Since when do the adults in Prince George County need a babysitter. Are the citizens really in need of a nanny state. I would suggest that the government spend a little more time thinking of how to put itself out of business. There must be some more places where we can make cuts to reduce not only taxes but governmental interference in our private lives.Personally I am offended by this proposal and any other that tells me that I have no common sense but apparently must pay some other idiot to tell me how to live my life. Please tell your representatives to back off and butt out! No pun intended.

With their proposed city wide restriction of using tobacco products on city owned property, Bowie is considering a class act. They're a community with above average college graduattion rates and a strong voice on local and world events. I suport their effort with any and all restriction on tobacco usage.

Are you by chance one of the horse people living in Davidsonville, Md?
Wow - they sure have some beautiful horse farms in that area.
Do you know that horses can suffer from a form of COPD? It can be a killer.

Do you know which US astronaut grew up in Bowie Md? He still stops by and helps his dad run a gas station there. Great guy, the kind of person every town needs. I could give you his name but that is above my pay scale. Your looking it up will be good for you.-LOL-
