Homicides in Baltimore reached their lowest monthly total in three decades in March, a stark turnaround that police cautiously attributed to better patrols and intelligence-sharing after a bloody start to the year. Seven people were killed in March, the lowest monthly total since June 1983. The city has recorded fewer than 10 killings in a month just four times since 1970. March ended on an ominous note — with five shootings Monday, including one man who died after walking into a hospital with gunshot wounds.

Say this much for "The Forsaken": It's efficient. It manages to work boobs and blood into the very first shot. The bloody chests are not the last ones we'll see in "The Forsaken." By my newspaper's count, a total of nine breasts are displayed (there's a side view) in the movie. I lost track of the bloodletting, but I can assure you that there's plenty of that, too.

MIAMI -- It's my job to have something to say. They pay me to tease shades of meaning from social and cultural issues, to provide words that help make sense of that which troubles the American soul. But in this moment of airless shock when hot tears sting disbelieving eyes, the only thing I can find to say, the only words that seem to fit, must be addressed to the unknown author of this suffering. You monster. You beast. You unspeakable bastard. What lesson did you hope to teach us by your coward's attack on our World Trade Center, our Pentagon, us?

Police released 911 dispatch tapes Monday that reveal how residents in a Germantown neighborhood tried to draw attention to a bizarre scene where police say two toddlers were killed by their mother and another woman in an exorcism last week. "The mother came out, she reported that she had something going on and she didn't want her baby to be in danger in the house," a man who had called 911 at 10:14 p.m. on Thursday told a dispatcher. The man could be heard talking to two women he said were attacking him as he reported the incident.

Nearly two years have passed since the last U.S. combat troops associated with the war effort left Iraq. And on balance, it has been a very difficult two years, with a substantial increase in violence and much worse relations across Sunni-Shia lines than at any time since before the surge of 2007/2008. That said, there is reason for hope in Iraq - though it will require substantially better decision-making by Iraqi politicians than has been witnessed in the recent past. Three chief factors account for the reversals in Iraq.

In the shadow of the McCulloh Homes, Shirley Bush watched as a crowd of worshipers poured out of cars and buses and gathered in front of Sharp St. Memorial United Methodist Church to pray in defiance of the week's violence, and remembered her own son who was killed by gunfire in April. Her son Ralph Timmons Jr. and her 11-year-old grandson were shot when two men burst into his home in a robbery attempt, according to police. The boy is doing well, Bush said, but she struggles to find meaning in all of the recent deaths.

On Thursday morning, I read a Page 1 article in The Baltimore Sun that featured Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake saying how sad she was about the “state of our community.” She was referring to the shocking run of 29 shootings and 10 deaths in a six-day span in Baltimore. The article also included quotes from Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts saying the department's initial “messaging” about the crimes had been “terrible.” I don't cover crime, but I do cover messaging.

Brad Knight, Burgess' football coach, remembers a bright young man with a broad smile and a desire to help others. "Gervontae was one of those kids who soaked everything in. He wanted to be a great teammate and wanted to learn," said Knight, who coached Burgess at the Clarinda Academy.

Juanita Walker stood just steps from where her son was killed two days earlier and addressed a crowd of at least 100 people, sobbing and yelling to be heard. "Y'all young people, you think because you're young that it might not be your time," she told the crowd at a candlelight vigil Sunday for Andre Witherspoon, 27. She said she spoke to her son 20 minutes before he was shot, just after 1 p.m. Friday in the 900 block of Ducatel St. in the Reservoir Hill neighborhood. "We all get caught up. The environment told him, tricked him, made him believe that he had to go this way," she said.
