A mother who says she watched helplessly as a plainclothes security guard at a Rite Aid in Hampden scooped up her 10-year-old son and held him upside down is suing the guard and the corporation for $6 million. In the lawsuit, filed this week in Baltimore City Circuit Court, Tracy Martin claims that the guard, Walter Jackson, then dragged her son back into the store and searched his pockets as the boy screamed and cried. Jody Cook, a spokeswoman for Pennsylvania-based Rite Aid Corp., said she hadn't seen the lawsuit and declined to comment.

A security guard angry at his employer for denying him bereavement leave when his infant son died and envious of the wealthy residents moving into an upscale Charles County housing development pleaded guilty yesterday to conspiring to set fires that resulted in $10 million in damages. Aaron Lee Speed, 21, of Waldorf pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt to one count of conspiracy to commit arson in a plea agreement that could send him to jail for five to 20 years. Dressed in all black and with a nearly shaved head, Speed appeared before Judge Roger W. Titus, hands clasped behind his back after his handcuffs were taken off, repeating "yes, sir" and "no, sir" in a monotone as Titus explained the terms of the agreement.

ATLANTA -- Keven Brown walked out of the Cobalt Lounge on Super Bowl night apparently minding his own business. Within minutes, he was pulling an attacker off a dying victim and scattering people from a fracas on a Buckhead street. Now he is a key figure in the slaying case against Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and may even be the best witness for the NFL star's defense. Brown, a burly security guard from Decatur, Ga., has been a reluctant witness, refusing all requests for interviews by the news media.

My sophomore year Harvard announced a cost-cutting measure that made the news. Going forward the school would continue to provide toilet paper to freshmen dorms, but upper classmen would have to provide for themselves.

One Monday night my roommate and I discovered that we were low on supplies, so after dinner we walked up the hill to Harvard Yard to visit the freshmen dorms. In a building with communal bathrooms (where we could easily lay hands on a few rolls)
