Maryland is the best state in the union. [JTA]

• A company is being sued for allegedly manufacturing electric, kosher-for-Shabbat locks that can be opened with a magnet. [NYT]

• At the Conservative confab in Las Vegas, Sue Fishkoff finds concern for institutions’ futures. [JTA]

• Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon argues that violent Palestinian anti-Semitism does not find its roots in the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories. [WSJ]

Tastefully named train, wouldn’t you say?

Marc, as a Marylander, wish I could share your unbridled enthusiasm for the state and its legislature. Alas, the House of Delegates ran for cover and did not pass this year’s equality marriage bill, and the Senate has just ran a procedural maneouver to stall the gender equality bill that was passed by 60% in the House.
