In preparation for the devastating effects of the Bronrott-Lee-Frosh-O'Malley tax increases, Governor Martin O'Malley has welcomed Maryland residents to shop at a state-run store. Here, the poor and working families can purchase surplus and used goods left over from the state government. Can't pay your rent anymore, and you've lost your high-speed internet? Bang out a quick note to your landlord on that nifty 1950 typewriter. But true to the new Jimmy Carter spirit of sacrifice, pain, and taxpayer repentence in Annapolis, even the state store is going to close soon! So hurry in, and do some holiday shopping Peter Franchot-style. "Wait a minute, Peter, I'm the governor!" "No, I am." "Just because you have power equal to me, doesn't mean you're the governor." "Yes it does, Martin."
Maryland's surplus property warehouse is at 8037 Brock Bridge Rd. in Jessup. It is open to the public 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 301- 596-1080.
