July 3

The weekend's murders are neatly tied up in the Sun's Metro Digest: an unidentified man (#134) was shot to death yesterday in South Baltimore's Cherry Hill neighborhood, and 22-year-old James Maurice Coates was fatally shot in Annapolis early Saturday morning. (WBAL offers 37 additional words about Coates' death.)

Yesterday's Metro Digest featured a triple homicide in PG County (which might be related to MS13) and the decomposed body of an unidentified man under a bridge in Pikesville. (WBAL nearly tripled their coverage of this one with a whopping 84 word story.)

This swell guy not only beats women, he kills kittens too.

Testimony is scheduled to begin today in the re-trial of Adan Canela and Policarpio Espinoza, the two men accused of murdering three children in May, 2004.

There's a riot goin' on.

Graffiti "artists" even less talented than Oricl have defaced a war memorial in Medfield.

You know you live in Baltimore when you have to read this headline three times before you understand there were no crackpipes or hookers involved: "Crack Found In Shuttle Fuel Tank"

Chuck, you're fabulous! Having a great time in Bethany! Some teenager yelled the 'f' word in front of my daughter and I told him to watch his language and he apologized and looked scared.

ps. I'm going to go put #s by the murders b/c I'm trying to keep track.

I assumed somebody put some crack in a waterproof bag and put it in the tank.
