They have a great park for kids, and had a couple good outdoor concerts over the summer. The pharmarcy on the corner makes the best chocolate shake in the USA.

Thanks guys, Old Towne Gaithersburg is probably Montgomerys nicest historic districts. At the MARC station (which still uses the original B&O station house) there's also a small railroad museum with beautifully preserved historic rail equipment. I think filmsniffer is just a disgruntled extremist neocon who lets prejudice blind him/her.

Prince George County ..a lot of people take this out of context..PG COUNTY IS THE RICHEST COUNTY WITH AND FOR BLACK PEOPLE...hmmm see this information is not all inclusive it just shows the demographics of the income of one particular race and of course this is important to us as minorities bc for some it gives them hope..but PG COUNTY IS HOOD RICH...in all of the adds it discussed how there is no longer the plantation of the 1800's and fields..but now there are homes,golf courses and swimming pools in those areas..hmmm that is a hood report.and doesn't make me smile bc it is all built on stuff..nothing being stated about awesome schools,community affairs or anything..so maybe the plantation is not there but the mentality still exists..so I really wanted to clear that up...PGC...is the best Hood Rich for us blacks...not knocking it just presenting facts...this is actually one of my options to relocate but Howard is my first choice..and trust me private school is my only option in PG County!! it is time for change..this is soooo sad
Have you really looked closely at all of the school data in Howard County? There are schools is excess of 30% free and reduced meal. Is that the wealth you are touting?

There are more Hispanics in the areas surrounding Lakeforest. You've already shown us you're just another prejudiced prick who refers to every Hispanic as an illegal "mexican." Why don't you "shove" your racist attitude or get out of Montgomery? I have said many times before I'm not oblivious to MoCo's illegal immigrant problem, but it's not as terrible as people make it out to be. Of course when you live by the moronic sterotypes you've posted, everyone is an illegal to you.
That's where you are wrong. I LIVE here, and have been for over 40 years. What about you, eh? I've also made great friends here. Trust me when I say the illegal immigrant is even bigger than you think. Come on, hardly anything gets reported. You should at least know that.

When was the last time you visited the heart of Old Town for a while? If you like it so much, why don't you camp out there and witness everything for yourself. Or, for an alternative location, go to Clopper Rd MVA.

That's right, make personal attacks towards me now. Is that how you deal with people when they don't agree with your views?

Good for you, is that how long you've held in your extreme prejudices? I've only been here for

How about everyday when I commute from Germantown via the MARC train, and I have yet to see an Hispanic board the train there, although I see Hispanics, Blacks, and Whites walking to the school in the mornings. Not to mention that I drive through there at least every week, and for about a year I was at the MC Business Center every week. Actually, (I can't believe I forgot about this) I remember one day when I was leaving the MC building seeing a brand new black Lamborghini Gallardo. Yeah, in Mont. County you can expect to see an exotic every week or so (I'm a car buff and spot them easily), but usually in Bethesda so that's why it stuck in my memory. Those "illegal mexicans[sic.]" sure have money, don't they?

You shouldn't even bother, he/she sees no difference through his/her racially prejudiced eyes.

No one can speak there mind. Which is our Constitutional right! When you do you are labeled an "angry white man" or "neoconservative" is that the word you were looking for cpterp, or did you mean necon-nazi? Liberals don't want anyone to speak there mind when it's against the liberal agenda.

Long live liberty!!!!
