President Birge's comment that voters will not be able to "exercise their right" to voteRead More in a retention election until November 2016 is beyond disingenuous. If members of the County School Board were elected outright, as in 20 other Maryland jurisdictions, we would be exercising our right to vote THIS November. This County desperately needs an elected School Board, especially given the nonsense being spouted by the current unelected and unaccountable Board members.

Worried this will hurt the game? That's become an interesting phrase. But exactly what does itRead More mean? Lower attendance? Less enjoyable for fans? Does any of that trump the safety of the players? Sometimes I can't comprehend the level of egotism and selfishness. It's particularly worrisome in people who work with kids. I love football, but I put the players' welfare before my pleasure.

Let's face it: Football is a violent game. I can't imagine anyone letting their child play such anRead More injury-prone "sport". Sadly, from the trash movies and video games that our kids are weaned on, violence seems to be part of our culture. Too bad.
