The feds are going to look into Maryland's health exchange rollout fiasco and all the Democratic powers are saying they welcome the investigation ( "Federal inspector to audit Maryland health exchange," March 9). Really ? Any one who actually believes that must also believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. Actually , the only Democrats who "really" welcome this are Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's Democratic challengers in this year's gubernatorial race because it appears that Gov. Martin O'Malley's point man for the rollout has either been asleep for the past year or simply doesn't have a clue how to run anything.

Each week, my inbox fills up quickly with surveys that explore some aspect of the workplace, some serious, some light-hearted. Here's a sampling of recent surveys that can be used for watercooler fodder or a good laugh: A survey commissioned by Diet Pepsi Max, a highly caffeinated new soda, found that 50 percent of 1,102 respondents have caught someone asleep on the job, while 28 percent have fallen asleep at work themselves. Apparently, auto mechanics have the highest rate of on-the-job snoozing at 65 percent, followed by government workers at 51 percent.

I was a teacher-mentor in the Baltimore City schools years ago when the city went $57 million in debt and we were all fired ("Schools audit draws concern," Oct. 9). I remember thinking at the time that the school board must have been sleeping not to have noticed the discrepancies in funding. Well, what do you know: The new school board has the same problem. Why do they accept what they are told? Isn't it their job to see through the spin to oversee what is going on in the system and make sure the job is being done?

Demetrius Alvin Boyd picked the wrong place to fall asleep -- in his Toyota, stopped in a travel lane of a highway, passed out at the wheel with his foot on the brake.  Awakened by a U.S. Park Police officer patrolling the Baltimore-Washington Parkway near Greenbelt, Boyd ran into a problem other than needing shut-eye. He had been drinking alcohol, had 17 small bags filled with marijuana and a loaded .45 caliber handgun, reported stolen, tucked in his waistband. On Wednesday, a federal judge in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt sentenced the 35-year-old Boyd, of Laurel, to four years in prison for the drugs, another six months for driving under the influence, followed by two years of supervised probation once he's released.
