The question posted Friday on The Herald-Mail's website was: During a campaign stop this week in Hagerstown, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley said his administration has made Maryland better than it was four years ago. Do you agree?
Yes: 141 votes (18 percent)
No: 659 votes (82 percent)
o "Whether or not Maryland is 'better' today than it was four years ago is simply a matter of individual perspective. It might be going great for O'Malley, while for many other the opposite is true."
o Unemployment = higher, taxes = higher, public services = worse, quality of life = worse. My grade for (O'Malley) was a "F." By the way, I would not have graded (former) Maryland Gov. Robert Ehrlich any better with the only caveat being that he didn't raise taxes."
