Branch offices of the state Motor Vehicle Administration could not complete some transactions for about an hour yesterday morning because a glitch kept them from connecting with the agency's mainframe computer, officials said. The glitch was the result of a software update over the weekend and was discovered when branch offices opened at 8:30 a.m. yesterday. The problem was fixed and the system was back up by 9:35. MVA offices were shut down for a day in August when the agency's computers crashed because of a computer virus.

Gov. Martin O'Malley thinks that if you don't pay taxes, you shouldn't get an auto license ( "Driver's licenses, vehicle registrations may be denied over owed taxes," Feb. 2). Result: many drivers without licenses, unregulated by the Motor Vehicle Administration and without liability insurance. Maybe there's a good reason why Maryland would be one of the few states to approve such a law. Jim Astrachan, Baltimore

City prosecutors and police said DNA evidence provided critical help in reopening the investigation into the death of Jada Danita Lambert and led to the indictment of Roy S. Davis, who is serving a state prison sentence in Hagerstown for armed robbery. The murder of Lambert was one of about 4,000 city homicide and sexual assault cold cases that include potential DNA evidence that is being methodically tested by private labs.

At first glance, the front plate on Ed McMichael's white 1991 Plymouth Acclaim looks like anyone else's. The registration numbers and letters are in order. But "Maryland," which should ++ appear at the top center of the plate, appears upside down in the bottom center."That's a rarity," Mr. McMichael said, a big grin spreading across his face, proud as a new father. The Myersville man said he got the tags when he moved recently from Virginia to Maryland.State officials are at a loss to explain it. State Motor Vehicle Administration spokesman Jim Lang advised Mr. McMichael to trade in his plates for new ones, suggesting the defective tag might attract "unnecessary" attention from the police -- or, worse, from thieves.
