Maryland has about 80,000 horses on 587,000 acres -- 10% of the state's land, more horse per square mile than any state, the industry says.

424 Accident (Updated)

Two women were critically injured in a head-on collision Saturday morning on Route 424 in Davidsonville, police said. 
Around 9 a.m., a 20-year-old woman driving a 2007 Mercury Milan westbound near Rutland Road swerved over the yellow line "for no obvious reason" and hit a 2008 Subaru Legacy driving eastbound, said Anne Arundel Police spokesman Lt. Ryan Frashure.
Police have identified the driver of the Mercury as Shelby Neff of Bowie.
The driver of the Subaru, whom police have identified as Cheryle Holmes, 38, of Lothian, was said to be conscious at the scene. Neff was flown to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, and Holmes was taken to Prince George's Hospital Center, police said. 
Neff remained in critical condition Monday morning, a hospital spokeswoman said.

As of late Monday morning, Holmes' condition had been upgraded to serious, a Prince George's Hospital Center spokeswoman said.
A preliminary investigation indicates the primary cause of the crash appears to be driver error on the part of Neff, police said. An investigation by the police's Traffic Safety Section remains ongoing.
Any charges are pending review by the county state's attorney's office, police said.

Redistricting Proposed

From The Maryland Reporter:
     The editorial board of the Washington Post urges the state legislature to change the way it redistricts. writing that for the first time in years, Maryland has a real opportunity to shed its grotesquely gerrymandered electoral districts, for both Congress and the state legislature, and replace them with maps drawn by an independent commission whose purpose would be to elevate the interests of voters over those of insider politicians. Incumbent Democrats, who rule the roost in the status quo, are threatening to block just such a change, in the form of a constitutional amendment proposed Tuesday by Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican. They would be foolish to do so.

    If you are not familiar with the the shape and location of  our district 33,  you should look it up.
