Snyder and Ed Brandt)

Baltimore police are investigating how an image that appears to be a murder victim's wrapped body was posted to the Facebook page of the accused killer - while he was behind bars. The image posted to the Facebook page of 28-year-old Jermaine Jackson around 4 p.m. Monday shows a large object on a basement floor wrapped in a sheet and plastic. That's how police said the body of his boyfriend Andre Nicholas, also 28, had been found by officers after Jackson allegedly confessed to his mother that he had stabbed Nicholas.

WASHINGTON -- Four months after the congressional page scandal rocked Capitol Hill and helped dash Republican hopes for holding their majorities in Congress, the House voted unanimously yesterday to expand the board that oversees the teenage interns and require that it meet regularly. The House voted 416-0 to reorganize the board so that it has three congressional members from each party, one parent of a page and one former page. The board would be responsible for oversight of the roughly 70 pages - usually 16-year-olds who spend a year running errands for members of Congress and their staffs while attending school in the nation's capital.

Couch potatoes may be getting the best upper-body workouts these days, courtesy of some heavy reading of, quite literally, weighty subjects. Take, for instance, last month's Vogue, a letter carrier's nightmare weighing 5 pounds, 4 ounces. Vogue proudly announced that its fall fashion spectacular, weighing in at 832 pages, was its "biggest issue ever." October's 35th anniversary of Interview magazine, its largest issue at 384 pages, weighed less than half of Vogue, but its oversize format made it no less unwieldy than the fashion bible.

In the spring of 1981, when Marion Rodgers was a senior at Goucher College, she nearly fell on top of a box of old papers that would change her life. Rodgers was preparing an article for the student newspaper paper on a former author and Goucher professor named Sara Haardt - who later married the iconoclastic journalist H.L. Mencken. "I was putting away one of her scrapbooks in the vault of the library's rare book room when I literally stumbled over a box that was lying on the floor next to a shelf," said Rodgers, now a resident of Washington, D.C. "Taped on the top of the box was a message that basically said, 'Do not open until 1981.

The 113th Congress has just slinked out of town for a five-week summer recess, leaving behind its lowest public approval rating in 25 years, according to the latest Washington Post/ABC News Poll. A majority of voters surveyed -- 51 percent -- expressed disgust with their own legislators for their inability to do their job. Only 41 percent said they were pleased with their representative, contradicting the old cliché that voters dislike Congress as a whole but revere their own congressman or congresswoman.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King, who is touring NFL training camp sites in a neat little RV with his MMQB crew, had an interesting nugget from Ravens camp in his column this morning . Quarterback Joe Flacco and veteran receiver Steve Smith are working to get on the same page this camp, one $25 Starbucks gift card at a time. Every time the two disagree on a defensive read, they go to the tape and determine who was right. I'll let King elaborate: Case in point: Smith and Flacco viewed one adjusted Smith route differently, causing an errant throw; Smith said he was reading a Cover-2 alignment by the defense.

First, The Baltimore Sun reduced the amount of news it reported by eliminating one of its two daily papers. Then, The Sun further reduced its reporting by cutting down on the size of the paper. Now, the "newspaper" has reached the level of almost-no-news by regularly moving infotainment to the front page. Every time Michael Phelps popped his head out of the pool during the past week, he has appeared on the page where people used to look for the important things that were going on in the world ( "Phelps makes triumphant return to familiar waters," April 25)

Joseph McCarthy, who was leading the proceedings: "Have you no sense of decency, sir?" Welch asked. "At long last, have you left no sense of decency?" The same question could be asked today about your newspaper. In recent months there have been a number shootings at schools and other facilities in which multiple victims were killed or severely injured.
