Gangs in Howard County?

    I have thought about this blog for some time.  Normally I am looking for information that highlights the wonderful aspects of our community.  After all we have chosen to live in this community because it has so many good features.  Close to DC and Baltimore.  Wonderful schools.  Diverse population.  Just about any type of restaurant you could want.  The hesitation I had in doing this blog is that it may be perceived as portraying Howard County as an unsafe place which I don't personally feel.  But I would be naive if I didn't recognize the signs of gangs in our community.
       Recent articles in the Columbia Patch have mentioned the existence of these gangs.  The pictures in this blog are from areas in which I run.
       I am no expert on gang tagging symbols but the pictures seem to bare the markings of tagging from gangs.

   Blog party tonight Tuesday, Feb 26th, from 5:30 - 7:30 at Union Jack's Columbia.  This is a fun way for bloggers and blog readers to meet and enjoy some good conversation.

P.S. 1

    Join us for Mickey’s action-packed adventures as he flies around the world!  Mickey starts his journey in the Magic Kingdom, where he meets up with all of your favorite princesses, and then takes to the skies for further excitement with stops around the world including stops in New York (Broadway and The Rockettes), Scotland (Brave), England (Battle of the Boy Bands), India (Bollywood), China (Chinese Dance) and Korea, where . . . you guessed it . . . Mickey goes crazy over the latest fad, Gangnam Style!
