Responding to a barrage of inquiries about sanitary conditions at Mimi's Cafe in Columbia, the Howard County Health Department on Wednesday inspected the restaurant and gave it passing marks. Lisa M. de Hernandez, a spokeswoman for the health department, said that the food-safety division routinely responds to complaints or tips from the public. In this instance, the department received about 15 emails regarding the restaurant in less than 24 hours, which is highly unusual, de Hernandez said.

The victim, who is only identified as a 25-year-old teacher in the police report, was walking in the park about 8:30 p.m. when four juveniles started punching him. One of the attackers yelled "Worldstar," a reference to the popular web site "Worldstarhiphop.com" where fight videos uploaded daily. According to the police report, the man fought back and tore the shirt off of one of the juveniles, and the group then ran south on foot toward Eastern Avenue.

Governor Martin O'Malley today participated in an Ask Me Anything thread on reddit . The potential 2016 presidential candidate faced some tough questions. Here's a sampling of what O'Malley responded to:   bmoreguy: Baltimore city is a place where you really got your start as politician. First as a city councilman, then as mayor and now as governor. What do you say to that fact that the city has the highest property taxes, the worst schools, deteriorating infrastructure and no presence of a corporate headquarters after 20+ years of your leadership?

The lanky 18-year-old in a blue mortarboard cap, his shoulders festooned with tassels and other regalia, stepped to the lectern, gave Howard High School's Class of 2001 a nervous snicker and spoke words heard in countless other graduation speeches that year. "There is no reason why this class shouldn't be a testament to the past thousand years of learning, and the next thousand years," Alexis Ohanian told the crowd at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia. "Live up to the name, 'Class of the Millennium.' The only future we have is that which we make for ourselves.

One of the driving principles in the live and late-breaking world of TV news is to just keep moving on. Don't dwell too long on yesterday's mistakes, or you'll miss today's big story. But the mistakes made by social media and cable TV after the Boston Marathon bombings have continued reverberating with the discovery last week of the body of a young man falsely accused of being a suspect. We saw similar patterns after the Newtown shooting, and we need to look at this trend before the media get any further out of control.
