A week after the Baltimore liquor board imposed a mandatory eight-hour workday for liquor inspectors, five members of the inspection staff have filed for leave from their jobs because of stress or illness. Chief liquor inspector Samuel T. Daniels Jr. confirmed yesterday that several inspectors had requested leave, but he would not identify them. He said the requests started coming in several days after he imposed the new eight-hour workday policy, which went into effect Sept. 12. The new policy was introduced in an effort to ensure that inspectors were putting in 40 hours a week.

LOS ANGELES -- Boomer Esiason started feeling lousy about 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon."I don't know if it was the flu," the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback said. "It could have been some kind of food poisoning or something. I ate something yesterday on the plane that didn't seem to taste right and I ended up handing it back. That could have been it."Whatever it was, Esiason went to bed Saturday afternoon and didn't get up until about 8:40 a.m. Los Angeles time yesterday, which was the equivalent of sleeping until almost noon Cincinnati time.
