O'Malley asks Md. employees for vigilance

By Washington Post editors

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) is asking all state employees for continued vigilance a day after two small incendiary devices were sent to state buildings, Maryland Politics reports.

"I wanted take a moment to assure you -- our valuable state workforce -- that we are taking this matter seriously and we continue to take precautions to protect the public safety and our public employees," O'Malley said in an email.

The packages, addressed to O'Malley and his secretary of transportation at separate locations, contained incendiary devices that flashed, smoked and produced an odor when they were opened, causing minor injuries to two employees and putting officials around the Washington region on alert.
