Congressman Condit is not a suspect. He plays one on TV. Baltimoreans are losing jobs and buying homes at a record pace, and no economist has explained the correlation. Lucky old Maryland. It hit the Lottery, bigtime. Straights want to amend the Constitution on marriage. Gays want to amend the dictionary. National Missile Defense can bring down a treaty without ever hitting a missile.

As temperatures dipped in February and March, Baltimore's homicide count dropped, as well, prompting many on social media to wonder if there's a correlation. Arguments on both sides can be bolstered by just looking at the first three months of 2014. Temperatures over that period were on average the seventh-coldest on record at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Nearly a foot of precipitation was measured — about 2 inches more than normal. In February, 10 people were killed in Baltimore, seven in March.

Numbers-- Total jobless claims throughout the country fell by 25,000 last week to 303,000, the lowest level since mid-April. Tip of the Week - Organization development Leaders of successful organizations value the competitive edge a thriving corporate atmosphere creates and recognize the link between employee opinion and productivity. Casual dress codes, seated massages and concierge services are gifts to employees and have no deep-rooted correlation to organizational culture. Healthy relationships between supervisors and employees can be the single most influential ingredient to driving stakeholder commitment.

Tuesday night, Gov. Martin O'Malley sent out this tweet: "Here's the chart about violent crime in Baltimore that the Baltimore Sun is unwilling to publish: http://www. governor.maryland.gov/documents/crim e_arrests.pdf   … " In case you're wondering what the story is, here's the explanation. Last week, The Sun ran a story reporting that Governor O'Malley had become increasingly outspoken about his belief that the rise in violent crime in Baltimore this year is the result of the significant decline in the number of arrests in the city during the last few years.

Jeffrey Brauner of Baltimore spotted an odd-looking tornado on TV news recently. It was no funnel, he said, "just a big, dark blob of clouds sagging down going the same speed as the clouds in the sky. Is this type of tornado more or less dangerous than the funnel type?" Tornadoes take many forms (wedge, funnel, cone, tube, rope) and colors. Some start as funnels, broaden, then die as ropes. There is no correlation between shape and strength. They're all bad news.

In its annual school performance report, the state Education Department rates schools excellent, satisfactory or "NM," which means schools have "not met" state standards. Alas, Baltimore City's 1993 report card has one "ex" (in 11th-grade reading), one "sat" (in promotion rate) and 11 NM's.The city has many critics (the vast majority of whom don't live here) who take this as another indication that nothing is done right in Baltimore. But along with the report card, the state is now releasing what it calls "other factors," and some of them are worth noting.

Here's some happy news: You're already happy. At least compared to people in other states. In a study being published in the December issue of the Journal of Research in Personality, Maryland comes out as the sixth-happiest state in the nation, and the happiest one on the East Coast. We beat out all our neighbors by fairly wide margins: Virginia comes closest at 15th, but Pennsylvania is 32nd, Delaware is 36th and West Virginia is a positively melancholy 50th. The researchers, Peter J. Rentfrow of the University of Cambridge in England, Charlotta Mellander of the Jonkkoping International Business School in Sweden and Richard Florida (of "The Creative Class" fame)

PHILADELPHIA -- The woods were densely foliated, and the sun had reached its highest point of the year, so what Jim Wagner saw last week was absolutely incongruous.Snow was reported at two Canadian weather stations well south of where it should have been snowing. The morning before, a freezing temperature was recorded in the atmosphere not far above Washington.Mr. Wagner, a more-than-casual observer given that he is senior forecaster for the government's Climate Analysis Center, said he couldn't recall such a reading so late in June.

Almost anyone engaged in the battle of the bulging midsection knows that French fries are not their friends. But the real shocker in the study of long-term weight gain that came out of Harvard this week was that eating too many spuds of any kind — even plain old baked potatoes — could make you heavier. Every additional serving of potatoes that people added to a regular diet each day was connected to an average weight gain of about a one pound over four years. That is not a ton of weight gain, but as the study published Thursday in The New England Journal of Medicine points out, it adds up over time.

Breast cancer patients with low levels of vitamin D when they're diagnosed have a higher risk of their cancer spreading and are more likely to die from the disease, according to new research from scientists in Toronto. Women with vitamin D deficiency had almost twice the risk of the cancer spreading, and they were 73 percent more likely to die within 10 years. The findings, announced Thursday by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, add to a growing body of evidence that vitamin D may play a role in preventing and perhaps limiting breast and other cancers.

One key ingredient of school reform is leadership, and that generally comes from principals. Last week, Advocates for Children and Youth, a Baltimore-based group, documented the correlation between inexperienced principals and poorly performing schools in Maryland, a correlation that is also tied to poverty. Since many of these inadequately led, low-performing schools are in Baltimore, it's good that city schools CEO Andres Alonso already has been touting the idea of giving principals more authority in running their schools.

Maryland public high school seniors have one of the highest success rates on Advanced Placement tests in the nation, according to a College Board report released yesterday. The state, which has encouraged school systems to open the AP courses to more minority students and to provide training for more AP teachers, has nearly doubled the number of graduating seniors who are taking the exams from 2000 to 2006. Today, a third of seniors have taken at least one AP course and exam. At the same time, the percentage of graduating seniors who scored 3 or better - the score required by many colleges to receive credit - has risen from 14 percent to 22 percent.

The joke, which is probably older than the washing machine on grandma's front porch, goes like this: What do you get if you play a country music record backward?You get your wife back, you get your job back, you get your dog back. . . .But add another one to the list: You get your life back.An Auburn University sociologist who found a correlation between suicide rates and country music also has found something else: Them's fighting words.The professor and a colleague have written a real tears-in-your-beer abstract: "The results of a multiple-regression analysis of 49 metropolitan areas show that the greater the air time devoted to country music, the greater the white suicide rate."

Martek Biosciences can claim that its nutritional supplement helps develop infant minds and eyes, makes breast cancer treatments more tolerable and might prevent cardiovascular disease in adults. What the Columbia company hasn't quite nailed down is a correlation between its DHA - a vegetarian version of an omega-3 fatty acid typically found in fish - and slowed progression of Alzheimer's disease, despite animal studies showing a possible relationship. But yesterday, an arm of the National Institutes of Health announced that it will use Martek's DHA in a $10.5 million, 400- patient study into whether DHA can help slow Alzheimer's.
