Ehrlich dishes on bracelets, Silly Bandz

Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., the former Maryland delegate, U.S. representative and, of course, governor, wears a Silly Band. (For those of you not in the know, Silly Bandz is the plural. And that's how the rubber bands shaped like dinosaurs, pop stars and cartoon characters are generally worn -- several, dozens, at a time.) The Republican gubernatorial candidate, however, just wears the one. He visited The Daily Record for an interview this week and as the questions were wrapping up, one of the editors asked about the bracelets visible below the cuff of his shirt. The question led to the most somber stretch of the interview with the normally affable Ehrlich.
