A trail of stolen cigarettes led county police to a Glen Burnie motel where two men were arrested on charges of breaking into a Glen Burnie restaurant and carryout establishment early yesterday. Liquor and lottery tickets were also stolen from Crab Towne USA, but it was the trail of cigarette packs that showed officers the way to the nearby Forest Motel. The stolen goods were recovered from the motel room, police said. "It was like Hansel and Gretel with those cigarettes," said Crab Towne manager Barbara Colburn, referring to the fairy tale in which the children leave trails of pebbles and bread crumbs to find their way home.

Just last week, I climbed out on a limb to announce that "Homeland" was officially out of the woods and back on the safe side of the proverbial shark. Then this week happened. By the end of episode nine, I felt like Dana crying in her motel room: “Just promise me I'll never have to see you again…” Episode nine finally gave viewers the moment that this entire season has been building toward: the reunion of Carrie and Brody. And I have to admit that pretty-much everything about this episode was terrible.

Editorial from The Aegis | March 5, 2013
It's a piece of legislation that should have been approved decades ago. Actually, at one point it was approved, but then it was repealed. It's been introduced for consideration by the Maryland General Assembly in this year's session, but, as has been the case in years past, it doesn't have unanimous support from the contingent of delegates and senators representing Harford County, so it is but a curiosity. The legislation that's nominally up for consideration would give local governments in Harford County the authority to levy a tax that could benefit the county tremendously, even though very few people living in Harford County would ever pay it. It is, however, a tax people who live in Harford County almost certainly pay whenever they travel and end up staying overnight anywhere, but Harford County.
