As you've probably noticed, there is a new housing development coming to Towson, behind Wilson Lighting, off York Road. What do you think, will this help liven up downtown Towson? (Which is in desperate need of livening up.)

From a friend of mine in Rodgers Forge:
At 730a yesterday my husband called me at work to tell me that a bottle of children’s liquid medication was sitting on the bathroom sink, lid off, contents gone…did I know anything about this? I had given my feverish, 2-year-old daughter the recommended dose for her age/weight at 5am, put the childproof lid back on and left it in the box and on the sink as a reminder for my husband should she need follow up dosing.
We determined that sometime between 645a (when I left for work) and 730a (when my husband entered the bathroom and found the empty bottle), our 4-year-old son had consumed 2 to 3 ounces of the medication. Either I did not have the cap on securely, or as my new BFF Eric at Poison Control suggested, since children have a much higher frustration threshold than adults, my son worked it until it came off.

We spoke to the woman posting the signs. She found him in the middle of the road in Rodgers Forge.
