Punters don't usually create a lot of waves, but Sam Koch rocked the boat a little bit with his successful two-point conversion in the Ravens' season-opening thrashing of the Pittsburgh Steelers. After quarterback Joe Flacco connected with tight end Ed Dickson on an 18-yard touchdown strike on their first offensive play of the third quarter, Koch, who was holding for kicker Billy Cundiff, took the snap and ran through a hole created by the left side of the offensive line into the end zone.

Known as the "boat people," they desperately, and often fatally, tried to escape Communist retaliation after the fall of Saigon. With the imminent American withdrawal from Afghanistan and the total ineptitude of the central government, it is extremely likely that the Taliban will eventually regain control of the country and will reimpose their strict version of Islam ( "Karzai's blame game," Feb. 2)

It prohibits retaliation against employees for reporting waste, fraud, and abuse. " With this directive, issued last week, Obama hands national security and intelligence community whistleblowers and their advocates an important victory in their frequently frustrating efforts to expand protection against retaliation for federal employees who expose agency misconduct.
