The people of Baltimore understand exactly how things work. It's you that do not. While it's true that the Mayor of Baltimore has the power to hire/fire the commissioner and the citizens of the city get to foot the bill for the department, the city has zero control over in department policy and oversight. Most of the parameters for police operations are a matter of state law and are controlled by the Maryland State General Assembly under the Public Local Laws of Baltimore City not the Baltimore City Charter and Codes. Because of that, the police commissioner is limited in who he can fire below the upper echelons of his command and what policy he can enact.
Reforms to the police are not decided alone by the representatives of the city but by all of the state representatives including districts that are over a hundred miles away and are subject to a possible veto by the governor not to mention the political in fighting and general BS that defines the state capital.
One of the many fights going on right now is a push to return control of the department back to the city.
I have a prescription for my allergy meds. Depending on the state, you can at least buy 3 boxes at time with a prescription. Some states supposedly allow you to buy a 90 day supply. Plus, it's an eligible expense if you have an HSA account.
Same here. I use Zyrtec D daily for allergies. Guess I better straighten up the house.
On a side note, you can get a prescription from your doctor for your Allegra-D which should allow you to at least buy 3 boxes at a time. I found it stupid that I had to go to the pharmacy every 11 days in order to buy a single 12 day supply of OTC allergy medication at a time so I asked my doctor about it.
The teen will get off once the "software" comes up with a negative match because we all know that the medicine will give him a "fuller" and "longer" ...... or at least that's what half the emails in my spam folder claim!
Actually, comparing it to drugs makes complete sense. In the 80s and 90s, the government successfully won the War on Drugs. So it only makes sense to apply the same philosophy to the War on Mike ... err, umm, I mean Piracy!
There is no way the cable companies will allow this. How do I know? I am currently an HBO subscriber and a Roku owner. I am also a Comcast subscriber. Comcast will NOT allow HBO to allow me to access my PAID for HBOGO account on my Roku. No rhyme, no reason - just no GO!
If they will not allow a paying subscriber of their system access a feature I am paying for on a specific device because they don't like it, what makes anyone think that they (big cable) are going to allow HBO to give access to a "cord cutter".
BWI is my home airport that I fly out of regularly. Shortly after 9/11, the airport had no photography signs at the checkpoints that stated the ban was enforced by COMAR 11 03.01.09 B (2). A while back, there was a discussion on flyertalk about the signs and how, thru an airport directive (BWI-300.3), the signs were being enforced under Maryland law, as a violation of said directive.
Last week, I noticed all the signs were covered up and another discussion on flyertalk confirmed that the airport is not enforcing the ban and the directive is no longer listed on the MAA's BWI Directive PASSUR list .
I guess nobody bothered to inform the TSA personnel.
