Happy New Year!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year. Hopefully we'll inch closer to leaving the real estate boom/bust and resulting economic disaster that defined the past several years behind us.

The past two Januaries, both in 2008 and 2009, the Howard County Police Department engaged in botched raids that resulted in two family dogs being shot. Hopefully, this is a trend that will end this year. County Executive Ken Ulman, who allowed both of these shootings to occur on his watch without so much as a word from his office about it (despite the fact that Ulman was more than happy to get involved in the investigation of the infamous Halloween shooting, but seems to have no interest in the fact that the police dropped the ball on that one), wasted no time launching a new campaign website.

Another election year begins.

What is it with you and real estate, and now supporting anti-petition movements beyond anything a real libertarian would be upset about.

Seriously. Are you in the real estate field or depend on land development?

I love how all the anti-growth HCCA CoFoDoDo folks always claim that those who don't stand with them are in the real estate field or otherwise benefit from land development.

Anon 205: Name 3 Howard County industries that don't somehow depend on real estate or benefit from land development.
