Breaking News this morning, January 25th, 2014: Shooting at the Mall in Columbia, MD That is not a headline I could have ever imagined. Columbia, MD is considered a safe place to live. In 2012 it was voted the eighth best small city to live in the USA by CNNMoney. I live and work in Howard County, MD and just passed by the Mall in Columbia yesterday on my way to showing houses.
