Did you hear that? It was the collective cry of dismay from working parents across Baltimore County who learned this morning that schools would be closing two hours early today -- and that after-care would be canceled -- because of excessive heat. This is one of the reasons I used to always wonder: How do families manage when both parents work full time? And how in the world do single parents do it? Well, thanks to my laptop and understanding bosses and colleagues (flattery gets me everywhere)

The packed West Baltimore funeral was unsettled before the shots rang out. At 12:15 p.m. yesterday, the Rev. Napoleon Rush was preaching on the need to stop the violence that had brought 300 mourners to Unity United Methodist Church to view the body of Anthony Lamont Izzard Sr., 26, killed April 11 in a triple shooting. "I noticed a lot of things that was out of order," Rush said of the overflow crowd, many of them young and, according to him, "in the drug life." Instead of sitting quietly in the pews, many mourners were walking in and out of the church, according to Rush, and not abiding by his calls for order.
