    Wandering Eye: More reason to doubt HUD's homeless figures, the GOP's possible violation of election laws, and more
    A brand-new report by the National Center on Family Homelessness, "America's Youngest Outcasts: A Report Card on Child Homelessness," puts the number of homeless youth in America at almost 2.5 million, or one in every 30 children—the highest ever. Maryland ranks 19th among all 50 states for the extent of the problem, 12th for child well-being (scoring food security, health, and education), 21st for risk of child homelessness (measuring poverty, household structure, housing, and available support), and 7th for government efforts to contend with the problem. The number of young homeless people in Maryland rose 11 percent over two years, to 30,645 in 2012-2013, making it about 2.2 percent of the state's under-18 population. The analysis would seem to cast further doubt on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s announcement late last month that the number of homeless people in Maryland declined 27.6 percent since 2010.

    The Count: Sheila Dixon

    Incumbent mayors run for re-election in Baltimore the same way they do everywhere else: by using friends' money and resources to try to make magic happen. And it usually works. William Donald Schaefer in the 1970s and '80s had an unstoppable electoral...
