Round Up: Columbia Flier Edition...

Some quick hits on stories from this week's Flier:

First, the strangest story of the week: 36 dead geese found dumped near a playground. Is there really anything I can say about this? No. Let's move on.

Now, this would be great.

A potential plan to study extending the Washington, D.C. Metro's Green Line to BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport could include a stop in eastern Howard County.

That stop would be in Guilford, near Columbia, according to a preliminary map of the proposed extension released by the General Assembly's Department of Legislative Services.

Of course, at this point, it's just a "potential plan to study" the possibility of a Metro extension, which at this point means just about nothing. But at least it's being talked about. Oh, and by the way, the price tag for extending the Green line to BWI would be about $3 billion, or $1 billion more than the Inter-County Connector.

Finally, the Howard County police have a couple new weapons in their arsenal: Hot Rods, specifically a Ford Mustang and a Dodge Charger. The sports cars are used for covert traffic enforcement, but now that a story has been written about the new cruisers, what does that do to their overall covertness? I actually saw the Mustang pull someone over a couple weeks ago on Rt. 29 (and, no, I wasn't the one being pulled over).

That's great I am glad to know that my tax money is going to buy the police department hot rods. I thought the hidden helicopter was a crime but this takes the cake. Is the Chief of Police going to use one of the new cars to ride in local parades to promote his run for council.

Probably not...they opted for the hard top rather than the convertible, which is perhaps coming in next year's budget.
