Montgomery County Police are continuing to investigate the deaths of two children at a Germantown residence Friday — and said officers had been at the residence the night before responding to a call about a child left alone in a car. Friday at about 9:30 a.m., officers were called to the 19000 block of Cherry Bend Drive after a resident called 911 when they noticed a vehicle with the door open and a knife laying outside of the vehicle. Police said officers went to a townhouse and found two women and four children — two of the children dead.

Scientists with the University of Maryland School of Medicine are helping to test a vaccine to fight a lethal strain of bird flu that has killed 44 people in China. The H7N9 strain has not yet been found in the United States, but the medical school's Center for Vaccine Development is among nine sites around the country where researchers are participating in two clinical trials to get the vaccine ready as a precaution in case of a global pandemic. "If you wait until a pandemic has hit and start testing the vaccine, you are behind the curve," said Dr. James D. Campbell, an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and a lead investigator of the study.

GUNS DON'T KILL people. People kill people." Tell that to the parents of the two high school students who died Monday in Santee, Calif. Certainly, there's plenty of blame to go around: The alleged assailant had made threats that his peers seemed to take seriously -- but not seriously enough to alert their parents or authorities. At least one adult, interviewed on national television, indicated that he was aware of the 15-year-old freshman's boast that he planned to shoot up his school.

ONCE AGAIN I know you'll think that I made this up -- but I didn't. It was in the newspapers.The U.S. Customs Service has banned the importation of toy M-16 rifles because they look so much like the real thing. Apparently, as far as the government is concerned, some authentic guns are not as much a threat to the citizenry as toy ones.The reason behind the ban is that the fake M-16 looks so real that police can't tell the difference. Officers have been shooting people carrying the toys. Also, fake guns are being used more and more in "armed" robberies by criminals who can't afford a real gun.Clyde Heston, president of the National Toy Gun Association and ZTC Charlton Heston's third cousin, was indignant over the Customs order.

Make the Mechanic a relic of memory I've read with interest of the discussions about saving the Morris A. Mechanic Theater, a grotesque example of public-building-as-urban-fortress ("Saving the Mechanic," Sept. 28). Ugly when it was built, it served as a cold and unfriendly public space for many years. It was never quite clear why anyone imagined that the urban canyon it is part of could serve as the centerpiece of an urban renaissance. Of course, there are practical reasons to save the Mechanic.

ANOTHER SEARING image. More innocents being led from a bloody crime scene. This time it was children at a Jewish Community Center in Los Angeles. Last time, it was office workers in Alabama. The time before that, stock traders in Atlanta.This time -- just like last time and the time before that -- an unstable person had access to a powerful gun.And you can regrettably predict what comes next: The gun lobby repeats that "guns don't kill people, people kill people."Nonsense. You can draw a straight line in logic from the proliferation of guns in this country to the rising tide of senseless violence.

I DEFEND those accused of criminal acts. Although many of my clients have had, and have used, handguns, I had never fired one. So when a friend of mine in law enforcement suggested I meet her at an indoor shooting range, I accepted.Even with ear protection, in a confined space the crack and blast from a handgun are intense and unsettling. In this it is not unlike a prison where radio and television compete for domination of the same room; where the sudden crash of metal doors and the explosive shout of angry voices compete for domination of the inmate's souls.

Lots of things get shot in Baltimore. The breeze. Action movies. Bad guys. But waterfowl, not so much. So what was a famous shotgun manufacturer doing on the wide-open asphalt of West Baltimore this past weekend? Shooting something else: a commercial. This portion of U.S. 40 is a submerged highway between the Social Security building and a commuter train lot that allows you to traverse the inner city without actually seeing it, and it's apparently the perfect place for Benelli USA to film an ad for ESPN and the Outdoor Channel.

Saying that guns, rather than shooters, kill people is like saying cars, not drunk drivers, are at fault for vehicle accidents. If assault weapons are more dangerous than regular guns, why aren't heavy trucks and fast sports cars more dangerous than ordinary vehicles? Wake up America! The problem is people, not guns or cars.

If Neil Edwin Prescott, who calls himself a "joker," is nothing more than a fun-loving, sarcastic gentle giant, why was he stockpiling several thousand rounds of ammunition and a cache of two dozen weapons, including semiautomatic rifles and pistols ("Police: Crofton man planned mass shooting, called himself 'joker,'" July 28)? His friends may be laughing, although I'm glad the police took Mr. Prescott seriously and have him in custody. With mass shootings happening all too frequently, we can't afford to sit around and wait until someone makes good on a threat to blow up everyone up at his former workplace.

In a halting voice, a 24-year-old Elkridge man recalled on Wednesday the sight of an approaching car as he watched a drag race almost two years ago, and how he had not realized until too late that the Chevrolet Impala was headed straight for him and his two friends. "Get out of the way!" Paul A. Duffy remembered screaming to his friends, an admonition that failed to save Mary-Kathryn Abernathy, 21, and Jonathan R. Henderson, 20, from the impact of the speeding Impala. Both died in the June 21, 2009, accident on Interstate 70 in Woodlawn, and Duffy suffered broken ribs and other injuries.

On the morning of Saturday, January 8, in the confluence that brought 21 strangers together at a Tucson strip mall, the rights of one of them trumped the rights of the other 20 hands down. Because Jared Lee Loughner is a resident of Arizona, he had the right to buy and conceal the 9mm Glock pistol with which he took away Christina Taylor Green's right to have a 10th birthday, Judge John M. Roll's right to shake a friend's hand, and social worker and community volunteer Gabe Zimmerman's right to marry his fiancée.

December 1960 was a memorable month for disasters. On Dec. 16, United Airlines Flight 826 from Chicago was headed for Idlewild Airport, now John F. Kennedy International, when it collided over New York City with Trans World Airways Flight 266, which had originated in Dayton, Ohio, and was preparing to land at LaGuardia. The spectacular daytime collision, which occurred while it was raining, sleeting and slightly foggy, sent debris and death into Brooklyn's Park Slope neighborhood.

"Disco Bloodbath," by James St. James. Simon & Schuster. 286 pages. $23.James St. James' vastly entertaining, scarily well-written and horrifically funny book, "Disco Bloodbath," begins with a description of the chemical makeup and preparation of ketamine hydrochloride, the drug commonly known as Special K. If we are to understand the events that are about to unfold before us in this "Fabulous But True Tale of Murder in Clubland" (subtitle), St. James tells us, a working knowledge of K and its psychotropic effects is key. "Otherwise you'll be lost in the sauce, as they say."

Katherine S. Brady, 31, and her 8-year-old son, Wilson Brady, were killed.
