Let me throw in something about the Geniuses amongst us. I call them cons. Ed you are right about Wheaton. Bethesda Area, Hampden Lane Townhouses, pay zilch to live in the county and live in 1.6 million dollar homes, under nonprofits such as save the dogs. Then the file for Bankruptcy. I will give you citations,look up 500 Hampden Lane Bethesda. 2 years ago Chevy Chase,Glen Echo, and Potomac opted out of paying taxes,either by claiming business use of homes, or pooling tax breaks for energy upgrades. Now we have the grandparent dumping of New York City, and they get funded. It would be nice for those living and paying taxes here for 10,20,30,40,50 years to have access to what they and we paid for. Also, giving 18 and 20 year old kids from NY, affordable housing here in Bethesda is just wrong.What a racket. Some use our resources for what should be UMD on campus housing. The Ethics are scandalous.
