All that I'm saying is that democracy hasn't gotten me a Whole Foods.
You can go to some HoCo political blogs for campaign coverage, but you come to HowChow for actual votes. I'm giving mine away . . . for a price. Straight up vote-buying. If politicians fill the right holes in the county's food options, I'll vote for anyone.
5. My vote for board of education.
4. My vote for county council.
We need bahn mi, the Vietnamese sandwiches so common in Arlington or Rockville. This is doable on the local level. Buy the bread at Bon Fresco. Slice some meats, pickle some vegetables. You could be a county leader and a sandwich empresario.
3. My vote for state senate.
Jamba Juice. The official drink of Mrs. HowChow's LA years. The smoothies can be breakfast, lunch or snack. Some of the gambling money could buy the franchise -- if you haven't used it all propping up horse racing.
2. My vote for county executive.
Lebanese Taverna. We'd love even the Rockville counter-service version. Mr. State-Wide Ambition could bring us some international flavor -- kabobs, breads, and spreads to complement Maiwand Kabob and that orange blossom lemonade.
1. My vote for governor.
Whole Foods. It's the big job, so we want the big store. Two words: Executive order. Wegmans may fill the spot in 2012, but a governor could shoehorn a gourmet store into Ellicott City.
