Kudos to Japan Rail and its promoters in the U.S. for their ingenuity and persistence in advancing the fortunes of magnetic levitation rail along the Northeast Corridor from Washington, D.C. to New York ( "Billions lined up for 'maglev,'" Sept. 4). As the project manager for past studies of Baltimore-Washington maglev feasibility for the federal and state transportation departments, I am convinced that 300 mile per hour rail service from Washington to Baltimore and ultimately on to New York will revolutionize travel along the Northeast and transform the recreational, business, tourist and commuter travel between Northeast cities.

Walk through a graffiti-tagged corridor, under a light rail bridge, past the cars hurtling down the Jones Falls Expressway and you've entered what some believe could become a wonderland. A group called Section 1 envisions a skate park built under a labyrinth of highway support columns. They see concrete walls as canvases for street artists. A weedy lot, the setting for food truck rallies and art fairs. And an overgrown field near CSX tracks could hold a concert stage with space for an audience of thousands.

Regarding the April 4 story "Sharfstein tells Congress contractors are to blame," it is almost unreal to see how all the leaders in Maryland government, particularly Health Secretary Joshua Sharfstein and Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, are all trying to slip any accountability in wasting $200 million or more of taxpayers' money. There is simply no accountability at any level in the Maryland government. Here's how this situation would play out in private sector where I work: CEO: "Tell me Sharfstein/Brown, what happened here?"

At NASA Goddard Space Flight Center last month, Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski and space agency Administrator Charles Bolden stressed the importance of maintaining budget support for the James Webb Space Telescope, keeping it on track for a 2018 launch. Sticking to that schedule is the job of the Webb telescope's project manager, Bill Ochs, who, from his office on the Greenbelt campus, oversees all of the moving parts slated to come together and be blasted into space in 41/2 years. It's a complicated job, Ochs acknowledged, but since new development and spending plans were approved three years ago for the delayed and over-budget project, things have been running smoothly.

Joel Haddock and Chris Klimas regularly have, what they call, a "date night. " No dinner. No movie. Nothing like that. To them, "date night" is working on a personal project - Twofold Secret, an independent gaming studio the two founded in 2010. It consists of huddling at the kitchen table at one of their homes, hammering out issues and planning a week-by-week game plan for whatever project they're working on. The co-founders met as undergraduates at Washington College in Chestertown when the two were neighbors in their college dorm, and discovered they both had an interest in games.
