The marvel of Rep. Paul Ryan's budget, which the House of Representatives approved this week, is that for a piece of legislation that's essentially dead on arrival in the Senate, it's going to live on as a political document from now until November. That was the point, of course, but it seems more likely that Republicans will regret its passage than Democrats. Conventional wisdom in Washington is that the GOP has the upper hand in the midterm elections, and polls seem to bear that out. As recently as a few weeks ago, statistical wunderkind Nate Silver viewed Republicans as being the slight favorites to wrest control of the U.S. Senate from the Democrats this year.

Anne Arundel police believe that a bloody belt discovered yesterday morning in a Millersville parking lot had been used a short time earlier to seriously wound a dog found nearby with its throat slashed. The animal, a young, yellow Labrador retriever-German shepherd mix, has been given a good chance of survival, said police spokesman Sgt. Shawn Urbas. The dog, which was not wearing identification, is being treated at a local veterinary hospital. Police began investigating around 9 a.m., when an employee of the Baldwin Methodist Education Center on Generals Highway called 911 to report that a brown leather strap was found near the front steps of the church.

Republican David R. Craig said Tuesday that he would push to cut the state income tax rate for Maryland's wealthiest residents by more than 20 percent during his first year as governor. Craig, one of four GOP candidates running in June's primary, said his plan would put Maryland on a course to eliminate its income tax entirely during his second term while cutting spending by 3 percent a year. He said such a move would stimulate economic growth and halt a loss of population to states with lower taxes.

A few months after Maria Andrea Espejo Quezada arrived in Baltimore from Mexico nine years ago, her son and two of his young relatives were beaten, strangled and almost decapitated. She was the first witness to take the stand as the state tries for a third time to convict Policarpio Espinoza Perez, accused of carrying out the killings with his nephew Adan Canela. Quezada provided insight into the life of her immigrant family, answering questions about romantic advances from extended members and alleged threats from a former husband in Mexico.

Policarpio Espinoza Perez and Adan Canela have been mentioned in the same breath since they were charged nine years ago in Baltimore with slashing the throats of three young relatives, ages 8, 9 and 10. They have sat side-by-side at two trials, but as prosecutors this week make a third try at convicting them, each man will get a chance to tell his own story. The change could allow the defendants to challenge the prosecution's theory that they were both involved in the Northwest Baltimore murders - another hurdle for a prosecution already without key pieces of evidence from the last trial seven years ago. E. Wesley Adams III, a former Baltimore homicide prosecutor who was not involved in the case, said it is generally more difficult to convict defendants separately.

As we prepare to mark World AIDS Day tomorrow, the U.S. government this week announced a blueprint for achieving an AIDS-free generation. The plan to confront AIDS globally outlines goals and objectives that take into account groundbreaking scientific advances in HIV care, treatment, and prevention - many of which would not have been possible without federally funded research supported by Maryland-based institutions and scientists. These advances in our knowledge of how to treat and prevent HIV infection could be game-changing in our fight against the pandemic, but time to act on this new U.S. blueprint will be short.

The Bowie State University student charged with fatally slashing her randomly assigned roommate in their shared suite last year was acquitted Thursday of every charge against her, as jurors apparently believed she was acting to protect herself in a sprawling melee. After about 21/2 hours of deliberation, jurors found Alexis Simpson, 20, not guilty of first-degree murder and a host of lesser charges in the September 2011 slaying of 18-year-old Dominique Frazier. They rejected even the idea that Simpson acted in a grossly negligent way in the death.
