A federal judge imposed a six-year sentence Friday on Jacob Theodore George IV, who sold heroin on the online drug bazaar Silk Road. George, 33, an Edgewood man with a history of arrests, drug abuse and mental health problems, apologized to the judge. He said he cried as he confessed to the federal agents who caught him. "I made a bad decision helping with Silk Road," George said, reading from prepared notes. George, who was taken into custody in early 2012, was one of the first dealers on the site to be arrested.

I agree with Thomas F. Schaller that there is waste and imperfection in the marketplace as well as government ("Sure, government is flawed - but markets are, too," May 16), but the pivotal difference is choice. I maintain the option to purchase goods and services from competing entities in the marketplace. If I do not agree with the business practices of a certain company, a competitor will get my money. In order to increase revenue, a company must produce enough quality to elicit demand.

The state exchange is where uninsured Marylanders — estimated to number 800,000 — can buy health plans under the Affordable Care Act. The delays were announced at a meeting Friday of the board that oversees the exchange.

An undercover federal agent in Maryland played a key role in the shutdown Wednesday of what authorities describe as a massive online drug marketplace, owned by a 29-year-old engineer who authorities say schemed to kill perceived rivals. Authorities say Ross William Ulbricht built his Silk Road site into a Deep Web marketplace where buyers and sellers traded more than $1 billion in illegal narcotics using the virtual - and virtually untraceable - currency called Bitcoin. Ulbricht is accused of serving "several thousand drug dealers" since January 2011.
