Maryland: The Fat State

2:40 PM -- A busy legislative agenda in the Old (Waist-) Line State, according to BaltimoreSun.com. Among laws enacted today are the following:

  • Designating walking as the "official state exercise" of Maryland. Del. William A. Bronrott of Montgomery County, sponsor of the measure, said walking is "preventative medicine." A similar Bronrott-sponsored bill passed the Assembly in 2003 but was vetoed by then-Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.

  • Designating the Smith Island cake as the "official state dessert."
Former Governor Ehrlich, I believe, favored "waddling" as the official state exercise.
