The effort to allow citizens, regardless of sexual orientation, to serve in the U.S. military was legislated in 1993. Don't Ask Don't Tell prohibited the military from barring gay, bisexual or lesbian personnel from serving but the law also created a legacy of secretive behavior that frequently led to discrimination within the ranks.

The U.S. Census lists Maryland as the 5th densest state in the nation and projections figure that one million people will be added by the year 2035. Governor Martin O’Malley unveiled a master plan in April to curb the suburban sprawl that comes with such population explosion, called Plan Maryland.

Juan Williams was fired by NPR last October after he made a remark about Muslims on the Fox News Channel.

Williams joins Dan in Studio A.
