    One really needs to keep in mind that MD really exhibited much of the same mentality as those states farther south until the 1970s and Democrats of that era and region weren't exactly exemplars of democracy.  I know what it was like growing up in MD during that transition period and it wasn't particularly pretty.  It was one of the reasons Agnew managed to slip into office, because the MD Democratic Party splintered on the issues of desegregation and bussing.  It's easy to forget that Wallace had quite a following in MD right up to his being gunned down.

      our circle of friends were always looking for ways to make things better, to be better.

      To this day, there is no shortage of racists in MD.  We plan to outlive them all.

      We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.
