Baltimore police have charged a man in a triple shooting that killed two brothers in Southwest Baltimore, a crime that investigators believe led to the retaliatory killing of the mother and brother of one of the suspects. But any celebration over closing a case that police feared would led to further reprisals was muted, as gun violence in the city continued to take its toll with the unrelated shooting Sunday night of a 9-year-old boy in Druid Heights. Police said the unidentified boy was struck in the hip and critically wounded about 11 p.m. in the 400 block of Bloom St. Two men in their 20s, who police said were "well-known to law enforcement," were also struck and appeared to be the intended victims.

I returned to my old community of West Baltimore, under the shadow of Bon Secours Hospital near the intersection of West Fayette and North Payson streets, to visit a native I had not seen for three decades. David Brown, who lived across the alley from me in the old neighborhood, had years ago opened a small store directly across from the sprawling hospital. The New Fayette Street Market & Deli is like a small fortress, with a Plexiglas bastion from which he can sell sundries and essentials in blackest night or brightest day. In one corner of his store is a small desk with two computers, which provide neighborhood kids with a window to a world far removed from the blasted buildings and broken streets of the community.

PARIS - The tiger cub stops dead in his tracks, his whole body tensing with alertness. He's heard an unfamiliar rustling in his jungle habitat, and we see his reaction tightly framed: His striking blue eyes convey surprise and curiosity but also fear. Swiftly he turns and scampers back to a haven, a place he knows his mother will be. It's a dramatic, rich little scene - and it has been caught in its entirety by film cameras. This is no small feat, as French director Jean-Jacques Annaud can confirm.

Reggie and Marquis Ellis nod together when reminded of what their father told them about trophies. "Trophies collect dust," they recalled Reggie Ellis Sr. saying when the two boys were toddlers, long before they led the Franklin football team to a 10-2 record as seniors last fall. "Memories last forever. " The boys always received awards and accolades at the end of a sports season - from football to basketball to soccer to T-ball - while growing up, and another form of recognition came for the two brothers in February when each received an invitation to play for the Maryland team against Pennsylvania in Saturday's Big 33 Football Classic at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pa. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said Reggie Ellis, the 5-foot-11 versatile athlete who had 1,818 all-purpose yards and 22 touchdowns for the Indians last fall.

Mothers are very important people. They give us hugs and kisses; they put Band-Aids on our wounds; they hide special notes in our lunch boxes. They're so special and important that they even get their own day. Today, my two brothers - Matthew and Jacob - and I will celebrate our mothers for Mother's Day. We'll plot how to surprise our moms and talk about what we should make for a special breakfast, then go do something fun with them. But this Mother's Day will be even more special than all of the others because we'll plan all our surprises knowing that soon after, on May 18 (one week before their 30th anniversary)

When Albina Digaeva, a Chechen who was granted political asylum in the United States, first learned that the Boston bombing suspects were from Chechnya, she called the California family who initially put her up when she arrived 15 years ago and apologized. A member of the host family that originally hailed from Boston "tried to calm me down and said I can't claim responsibility for the actions of two individuals," said Digaeva, who now lives in Los Angeles and doesn't know the two brothers suspected in the bombing.

I've been reading Facebook tributes to two young men — Audie "Party Audie" Mickens and James "Jimmy" Johnson, brothers slain within the last couple of months in West Baltimore — and I've found dozens of them laced with the "f word" and the "n word" and the "s word," many written in the crude shorthand of the poor and violent city within the city. To an outsider, these postings seem ugly and obtuse, the common-speak of young adults who have been immersed in profane language throughout their lives and use it every day, even to speak fondly of the dead.
