The genesis of the "Ding-Dong" ad is really quite simple to understand: Bad Jennifer made little Blaine feel mad. Little Blaine waited until Jennifer was gone and the coast was clear before retaliating.
The ad gives us outsiders some idea of the level of maturity and professionalism of the people who have been running the City of Frederick these past several years. We can hope that the situation will improve with the new administration, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Personally, I'm glad the News-Post ran the ad. It was very revealing.
