Many thanks to Jay Hancock for his interesting article about the Justice Department accusing Kernan Hospital of fraud in presenting a diagnosis of kwashiorkor in the billing for a number of patients ("Feds charge fraud in Kernan diagnoses," Nov. 8). I find it hard to believe that any medical personnel would be so stupid as to bill for patients with a wildly unlikely diagnosis of kwashiorkor. It seems more likely that a billing clerk entered an erroneous ICD (international classification of disease)

The recent report by Election Integrity Maryland that there may be as many as 164 individuals who voted in both Maryland and Virginia in the 2012 election hasn't exactly caused the Maryland Board of Elections to press the panic button. There's a reason for that: The numbers don't prove fraud and more likely point to clerical error. That's not to suggest the Fairfax County Electoral Board should not seek criminal investigation, as officials announced last week, into 17 possible cases of duplicate voting in that Northern Virginia county - such due diligence is entirely appropriate - but the chances that such incidents will result in fraud convictions are slim.

This year's Wine in the Woods festival in Columbia was a great success - except that someone made off with about $30,000 of the proceeds. County police, auditors and financial experts are investigating, but Howard County Recreation and Parks Director Gary J. Arthur said the shortfall from the May 15-16 event remains a mystery. "We have no idea. There are 16 people who touched the money," he said, "With the amount of money that goes through those gates, we thought we had everything pretty secure."

"Clerical Errors," by Alan Isler. Scribner. 282 pages. $24. What's a priest to do, when his longtime mistress pilfers and sells a rare book from a church collection and his ecclesiastical enemy sets out to expose the theft? The Rev. Edmond Music finds himself in that very predicament in Alan Isler's quirky new novel, "Clerical Errors." Music is ensconced at Beale Hall, a British estate that was willed to the Catholic Church by a descendant of the Beale family. He oversees Beale Hall and its valuable collection of books thanks to the coed he met and bedded as a seminarian.

Gary's plan to create an independent agency to raise money for public golf courses, ice rinks and swimming pools died a quiet death.The measure, which would have established Anne Arundel's first Recreational Revenue Authority, will not appear on the County Council's Feb. 18 agenda because of bureaucratic snafu: A public meeting on the bill was not advertised according to law. As a result, legislation that Gary cast as a significant initiative will automatically expire.

Uh-oh! It's report card time! All those bright, eager faces turn solemn this week in anticipation of those ratings sheets.Poor little ones! Not that there's so much to worry about. After all, what does a mark of "2" in the category "participates in social studies activities" really mean? I think the elementary grade report cards are deliberately obscure to confound parents.As a result, we'll go to the parent-teacher conferences to find out how the kids really are doing. Maybe that's the reason for the confusing report cards: It's a way for the teachers to get the parents to come in.I once knew a pharmacist who did something like this.
