    No, there will always be hard working, risk taking entrepreneurs, so you will always be able to suckle off them with your union and liberal ass Bretheran.
    Just like ticks and flea will not kill all the critters in the forest.

    Just less of them

Heck with O'Malleys gas tax increase I'll need shorter trips. CH is so centrally located but we all have to go 15-20 miles to get to really nice places to eat and shop.
    Tequilla Grill has been as nice addition for a place to eat, but if you dont like Mexican food then its not your place to eat.
    The Farmers Market is a dump and eyesore, but unfortunatly its never going to go anywhere, maybe a remoldel would help.
    Fatratcat I do have to disagree about the traffic, evening rush hour has changed down here since the bypass was built, now everyone heading south have no stoplights for almost 7 miles till they hit the one at McKays at Mohawk, then it starts to backup from Golden Beach Rd. through the one at Oaks Rd. to Mohawk. Lots of people now are jumping off at Lighthouse and coming down Charlotte Hall Rd. thank goodness they put that 4 way stop sign at Oaks, or it would be hard to get across from Oaks. That rush hour problem is only about 2-3 hours a workday then things go back to normal as long as its accident free. Then Saturday there is some more traffic with the market and people heading to Waldorf and beyond to shop.

    You make sense. I think I just have a higher bar for what I consider traffic. To me, CH isn't much of a snarl...Brandwyine at 0700 on weekday...now that's a cluster! Just curious, why do you think the junk sale/flea market isn't going anywhere anytime soon?

    Yes Brandywine is a snarl, Im glad Im retired now and dont have to go through there every work day, and luckily for me I split off and headed to Upper Marlboro up 301. Its bad there most of the tme now, the backups at the light at Brandywine Rd. and 373 are bad even on the weekends.
    My reason for saying that the markets not going anywhere anytime soon is because its owned by one of the good ole boys, Ben Burroughs, he owns alot of the land in Charlotte Hall or did at onetime and even if he should pass on, (he's no spring chicken) it will proably be passed down through family.

    Another reason the junk market isn't going anywhere is that Ben and Jarboe have a serious dislike going on. Ben won't do anything to the junk market because then he'd by default be improving access to Jarboes (closed) lumber mill. He refuses to do anything that could help Jarboe.

    Safeway was just a rumor, sorry. If they do look at that site they will let me know.
