If faces on the light rail ride this morning were any sort of accurate indication, most readers are, at best, blinking at this article through a rather dense fog of celebratory hangover, so without further verbosity: || ONLINE TRENDS || Super Bowl (NFL, Ravens, Joe Flacco, #SB47, #Champions)

For homeowner Michael G. Curry, it was the beautiful city views that drew him to trade a 40-room Guilford mansion for a three-bedroom condominium in HarborView Tower. "No matter where you are in the unit, you see the skyline, you see the water -- even in the master bath," says Curry, who purchased the unit about five years ago and has completely renovated it from top to bottom, removing walls to better configure the space. The condo, one of the few three-bedroom models available at HarborView, has an open floor plan with multiple rooms offering city and Inner Harbor views, including the living area, the dining room and the master bedroom.

Most of the rituals are gone now, although I still catch myself staring at the yellow Lands' End short jacket she hung on the closet door in the foyer before she left that Tuesday morning, Sept. 11, 2001. She was on her way to Dulles to board American Airlines Flight 77. Perhaps it was an omen, a kind of warning for me to use caution in the days ahead. We were to be married Dec. 22. And maybe it was just a jacket she forgot in haste. It now hangs in my bedroom closet, not in among the rows of stuff but out where I can see it and be reminded that caution has now become one of the rituals I live by. Others I have learned to let go in order to heal.

The killing last week of a Hampstead woman, the apparent victim of domestic violence, has local authorities reviewing procedures and questioning whether more could have been done.Members of Patricia A. Titus' family say the system clearly failed the 40-year-old mother of two boys, Tyler, 2, and Taylor, 11 months.They blame the courts, police and family protective service agencies for failing to act swiftly in putting a halt to harassment and threats by her husband that began more than 18 months ago.But local authorities say that under Maryland law, proper procedure was followed.

One of the first questions police officers asked Denise Cherry when they came to help her distraught husband was if there were any guns inside the couple's Hamilton apartment. No, she said emphatically.But she forgot about the 16-gauge shotgun tucked in the back of the bedroom closet -- a gift of more than a decade ago.Police said Baron Michael Cherry, a 41-year-old mentally disturbed man who frustrated his wife by refusing to take his medication, used the bolt-action shotgun to fatally shoot a veteran police lieutenant in the back Wednesday afternoon.
