Uncharacteristic silence from Silverman

The fact that a candidate for county executive would avoid a great media opportunity makes people wonder if he's got something to hide.

People familiar with County Councilman Steve Silverman know how much he loves the cameras. But today they're talking about how uncharacteristically quiet he's been since the Inspector General released his report on the Seven Locks School scandal.

Silverman is one of the biggest figures behind the scandal. He even trashed Seven Locks-area citizens in the Washington Post as racists and bigots for opposing the Seven Locks/Kendale plan. Now he's nowhere to be seen.

Maybe, like Superintendent Weast, he's just too ill this week.
