Power outages show flaw in state's growth policies

The epic power outages have laid bare one of the fatal flaws of the state's growth policies for the Baltimore-Washington region: Our public infrastructure and services are inadequate to meet the demands of today's residents and workers.

We need to make today's Baltimore-Washington region more livable before we can even begin to think about a future megalopolis that would be more congested and more demanding of infrastructure and services than the one we already have.
