    1. Surprise, surprise. Another week begins with more irrelevant and infantile posts from No Clue. Did you ever go back and read the Wikipedia article YOU posted about the boundaries of Southern MD. You know the one that said PG and Anne Arundel were only SOMETIMES considered part of Southern MD and then only PORTIONS of PG and Anne Arundel?? The link YOU posted debunked your own comment (one that had nothing to do with anything as usual)! Priceless.

  1. 1) Southern Maryland Hospital is in P.G. County.

    2) Upper Marlboro is listed as “one of the oldest still-standing towns in Southern Maryland”.

    3) When I was growing up in Southern P.G. County it was always called “Southern Maryland” too. That’s because it IS a part of Southern Maryland.

    1. Thank you for confirming that all of PG is not part of Southern Maryland. I’ve been a Southern MD resident for almost 40 years. No one I’ve ever met who has lived here longer than me has ever included PG or Anne Arundle (in whole or in part) as part of Southern MD.

      1. You’re a absolute hypocrite!!!! You said none of pg and Anne arundel is part of southern Maryland!!! Now you agree that it is?? You’re a freaking moron

  2. P.S. Anyone who gets their “facts” from Wikipedia is often getting poor information.

    Hint: I know the person who wrote the Wikipedia article about Southern Maryland (the part with the total BS that PG County is only “sometimes” part of Southern Maryland). 1) The guy is from Ohio, 2) he did not grow up here 3) he won’t let anyone else correct his mistakes in the article.

      1. Many Wikipedia articles are controlled by editors with opinions— who camp out on them. They treat Wikipedia rules like a chess game— and use the rules to shut down anyone who disagrees with them.

        Sorry to rain on anyones parade but I’m from southern P.G. County too and we always called it Southern Maryland. Only the southern half of PG is southern Maryland, though. Not northern half.
