    I wonder why.

    Except for a very simple fact; we support the design and construction of high-speed ferrys and almost entirely in other parts of the world than the US. Have never had squat to do with the slow conventional ones - here or anywhere else - and never will.

So even though her store is in Lusby, I would wager that there will be literature, brochures, flyers, front and center on the counters promoting her store, offering discounts to adopting customers, etc etc etc. Profit motive? Yes. Blind to the pillaging of county taxpayers? Yes.

    Ahh, no. None of the above.
