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

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.
