A very sad morning in Maryland

There is really no other way to put it: Today stinks.

Across the state this morning, Marylanders have awoken to one depressing story after another.

There’s the mother in Kensington who apparently killed her 13-year-old son, then herself, a tale told gently this morning by my
Ben Barnhard
colleague Dan Morse. Mom: Margaret F. Jensvold, a well known psychiatrist. Her son: Ben Barnhard, a special needs boy who recently lost more than 100 pounds at a camp for overweight kids.

In Fort Washington, a man and a woman were found murdered in their home this morning on Hickory Drive. Police are just beginning their investigation. And in Charles County, a 3-year-old girl died in a house fire. News outlets are reporting that firefighters couldn’t get to the girl in time.

And today will get better, right? Right?
