These are the droids we're looking for

Weak. Not only does Silver Spring have a shortage of standard mailboxes, but we weren't even given a single one of the new new R2D2 boxes. I figured Silver Spring was large enough to warrant one, but that I just hadn't come across it yet. It turns out I was wrong. Not only did Silver Spring not receive one, but the whole of Montgomery County got shut out. Hell, the entirety of the Maryland suburbs was excluded. According to the official list at starwars.com, the only city in Maryland to get one was Baltimore. By now its probably already been stolen and melted down for the steel.

Heck, I was in some BFE town out west last week and even they were deemed worthy of hosting a postal droid. Despite there being a dozen in the DC metro area, they all went to DC and the Virginia suburbs. I guess we'll just have to settle for making our own.

First there was Greedo shooting first, then Jar Jar Binks and now this?? Burn in hell Lucas!!

This is what I've been saying all along...Maryland is "red headed step child" of the D.C. metro area. We always get the short end of the stick in positive economic terms. But guess who donated the land for capital? That's right Maryland. Yet the greatest beneficiaries of being in proximity to the capital are Virginia and D.C. and we’re always shunned by them. WTF?

Do you know how many people (particularly from Pennsylvania) think the land for D.C. came from Virginia? Do you know how many people think the Potomac river is part of Virginia or is equally shared by both states?

Not only that, Virginia DID donate land (Alexandria) but then took it back in 1846 because they wanted slavery to remain legal in that area.

Add to that Synder and D.C. gov wants to demolish FedEx field and build a new Football stadium in D.C.

Let's not forget that the majority of that land was in Gorgeous Prince George's county.
