I do hope the injured worker recovers. It's a shame that for the sake of rushing to complete the project for the "Grand Opening" it was worth it. It's Cordish's project. He pushed like there was no tomorrow.

I know Kevin Kamenetz's inspectors have turned a blind eye about sediment controls so I wouldn't think it's any different for the rest of his friends' projects. Ride around the job during the next few rains to see for yourself. It's worse at the bigger project on Dulaney Valley across from Goucher. It's always the golden rule. Let's hope no other worker is hurt in the rush to open.
