But if Anne Arundel County voters don't approve the zoning referendum on November's baUot, the consequences are largely unknown. Call it the fog of slots — a persistent inability to accurately project the future because of Maryland's unpredictable history with gambling.  The easiest way to draw any conclusions, no matter how tenuous, is to start from the morning of Nov. 3 in case a majority of county voters decide against the referendum. The Maryland Constitution would still allow slots within two miles of Baltimore-Washington Parkway, Anne Arundel County would find itself once again without the zoning needed for a slots facility anywhere within those boundaries, and The Cordish Cos. would be (See SLOTS.

Overall incidents  By SCOTT DAUGHERTY Staff Writer  When dealing with an unruly subject last year, a county police officer was more likely to use other weapon at his disposal.  Officers were even more likely to use the dart-firing weapons — which use 50,000 volts of electricity to incapacitate a suspect — than their own hands, according to statistics released last week by the county Police Department.  In all, officers filed 71 reports in 2009 regarding their use of a Taser, compared to 63 reports regarding the use of their hands and feet, and 26 for the use of pepper spray.  County officials and several nationally recognized police experts last week hailed the statistics, which the county released Tuesday to The Capital in response  to a request under the Maryland Public Information Act. Upon reviewing the statistics. Col. James Teare Sr., coimty police chief, announced plans to post five years worth of annual reports on the department's website.  Amnesty International attributes the deaths of more than 330 people in the United States to officer-deployed Tasers. But experts said last week the devices are safer than many of the other options available to police, and Tasers should be used as an alternative to wrestling a subject to the ground or hitting a person with a baton.  a Taser than any "There is a very common perception  2005  0  65 47 21 6 19 2 1 0 161  2006  0 67 49 21 3 17 2 11 2  172  2007  31  64 33 11 8 14 6 5 3  175  2008  66  70 30 11 5 22 5 5 4 218  2009  71 64 26 14 5 19 1 12 0 187*  •There were 212 weapons used in 2009 in 187 incidents.

But that was before Robert Dudley got a promotion — and not just any promotion.  As of Friday, Dudley is the new chief executive officer of BP, the company that made international headlines for one of history's most catastrophic man-made environmental disasters. In April an offshore rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, gushing 4.9 million barrels of oil before engineers sealed it off three months later.  Tony Hayward had been the CEO and public face of BP. Now Dudley is in charge of the multibillion-doUar corporation, which faces a future of ecological restoration, financial reparations and rebranding.  And you think you have a hard job?
