WE BET ROGER BERLINER IS PISSED: Yes, the McMansion-fighting County Councilman would be chagrined to hear that Maryland has the second-highest percentage of "Starter Castles" (homes with four bedrooms or more) in the nation. Only Utah, with its high number of large Mormon families, could manage to beat us. We're left wondering: is the bedroom boom related to another boom in the bedroom statewide?

"You may have slower speeds, but you could pick up more people along the way." - Michael D. Madden, Purple Line project managerLANGLEY PARK, NEXT FOUR STOPS: Downcounty neighborhoods like Woodside and Clifton Park may eventually have Purple Line stops to call their own as the State continues to tweak plans for the proposed transitway, adding potential stops and dropping unpopular alignments. And naysayers like one Meir Wolf - who got the town of Chevy Chase to fund a $250,000 study opposing the Purple Line - are being quieted as the Maryland Transit Administration realizes how many people might just use the line when completed.

Is it because people don't know enough about the Purple Line to be upset? And is that a bad thing?
