One in a series of profiles of Maryland delegates to the Republican National Convention JoAnn Fisher readily acknowledges she's a bit of an oddity in her Prince George's County community. She is, after all, a Republican. Registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by a ratio of 9-to-1 in the county in suburban Washington. She also has a different take on President Barack Obama than many of the delegates here at the Republican National Convention: As an African-American woman, she says, she's proud of the president and feels she can in some ways relate to him. But that's where her relationship with the Democrats ends.

Corralled by a ring of inflatable cushions near the back of Cadillac Ranch in the National Harbor sits Diablo, one of the state's few regularly operating mechanical bulls. On a typical Friday or Saturday night, hundreds of would-be cowboys sign a waiver and fork over $3 for a chance to test their bull-riding ability. Though a few experienced riders can stay on for as long as a minute, most last only 10 or 20 seconds, said Dathon Compton, the restaurant's general manager. But that doesn't stop them from trying.
