Uh, Worcester County is rural, always has been. "Ghost towns" are places that were once populated then abandoned. Worcester County's population is increasing.

I fail to see how Worcester and PG are comparable other than both paying taxes to Annapolis.

PG County is much worse, with a lot of crime and illegal immigration. Worcester is mostly rural and pleasant based on my experiences. PG County is the 2nd worst place in Maryland based on crime, poverty, drugs, and violence and lawlessness and corrupt and liberal judicial systems. Baltimore City would be the worst in this regard.

LOL...yes...P.G should be a ghost town with all the dead bodies....Worcester County /Ocean City however in summer second largest city in Maryland due to influx of people visiting Ocean City. But yes definetly slow here inthe winter months....real slow.

(Mostly Drunk Rowdy people that forget how to act once they cross the bridge and a few shocked families that can't believe what OC has become).

I grew up in P.G. ..still visit ...always will be home ,moved to Worcester (Ocean Pines)...a nice place but.....can't wait to leave...however not going back to P.G.......

And as far as crime

Per Capita UCR (Uniform Crime Reports)

Salisbury MD(Eastern Shore) 1

(yes Salisbury first...per capita and if you check out neighborhood scout.com you will see Ocean City MD..Worcester County among the top as well....For violent Crime, probably due to large influx in Summer.)

Baltimore City 2

P.G. 3

how is a judicial system considered liberal? why do folks have to interject politics in everything? can't eat a ham sandwhich without someone complaining about the liberal sales tax on said ham sandwhich.

Hi Tom,

Can you get me the numbers on the poverty level in Prince George's County vs the rest of Maryland. In fact can you compare the poverty level in Prince George's County Maryland to the rest of the Country?

Also is your opinion based on fact? Or is your opinion based on Race? What motivates a person to say such things without any factual backing?


Can anyone give me the stats on the percentage of individuals in Poverty In the following areas;

United States
Maryland
Montgomery County
Prince George's County
Talbot County
Baltimore County

I'd like to see which has the following;

1. Highest total number of people under the poverty level
2. Highest percentage of people under the poverty level

I'm just shocked that county with close to 1 Million people and a Median income of more than 70k can be considered poverty ridden?

Statistically it would be impossible lol. Median would assume that half the people make over 70k and the other half make under right? (Granted i do know the answers to all of these I'm merely playing devils advocate, because I'm bored

Somerset County (Crisfield/ Princess Anne) has historically been the poorest of MD's Eastern Shore counties.

Although I do agree with most of what you said, I would like to point that Montgomery County has a higher rate of poverty than PG County. Strange, I know.
