I need to say this fairly fast because the task I have assigned myself -- to find the last un-angry man or woman in America -- looks like it's going to take much longer than I thought.I realized the magnitude of the problem last night, while reading through my diary entries from the weekend. In fact I am beginning to think that, like Diogenes who wandered the streets of Athens looking for an honest man, I may spend my remaining days in search of an un-angry person.Which is why I have decided I don't have time to write this column.

Tuesday morning in a coffee shop, I heard someone wonder why Brandon Finney, the Shock Trauma surgical technician who was shot to death Sunday night, had been standing near Lexington Market at such a late hour. What was he doing there at 11:30? The question suggested that anyone who ventured after hours near the city's historic market - notable for fresh fish and produce on the inside, and too many drug addicts on the outside - must be either up to no good or asking for trouble. But the answer, it turns out, was simple: Brandon Finney had been waiting for the bus. That's what most people do in Baltimore - the working, contributing, responsible people, that is, as opposed to the losers who degrade and debase the city with their guns and cowardice, with stupidity and recklessness.

HANOVER, Pa. -- Has anyone else noticed that teen-age boys in our society are particularly fierce, violent and angry? When I am watching TV, reading the newspaper, listening to the radio, surfing the Web or overhearing conversations on the street, I find myself constantly wondering, "Why is he so angry? Is this only a problem with my generation? With our culture? Can this fury all be traced to a boy's childhood?" Dr. Drew, co-host of my favorite radio program, "Loveline," would say, "Yes."

Take a minute and Google the term "Internal Revenue Service" or "IRS," and you will find no shortage of famous quotes from people who are fearful of it. The federal agency has been compared to the Gestapo, the Mafia and the Lord Almighty. Such is the power of the tax collector to strike terror into the hearts of the audited. But recent testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has conjured a new image for the IRS - clueless, bureaucratic, disorganized and technologically incompetent.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina - Outside Argentina's Congress building, protesters upset about a government freeze on bank deposits recently swarmed around lawmaker Franco Caviglia and threatened harm, forcing him to scamper into a bar for protection until police arrived. Hours earlier, other protesters surrounded an obscure congressional adviser and hurled insults and expletives at him. Also, former Planning Minister Roberto Dromi, who oversaw important privatization projects in the early 1990s, was met by angry citizens shouting threats when he stepped out of a car in downtown Buenos Aires.

When doctors told me that I was carrying a baby girl, I wept.Not out of joy. And not out of disappointment. But out offear.I was afraid that I did not have what it would take to teach agirl to navigate a world that was predisposed to defeat herbefore it had even met her.The irony in my reaction, of course, is that I was predisposedto be defeated before I had even met her.It is 10 years hence, and it is clear now that I was not givingJessie much credit, either....

After the murderous rampage of 22-year-old angry virgin Elliot Rodger in Santa Barbara Friday night, a guy took to Twitter to say that not all men shared his hatred of women and his determination to take vengeance for being ignored by them. Soon enough, other men were posting. Similar thoughts were collecting under #NotAllMen, using the hash-tag Twitter tool for aggregating conversations. Almost immediately, a young woman opened up her own comment stream under #YesAllWomen. No, not all men are guilty of misogyny, was her message.

I am appalled at the two candidates for the upcoming Primary Election in June, one in each of the two major parties in this county: a Republican and a Democrat. The Republican is County Executive David Craig. He ignored the needs and petitions of voters in the southwest corner of the county: Joppa and Edgewood, District A in not championing the purchase of the Joppatowne pool property that would have ultimately served all of District A not just Joppatowne. Instead, [he championed]

Residents of the Fells Prospect neighborhood have long grumbled about abandoned dog feces in their sidewalk tree pits. But when a recent community association newsletter advised members to, among other things, place pine cones or clippings from thorny plants in the pits to keep dogs out, some property owners saw red and said the suggestions were both harmful to pets and illegal. John Lam, a dog owner who's lived in the neighborhood -- which is near Fells Point and Butchers Hill -- for three years, said the association's January newsletter “made a point that a tremendous amount of people aren't picking up after their pets.

I called and waited over 80 minutes to get a website problem fixed on Maryland's online insurance exchange ("O'Malley to push emergency bill to provide retroactive health coverage," Jan. 3). I first called by Dec. 18 and was told I qualified for Medicaid. I applied for Medicaid and picked my insurance provider and waited for the approval. I received the approval and then waited for the Insurance company to contact me - and then nothing. I called back on Dec 20 and was told I did not qualify for Medicaid but I was approved for medical aid and to go through the list and pick my new Insurance company, which I could not do. The website would not allow me to pick a new provider since I had already chosen one. I called several times and was told it was a technical support Issue and they would call me to fix the website application.

Soccer season is in full swing. This year both my son and my daughter are playing in youth leagues, and between practices and games, we're doing soccer five days a week. I'm not complaining. Many have it worse, and I enjoy talking to other parents and watching my kids play. Though I have to confess, sometimes as a parent stuck on the sideline, it's frustrating because I look up from my phone, and I can see what my kid should be doing; she should be running toward the goal and waiting for a pass.

How long has it been since you've been angry? Not "irritated" or "annoyed" or even "frustrated" or "disappointed" -- especially not "disappointed" -- but purely, justifiably, outwardly, downright furious?If you're like most of us, you can't remember the last time. We women, most of us, still will do almost anything to avoid our own anger."What do I do when I'm angry? I have no idea. I don't get angry, I guess -- except at myself, of course," said an acquaintance last week, when I mentioned the "A" word.

Why is the nation more bitterly divided today than it's been in 80 years? Why is there more anger, vituperation and political polarization now than even during Joe McCarthy's anti-communist witch hunts of the 1950s, the tempestuous struggle for civil rights in the 1960s, the divisive Vietnam War, or the Watergate scandal? If anything, you'd think this would be an era of relative calm. The Soviet Union has disappeared and the Cold War is over. The civil rights struggle continues, but at least we now have a black middle class and even a black president.

Angry city residents shouted "Shame," "Unbelievable" and "We're fed up" at Baltimore's spending panel Wednesday for not stopping a water bill rate increase of nearly 42 percent over the next three years. They said they were mad at city leaders for giving big businesses multimillion-dollar tax breaks while forcing individuals to pay more to live in Baltimore. The Board of Estimates, which is controlled by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, postponed until next week a vote on whether to authorize the Department of Public Works to increase water bill rates by 15 percent in the fiscal year that starts Monday, followed by 11 percent rises in each of the next two fiscal years.
