Dave - I think Maryland is pretty empty except for Rick's Frederick.  I'd
like to see Anne Arundel next.

As to existing data, what to do might depend
on whether it were streets or highways.  We wouldn't want to make a mess of
a carefully crafted street map.  If it's just highways, though, as it has
mostly been in Howard, Maryland, it turns out not to be much of an issue.
 Visually the roads that were already there appear much the same after the
TIGER upload as before.  When I get around to it, I delete the old or the
new one, keeping whichever seems better (usually the TIGER, unless it is just
wrong, because it connects to the other TIGER streets).

PS Hi neighbor Rick.
