Just how cost-effective is the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange ( "Md. health exchange working better, but glitches remain," Oct. 29)? How many employees work there, and what are the average annual salaries? What is the annual cost of operations? How much is coming from Maryland and how much is coming from the federal government? And, once we know how many millions is costing each year, is it cost effective, i.e., how much does it cost for each previously uninsured Marylander who gets coverage through the exchange?

Maryland football players and coaches spent Sunday breaking down and critiquing their 52-24 loss Saturday to Ohio State at Byrd Stadium. Now the Terps hope to take advantage of their bye week before preparing for their Oct. 18 home game against Iowa. In particular, Maryland (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten Conference) will look to get as healthy as possible. Several players, including starting outside linebacker Matt Robinson (Atholton) and reserve defensive backs Zach Dancel and Daniel Ezeagwu, missed Saturday's game against the Buckeyes, now ranked No. 15. Starters such as inside linebackers Cole Farrand and L.A. Goree also have been playing through injuries.

The new year was less than 12 hours old before the first homicide was recorded in Baltimore: A woman was shot to death, and the man she lived with has been charged with murder. Meanwhile, the new year began with a bang -- the bang of gunfire -- in Washington, New York and Philadelphia.Washington Police Chief Isaac Fulwood, commenting on the record number of homicides of more than 700 in the nation's capital, noted ominously that the carnage is no longer principally related to the drug trade.

I was right. James Novak is dead, and it honestly couldn't have ended any other way. He knew too much, and Cyrus had a heartbreak coming to him after all the bad he's done. Let's back up. After shooting Vanessa Chandler, Shelby Moss from the NSA and James, Jake turns his gun on David. But David has a choice. He can cooperate with B613 and help them cover up the murders, or he can die, too. David chooses life, which means helping Jake make James' murder look like a “carjacking gone wrong.” At the White House, Olivia is trying to do anything she can to keep Cyrus calm, and to make sure his distraught staff doesn't further upset him. We are then, cruelly, treated to the first of several flashbacks to the beginning of James and Cy's relationship, which really twists the knife.

Q. My 2-year-old son is happy and healthy. My only concern is that when he becomes very frustrated or angry and starts to have a temper tantrum, he bangs his head on the floor very hard. We have consulted our pediatrician, who advised us to ignore this behavior and only intercede when he begins to bang his head on a hard surface. We were told not to be concerned unless he continues this behavior at age 4. Can you please share some advice on this? A. Children this age often bang their heads when they are frustrated.

OPENING my eyes, I sink down into the warm sheets, pull the comforter around me and ignore the clock. The sun is creeping RTC in my shuttered windows and, through the louvers, I can just detect a wren climbing into one of the faded white hollow beams of the pergola. She has built a nest there. A few twigs hang over the edge, giving away her cover.I am not a bird person, but I find myself watching the comings and goings of birds with more than casual interest as I grow older. But I like birds at a distance, sitting high in the maple tree or perched at the very tip of the white pine, where a neighboring mockingbird likes to roost and serenade us.I don't like birds paying insistent calls at my windows -- tap, tap, tapping like Poe's raven, driving me to distraction and causing me to consider building a scarecrow in my dining room.

The Hampden Village Merchants Association made an expensive promotional float for the Mayor's Christmas Parade on Dec. 8, but when a snow storm canceled the parade, the float became moot and merchants were left out in the cold. On Friday, still bound and determined to get bang for their buck, association members staged a one-float parade up and down West 36th Street (The Avenue), Hampden's man commercial corridor. Two bicyclists, including newly named Merchant of the Year Will Bauer, aka Lou Catelli, pedaled laboriously to get the attached float rolling.

In the seventh inning of Saturday's loss at Tropicana Field, the Tampa Bay Rays hit two triples into the left-center gap. Both times, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones tracked the balls down and threw into the infield. Then, both times, Jones grimaced in pain as his knees momentarily buckled. He stayed in the game and later drove in the Orioles' lone run. But he definitely wasn't right in the seventh. In classic Jones' fashion, he refused to talk about specifics of the discomfort, though he did admit he's aching.

No wonder that Baltimore schools' CEO Andrés Alonso is flashing a big smile in The Sun ( "Alonso cashes in on leave," July 29). Who wouldn't smile with the payout that he is receiving for the not-so-great job that he did for Baltimore's schools? He was good at one thing, however, and that was spending money with questionable results. F. Cordell

This is the scene twelve hours after gunmen opened fire on a car, killing three and wounding a fourth, and helping to make November the deadliest month of the year: two bullet casings embedded in the mud, shattered glass in an empty parking space on Oakford Avenue, four pairs of shoes, their laces tied, dangling from an overhead power line. Thirty-one slayings in 30 days. Baltimore's worst November in nine years. If these numbers mean anything, the city's 216 killings this year are still well below the 265 we had at this time in 2007.

WASHINGTON -- When the government of Vietnam opened its first diplomatic office here last week, the chief of liaison was met with angry shouts from protesters. In the days that followed, however, the downtown suite of offices has filled up with flowers from U.S. companies eager to do business with the former foe.As Vietnam and the United States move gingerly toward full diplomatic ties, the strains of the past and the hopes for the future overlap awkwardly.Le Van Bang, the chief of the new, six-person liaison office, describes his role as helping to tell America of how Vietnam has moved on since the Communists emerged victorious and unified the country nearly 20 years ago. As he shows a visitor around the largely empty downtown suite of offices, decorated with tapestries of pagodas and the orange-and-yellow Vietnamese flag, he stopped to read cards from some of the floral tributes.
