For the fifth-grade boys of Cub Scout Den 2, Pack 737 at the Norwood School in Bethesda, an overnight stay at the National Aquarium was, as their den leader Nanci Gosnell put it, "too cool to pass up." The 10 children arrived at the Inner Harbor attraction Friday afternoon, dined on lasagna and brownies, walked across the top of the shark tank, toured the rain forest exhibit after the aquarium had closed for the night, and camped out in sleeping bags next to the dolphins. But when they left Saturday morning to head home in two Cadillac Escalades parked spaces apart at the Landmark garage on Gay Street, the chaperons and children discovered that someone had broken out both vehicles' windows, ransacked the interiors and stolen an iPod and a GPS device.

On the night of Jan. 31, Theron Richardson heard a noise in front of his Old Frederick Road house and looked outside to see two men wearing ski masks kicking and beating a young fellow from the neighborhood.Richardson rapped hard on his window. The two men looked up, waved him off disdainfully, and went back to their beating. Richardson realized he knew their victim. He was Jada Lokeman, a family friend he'd known since he was a child. And he saw that he had blood all over his face, and his eyes were going back in his head.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Seventeen-year-old Maan Ganawi came home from computer class Friday afternoon and found his mother dead on the living room sofa, shot three times. He did not call the police, because the phones were still not working. Even if they had been, who was there to call? There had been no functioning police department in Baghdad since before the war. Instead, crumpled on the floor, he did all he could do. He cried out: "My mother is dead!" Now, as he numbly goes through the three-day mourning ritual, he is plotting how to avenge the death of Zainab Mohammad, 36, a striking woman who, he says, hobnobbed with Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's sons, Odai and Qusai.
