Thursday news roundup
Some idiot managed to drive his car onto the Metro tracks in Silver Spring, interrupting service for several hours, which probably made a couple people late.
Maryland's governor is withholding $650 million in payments to state agencies, and Prince George's County cut $50.5 million from its schools budget.
Also in PG County, the police mistakenly arrested three women in a murder case, and jailed them for three weeks, the latest in a long-running string of civil rights violations by the department.
D.C. police received an anonymous tip about the high school football star who was murdered for his sneakers last week, "describing the possible assailant as a black male in his late teens or early twenties, six feet tall with a slim build, wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans at the time of the shooting." All right, way to narrow it down. I think I might have seen that guy walking around.
But hey, when the world gets you down, at least you can read Jen Waters of the Washington Times presented by Home Depot, as she goes into pornographic detail about erecting gazebos. Great, because I really needed more stories about rich people wanking themselves off by building gaudy, unnecessary structures in their yards.
