In 1952, Maryland's two kingdoms were joined when the original, 4.3-mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge - officially called the William Preston Lane Jr. Memorial Bridge - replaced two ferries that took two hours to cross the bay from a point near Annapolis to the Eastern Shore. Not surprisingly, traffic jams quickly ensued, and by 1973 a three-lane parallel structure was opened to relieve the pressure. Later in the 1970s there was talk about building two more Chesapeake Bay bridges - a Northern Bay Bridge from Miller Island near Edgemere in Baltimore County to Tolchester Beach in Kent County, and a Southern Bay Bridge from Lusby in Calvert County to Taylors Island in Dorchester County.

The preposition "of" instantly changed to a simple "a," and I coulda sworn a buncha superlatives entered my brain, because as I closed my windows, I thought: "I'm gonna freeze if I don't put on a sweata, what is this, Antarctica?" It's what happens whenever I return to the state where I attended college, next to the land where I grew up, Long Island.
