City sees 40 homicides, more than 100 shootings this month

To put this somewhat in perspective, the slightly more populous city of Seattle had just 26 homicides in all of 2014, which is an average of 2.2 homicides per month.

Money Minute: 3 reasons money isn't making you happy

I explain three reasons you may be earning more but don't feel any happier.

Here are five more reasons.

4. You live in Baltimore.
5. It's 2:00am.
6. You've just withdrawn $300 from the ATM.
7. Your car is 20 yards away over open ground.
8. There's a burning police car just up the street.

It could be worse I suppose. I watched The Sum of All Fears last night. Spoiler alert. You know how thriller movies often have a nuclear bomb that is disarmed just in the nick of time? Well, in this fictional movie, Baltimore was not so lucky.

In my opinion, The Sum of All Fears was at least one fear shy of a full load. Sigh.
