Walter H. Plosila of Batelle, the institute that operates a research center in Harford County, said Maryland is one of the top states in the country when it comes to the biosciences, largely because of the concentrations of companies in Howard and Montgomery counties.

Surveys indicate that, upon their entrance to prison, most inmates had less than an eighth grade education and lived in an impoverished environment. Poverty and lack of education are not excuses for crime, because many poor and "undereducated" people do not commit crimes.
