Katie Medley is in the hospital, having joyously given birth to her first child, baby Hugo, while one floor away the new father, Caleb Medley, lies in an induced coma after being blasted by the heavily armed gunman who attacked a crowded theater in Aurora, Colo., last week. While the shooter was stockpiling guns and ammunition, the Republican party and Maryland Rep. Andy Harris were right there fighting any attempt to limit his ability to buy thousands of rounds of ammo along with oversize magazines for his semiautomatic weapon.

After a two-week break, our favorite fairytale drama is back and luckily things have changed. Aside from the premiere, "Into the Deep" has been the only episode this season to not have character flashbacks. This was great in terms of plot momentum and I hope it continues because it will make my recaps less complicated to write. The Walking Dead Remember that giant beanstalk where Emma left Captain Hook to rot? We find out Hook made it out alive, except Cora is not happy with him. She doesn't have time for Hook's games and accuses him of betrayal, saying that she'll have to complete her journey to Storybrooke alone.

AURORA, Colo. - When people ask Mayor Paul E. Tauer where he's from, he uses "the D-word," even though his hometown is larger than Orlando, Fla., or Birmingham, Ala., or Newark, N.J. "We're overshadowed by the fact that we're immediately adjacent to what I always refer to as our suburb to the west - Denver," says Tauer, who has run Aurora for 14 years. Aurora is the biggest city in the United States you've probably never heard of, a city defined by what it is not. It is not Denver. Denver is over there.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Arie Luyendyk wasn't interested in sitting around and waiting for someone else to make a move; he had been subjected to too much drama during last year's time trials for the Indianapolis 500.

Sitting there in an Arapahoe County District Court room with his bright orange-red hair, his eyes downcast and manner withdrawn, James Eagan Holmes didn't have much to say in his first court appearance Monday morning. There was precious little to reveal what could possibly have caused the 24-year-old graduate student in neuroscience to kill a dozen people and wound 58 others in a crowded Colorado movie theater last week, as police allege. There is no rational justification for such behavior, of course, and even knowing whether it was the result of delusion or sickness, madness or uncontrollable rage probably won't produce much comfort for the victims, their families or their fellow Americans.

What happens now - if it hasn't already - is that we adapt to another form of insanity. We add movie theaters to the list of places where random violence might erupt. Some of us look for online tutorials in how to survive a mass shooting at the cinema. Others, taking no chances, get guns and permits to carry them. "No place is safe," I heard a retired Marine say the other day. There are too many guns - almost one for every American by now - and too many people with untreated mental illness.

Typically, Orioles first-round draft pick Kevin Gausman tries to hide the fact that he's from Aurora, Colo., the site of Friday's tragic movie theater shooting. “I say that I'm from Centennial, [Colo.], because Centennial's a little nicer of an area,” the 21-year-old pitcher said in a phone interview Friday evening. But after 12 people were killed at a screening for the new Batman movie about a 15-minute drive from his home, Gausman said he became a proud Auroran. The newfound hometown pride was the result of a very stressful day in his life.

A Lehman spokesman said yesterday that the company closed a regional operating center in Gaithersburg last month.
