Or maybe the Great Seal, whose prominence was recently revived by free translations of the old Tuscan motto Fatti Maschii, etc.But just as recognizable is the Stetson hat worn by the Maryland State Police for nearly four decades.

Martin O'Malley's 2012 income of $150,000 was just a fraction of more than $2 million that Terps football coach Randy Edsall and men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon each pulled in, according to an updated state salary database made available by Maryland officials under a Public Information Act request.
