It was heartening to see current and past midshipmen speak openly of the salutary effect on the U.S. Naval Academyof repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy ("Mids describe smooth transition from 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,'" May 21). Your article, however, overlooked one important consequence of this change - the impact on the classroom. Since arriving at the Naval Academy 12 years ago, I have felt that one of its greatest strengths is the bond of trust between faculty and students, a bond much more profound than the enforced respect of military culture.

Baltimore's theater community got even more diverse last year with the arrival of an ensemble devoted to the work of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender artists. Iron Crow Theatre Company opened its first full season last fall with "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" and the arresting premiere of "Apartment 213," a play about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, written, directed and performed by Joseph Ritsch, one of the troupe's founding members. The season continued in the spring with the decidedly off-beat "Swimming in the Shallows," which included a boy-meets-shark romance.
