Elbert Gardner Jr. was in his basement apartment late Tuesday night when he heard his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend together in her bedroom. Gardner, who still shared the rental house with Lei Tyree Johnson on a quiet Annapolis street, grabbed his .38-caliber revolver from under a pillow and went upstairs, he told police. The 56-year-old Navy veteran shot Samuel Marshall Fowlkes Jr., 49, once in the head, then shot his 38-year-old former girlfriend once in the chest, charging documents say. On the way out of the bedroom, he ran into his ex-girlfriend's 12-year-old son, Anthony.

"You must be rich. " A grandfather who asked where I lived told me this, straight out. We were at the B&O Railroad Museum playground in Baltimore with our preschoolers, mine a grandnephew. I had unwisely confessed to living in Manhattan. After leaving Baltimore in my early 20s, I gradually, by incremental steps, rose from a one-room furnished basement apartment in ungentrified Brooklyn to one room in a "luxury," "pet friendly" high rise 10 minutes from Lincoln Center. It's across from a public housing project.

Lieberman, the latest Democrat to handshake his way through this eatery in search of the party's presidential nomination. Instead, he bundles up and heads out into the bone-chilling cold that has frozen nearby Lake Winnipesaukee, shielding his eyes against the blinding winter sun. "He's got a very nice, congenial persona, and I think he comes across as a very sincere politician, but I question his ability to carry through on his pledges," Space, 55, says of Lieberman.
