the 5% mentioned (% of the county that lscalder believes needs improvement) was an assumption, and the actual number could be much lower or much higher.

No doubt you're correct. Perhaps it was a figure of speech, like how I might say, "Man, I have a million things to do today!" when in reality it's only 1/2-million. LOL

It was a figure of speech my point was PG county is the largest county in Maryland and a very very small percentage needs improvement vs the largest portion of the county which are family friendly,quiet areas.

I would put it closer to 25%, but I do agree that the largest portion is fine.

It's interesting to see how people's percentages differ. Anyone know a way to find out a more precise %? Something documented?

How do you document an exact percentage of something that's subjective opinion?

Might as well as the Census Bureau to begin keeping track of "undateable" people in the adult population.

LOL, I was thinking the same thing. I would think the closest thing to this documentation would be crime rates.

How do you know???!!!
How much of PGC do you really know about other than your "sanitized" neighborhood and others that you "think" are the same? You have said before that you hate older homes - why? Is it what you see on the evening news that turns you?

You said it - PG county is the largest county in Maryland. Have you driven on every road that needs repaving, seen every strip mall that was been boarded up and every mound of demise that can be a monument to the mis-management of the county? Have you been out of that small percentage you cling to?

Is there any real sense of pride and home that rings of Maryland injected into the county? Answer - NO.
Most people don't know the history of the state or county. Few have driven around and taken note of historical sites that this county is rich with.
This Maryland State Flag (enlarged) is no doubt more than most people know of the state.
Have you ever opened a phone book and tried to single out a faction of the county government you want to speak with? PGC's government is rife with needless redundancy, stumbling blocks and dead ends all for the sake of providing needless employment. Don't think about taxes.

That is why I propose razing the county and starting over.

BTW - What country are you from?
