Raymond Taylor was released from MCAC, aka Supermax. This is where Maryland houses death row inmates, prisoners who've been violent while incarcerated and other similarly delightful characters. The fact that they could screw up like that and just release him is mind-boggling. This may be even dumber than when John Thanos was accidentally released to go on his killing spree. Heads need to roll.

I guess no one has thought to go look in the bushes behind Tammie Johnson's house to look for Mr. Taylor, because that is probably where he is. I hope the state was nice enough to give Ms. Johnson a head's up with a quick phone call. He has 3 life sentences, this is a man with nothing to lose.

Chubbies lost their booze license for a year :(

Just their booze license or their ability to operate? Maybe they will stay in business and serve vegetable juice. Ppatin, this way you can enjoy the dancing girls AND get healthy.

Like I said, I don't patronize strip clubs. I hate to see a small business get attacked like that though.
