Warshan Hussin didn't speak English and knew only other Iraqis in the area when he moved to Baltimore in 2010. He was depressed and felt that people were always making fun of him behind his back. But that changed when he discovered Soccer Without Borders, a free international program located in Nicaragua, Uganda and seven locations around the United States that uses soccer to help refugees, asylees and immigrants acclimate to their new community. Now, four years after joining Soccer Without Borders, Hussin is fluent in English and knows he has an opportunity to go to college.

As the former president of the Baltimore chapter of the American Advertising Federation, I was disturbed to read that the city has elected to hire and pay a New York firm nearly $300,000 to revamp its website ("City to pay $286K for website overhaul," Jan. 15). Surely if the city had looked, it could have found more than a sufficient number of candidates in the city. Firms whose employees live in the city, pay city income and residential real estate taxes. Firms whose landlords pay real estate taxes that benefit the city.

It was a quiet night for a revolution. People at the bar in Joe Squared Station North sat huddled over drinks and conversations. Folks occasionally strolled in to pick up pizza orders or headed to dining tables in the back. Few even glanced at the small group of musicians nestled by the storefront window playing Bach. But those players, members of a national movement called Classical Revolution, soldiered on for several hours, dedicated to the cause of bringing a venerable old art form into unexpected places.
