    Marc:

    Thanks for this important show. As a lawyer, I am truly shocked at the “fix” that the Maryland State Police proposes for their surveilance. It’s a scary thing when the power structure says to keep your lawyer away.

    So glad to have you back on the air. We need you.

    Peace, Love and Understanding,
