I miss O'Malley as governor of Maryland.

"Hogan seeks halt to Syrian refugee resettlement in Maryland"

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/politics/bs-md-hogan-refugees-20151117-story.html

This goes against everything O'Malley did stand for, does stand for, and has accomplished.

As governor, O'Malley showed compassion towards immigrants and refugees.

1. SO DO I!

I'm AFRAID to listen to local news these days!

THIS, however, may be good; we can discuss!

Montgomery County moves ahead with plans to scrap high school finals.

2. I'm probably with the teachers on this.

But it bears a closer look.

3. Just heard, on the news, he's getting some flak for this,

and a mayor, don't know where, said she/they WILL welcome refugees. Will look for where.

HERE, Baltimore!

'Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake who has identified increased immigration as one of the keys to growing Baltimore's population directly contradicted the governor's call. "I hope that refugees from Syria will look to our city as a potential place to call home," she said.

Meanwhile, Hogan was also taking flak from his right flank.

Del. Patrick L. McDonough, a Baltimore County Republican, decried Hogan's statement as too weak.

"The governor is leaving the door open on these refugees," he said. "My position is zero tolerance not to permit them to come in under any circumstances."'

4. Good for Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake!

She's doing the right thing. It is time to turn up the heat on Hogan, especially if his position leaves some room for accepting refugees in the future.
