The Un-Free State

Email Print

Last week a Baltimore Sun columnist celebrated statism run amok in Maryland (“The Free State”) by entitling his column “Liberal Paradise.”  He wasn’t joking.  Yesterday the Baltimore tv and radio media were besides themselves with joy in announcing over and over that Governor Martin O’Malley was about to sit down to sign 153 new laws now that the state assembly has gone home for the year.   O’Malley must not have slept a wink last night, however, since news of that stabbing of 14 people in Texas emerged AFTER the state legislative session had just ended.  As an emailer says, Martin O’Malley is bound to be the first governor to advocate new broad and sweeping knife-control laws.
