The train wreck of Maryland's Affordable Care Act insurance exchange should have been no surprise to Gov. Martin O'Malley, Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown or anyone else responsible for its creation. That's the unmistakable conclusion from a Washington Post article on Sunday based on not-previously disclosed documents and interviews with key participants. The Post's report fleshes out the story of dysfunction revealed in records obtained last month by The Sun through a public information request and leaves no doubt that state officials were warned repeatedly and in detail that the website was, in one former official's words, "a disaster waiting to happen.

Ever since Mitt Romney lost the presidential election, there's been a lot of talk about how the Republican Party needs to "rebrand" itself. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal wants, among other things, for the GOP to stop being "the stupid party. " Rep. Paul Ryan has concluded that the watchword for the Republican Party needs to be "prudence. " Sen. Marco Rubio is the front man for the most tangible aspect of the rebranding effort: getting on the right side of the immigration issue. In the process, he's become something of the de facto point person for the party.

After completing a successful two-weekend inaugural run of Christopher Durang's Beyond Therapy, the Bay Theatre Company now seems established as a dynamic presence on the Annapolis scene. In its first weeks of operation, this new company has created theater magic - first by transforming a nondescript space in Truxtun Park's Griscom Building into a cozy theater, then by selling every seat Saturday evening. Formed by Annapolis residents Lucinda Merry-Browne and Janet Luby, the company has set the bar high with this production that features a talented repertory group of actors who have a wonderful time becoming the characters they play.

Last week, the board that governs Baltimore County's employee pension system reduced its projection for investment return from 7.875 percent to 7.25 percent, a significant cut as these things go. The trustees of Maryland's much-larger pension plan considered a reduction as well but ultimately voted to keep a 7.75 percent estimate at a meeting Tuesday. For a pension system to recalculate rate of return is hardly new. This is done periodically as the long-term economic outlook changes.

Kudos to Comptroller Peter Franchot for voting against the big piano purchase by Bowie State University ("Franchot plays off-key," Nov. 18). Proof that someone that is in charge of watching how our money is spent is doing his job. Thank you. Unfortunately, he was defeated by his fellow members of the Board of Public Works, Gov. Martin O'Malley and Treasurer Nancy Kopp, who approved the deal. johngalt14

Within the next several days, legislation to cut the Title X (ten) family planning grant program will be considered by the U.S. House of Representatives.

Hours before Prudence Mabhena performs for a packed house at Maryland Institute College of Art's Brown Center for the local premiere of the Oscar-winning short documentary "Music by Prudence," she is relaxing in her guest room, watching MTV as she greets an interviewer. "We can get MTV in Zimbabwe, you know," she says, with a toothy grin. It's a casual conversational stroke that immediately puts you at ease and also conveys how savvy she is and how internationally ambitious. "Music by Prudence" came to life partly because of early financial, technical and creative support from MICA and its chief of film and video arts, Patrick Wright (who gets co-producer and assistant editor credits)
