Yes, even millionaires want friends. The percentage of American millionaires on Facebook jumped to 46 percent this year, up from 26 percent a year ago, according to Spectrem eZine. These are people with $1 million to $5 million in net worth, not including their house. Even 47 percent of  the ultra wealthy, those with $5 million to $25 million in net worth, are on Facebook. Spectrem, which tracks the affluent, says that nearly half of the wealthiest investors like treading blogs by trusted financial advisers.

Montgomery County Judge Richard E. Jordan was so appalled by the actions of former Baltimore Police Officer Alec Taylor that he went outside sentencing guidelines to order the man committed to jail for a year - four times the maximum recommendation of three months. Mr. Taylor's crime? Beating a dog to death. The facts of the case are pretty horrific. The officer pummeled "Rocko," a tiny Jack Russell terrier, with a mop, choked him and left him lying on the floor all because the pup had soiled a rug. Mr. Taylor then sent a girlfriend a series of unemotional text messages about the beating, including this one: "Yeah I think he's pretty much dead.

I watch with interest the parade of character references that vouch for the integrity of state Sen. Ulysses S. Currie ("Lt. governor calls Currie 'a man of strong integrity,'" Oct. 25). While something can be said for being a "stand-up guy" when your friend is in trouble, to say that he is "a man of strong integrity," as Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, did dishonors Mr. Brown and his office. The court will adjudicate the charges of bribery, but the senator was employed by Shoppers Food Warehouse and did not claim it on his required disclosure forms and did not recuse himself from legislation affecting Shoppers.

To his friends and supporters, Eric T. Costello is just what the City Council needs: a smart, hard-working community president with financial experience that could save taxpayers money. To his critics, however, Costello is just what Baltimore doesn't need: an ambitious, sometimes volatile leader more interested in pleasing the powerful than his neighborhood's residents. Costello, 33, a New York native, has been a magnet for controversy during his relatively short tenure in Baltimore.

There's one question that makes me cringe and instantly start doing the la-la-la, I-can't-hear-you thing with my ears: "Can I tell you how I really feel?" No, dear God, no! Anything but that! It's not that I don't care what other people think. In fact, being a reporter, I've spent a good deal of my life asking people what they think about something. (Well, usually I'm asking what they know, but people generally want to tell you what they think — big difference.)

The middle school years are the most mystifying time. They enter middle school in the sixth grade as little kids and exit in the eighth grade well on their way to becoming young adults. In the years in between, they try to figure out their own identities, including who their friends will be. What do you do when you don't like the friends your child is hanging around with? I've been wrestling with this question. On the one hand, I think it is impossible to dictate to my son who his friends should and shouldn't be. He'll probably want to do the opposite of what I say anyway.

It was Monday morning. I was tired and my allergies were uncivil. My body was sore from yoga the day before, and just the thought of work in a few hours intensified my aches. From my window, I could see a dazzling red rose, flowing effortlessly in the morning breeze. I rolled my eyes at its beauty before painfully rising to begin my day. "Ow," I complained, as my body was a living example of "no pain, no gain. " I stretched long and hard, in an attempt to awaken my dead limbs.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake plans to unveil dozens of recommendations Wednesday intended to lure immigrant families to Baltimore and retain them. The proposals, from increasing the availability of translators at city agencies to making it easier for the undocumented to buy homes, offer insight into the mayor's pledge to attract 10,000 new families over the next decade - an effort that is focused in part on the city's burgeoning immigrant neighborhoods. "I want to make sure that Baltimore isn't behind the curve on this trend," said Rawlings-Blake, who will formally announce the recommendations today.

What girl doesn't love a sleepover with her friends? It's all about giggling and being silly together. It's a time for sharing secrets, painting each other's nails, and munching on cheese curls and chips while watching the latest Disney princess DVD or teen romance. So it also is for the young women of the ARC of Howard County, the nonprofit that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Twice a month, they gather at the ARC's respite care house in Columbia for their own version of a sleepover, Ladies' Night Out. And while the girls are mostly 20-somethings, with a variety of intellectual and physical disabilities, they are, in many ways, typical girls who love to hang out with their friends, away from their parents.
