A.M. Buzz: Ban violence against 90-year-olds

Good morning.

If you make it to your 90s — or even your 80s — you ought to be immune from violent crime, IMHO. Tis not so, unfortunately, Thelma Steele, 92, was found slain in her Forestville home Monday

Two deaths, no answers: A man was killed in Northwest Washington near Meridian Hill Park early this morning, and a woman was killed in Beltsville overnight. Details are sketchy in both incidents.

From a video shot by Prince George’s County Hospital workers.

Religious discrimination at the airports: A civil rights lawyer says the no-fly cases he handles for his Muslim American clients are so similar as to be the same, and the wrong placement of these American citizens on the no-fly list denies them their basic rights.

That’s it for the A.M. Buzz this morning; we’ll see you all day on PostLocal.
