The 'powerful' city jail task force

The only thing more amusing than Gov. Martin O'Malley's response to the incompetence and negligence of yet another of his state agencies (in this case, the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services) by calling a "task force" ("O'Malley forms task force on city jail," May 28), is his denomination of it as a "powerful new weapon in our arsenal."

He should be a carnival barker.
