In a building with communal bathrooms (where we could easily lay hands on a few rolls)

He stood, dropped his pants and as one pocket crumpled, the other didn't. There it was: the creased outline of what appeared to be a pistol in the right hip pocket. I steeled and turned my attention to the specimen collection kit on the work shelf before me. The door was closed. We were alone in the exam room. This would be just fine, I told myself. To which another part of my brain responded - well, if it isn't, are you prepared? Ask me about my fears back when I first started volunteering to do sexually transmitted disease testing in a downtown Washington D.C. clinic for gay men, and my answer would involve an embarrassing lesson taught by a young patient in pumps and a halter top. Back then, not really knowing my patients - their backgrounds, social situations, lingo and interaction style - was pretty much my only fear.

The Baltimore City Council is unanimously calling for area companies to pay their security guards more. The resolution, which supports the efforts of private security guards to unionize, says labor unions "allow for improved terms and working conditons.

A couple of disturbing images are floating around in my head after last night's episode, but before we get into all of that, let's pick up at last week's cliffhanger. Olivia's mom is alive, which isn't the biggest surprise in the history of this show. What is interesting is that Rowan held her prisoner for 20 years in a hidden cell in what looks like a very crappy hospital, for reasons that aren't 100 percent clear, yet. Charlie drops Quinn off at work, which is definitely not the most covert way for them to meet.

In the grand scheme of obstructions at public meetings, Howard County parent Robert Small's insistence on challenging state and local education officials about the new curriculum being implemented based on Common Core standards barely registers. He engaged in no name-calling, made no threats and was asking a question directly related to the topic at hand. Had Baltimore County Superintendent Dallas Dance overlooked Mr. Small's breach of protocol - questions were supposed to be submitted in writing rather than called out by members of the audience - he and the others on the panel might have been able to dispel some myths about what the Common Core entails.
