It's springtime, and I remember when the view from my kitchen window was a lovely little backyard tableau of green lawn and swing set, happy tomato garden and sunny marigolds in patio pots. It was a scene that gave me a sense of order and peace. Inside, there might be laundry-basket-shaped wads of permanently creased wash dumped on my bed, an office cluttered with charge cords for every electronic device in our home and a freezer stocked with unidentifiable lumps -- but at least our backyard was lovely, pleasant and inviting.

Dumb animals can be pretty smart. Looking out our kitchen window the other day, my wife glanced into our neighbors' yard, where they've got one of those bird feeders fixed with a barrier to keep squirrels from getting at the goodies. It was hanging by a thread from one of their trees. Hanging onto the feeder from a cylindrical piece at the bottom was a squirrel. The feeder spun around as it dangled from the branch, and the squirrel twirled along with it. "Whee!" I said, laughing.

The whiskey bottle filled with gasoline, set on fire and thrown against the side of Mavis Mallett's house shattered a double-paned kitchen window, bounced off a screen and landed in a potted plant on a stone walkway outside. There, the Molotov cocktail burned itself out in a tiger lily. It left behind a small crater in the dirt and black scorch marks on the white aluminum siding of the single-family home on Yosemite Avenue in Northwest Baltimore's Ashburton neighborhood. Wednesday's pre-dawn attack was the latest in a series of nine similar and apparently random firebombings from one end of the city to the other over the past three weeks that have confounded police, who said they have no leads.

CHESTER, Md. (AP) — A deer spent 90 minutes inside an Eastern Shore home before it was herded out the front door. Maryland Natural Resources Police Officer Robert Ford asked everyone to stay away from the open front door, and after a few minutes the deer found its way out of the Chester home Saturday afternoon. The male deer was one of three seen in the area earlier in the day by Audrey Thomas, who later noticed her neighbor's kitchen window was broken. Inside, the deer overturned kitchen chairs and a cabinet before becoming entangled in drapes near glass doors in an adjoining office.

A clue something was strange came during a Tuesday snowfall last month. A man was wandering the streets of Belair-Edison carrying a shovel, looking for walkways to clear. At first, he seemed innocuous, a down-on-his-luck man trying to fill his pockets with a little bit of money, despite the fact that neighborhood houses were being burglarized at the rate of more than one a week. But now, as the neighbors think back, the man was probably trying to learn which houses were empty without arousing suspicion.
