Maryland's State House is under attack! (by someone, somewhere, probably)

We kinda sorta heard that one person might wanna paint the Maryland State House magenta.  

As Wikipedia notes:

Magenta (/məˈdʒɛntə/) is a color that is variously defined as purplish-red, reddish-purple, purplish-pink, or mauvish-crimson. On computer screens, it is made by mixing equal amounts of blue and red.On color wheels of the RGB (additive) and CMY (subtractive) color models, it is located midway between red and blue. It is the complementary color of green. It is one of the four colors of ink used in color printing and by an inkjet printer, along with cyan, yellow, and black, to make all the other colors. The tone of magenta used in printing is called "printer's magenta" (Magenta (CMYK)).

Magenta was first introduced as the color of a new aniline dye called fuchsine, patented in 1859 by the French chemist François-Emmanuel Verguin. Its name was changed the same year to magenta, to celebrate a victory of the French and Sardinian army at the Battle of Magenta on June 4, 1859, near the Italian town of that name.

We, the undersigned, urge our leaders to reject that one person who wants to maybe have us paint our State House magenta, and we urge our leaders to stand up for a State House that unites all Marylanders and stays the white it is now.
