Thank you for highlighting 50 women leaders from our region ( "50 women to watch in Baltimore," July 22). I was dismayed, however, to see that the women in the feature photos were dressed in evening gowns! Really? These women are not movie stars competing in a pageant (with one exception), or attending a charity gala. They should have been portrayed in business attire. The evening gown photos are an unwelcome distraction from the substance of the article. Sue Royer, Lutherville

We all know how burning, muggy summers can tempt us into making questionable style choices for the office: bare legs, cleavage-baring tops, flip-flops, and probably the biggest offense of all - wearing shorts in the cubicle. So this week, as the temperatures climb to the 90s, humidity in tow, we should pay special attention to our workplace attire. It can be the difference between spending the rest of the day in company-paid air-conditioning or trudging back home in the heat to try your luck again.

Finally, we can dust off our palms and rock back on our heels with a smirk of pride on our faces.

From the sneakers on his feet, to the retro jersey on his back, to the do-rag on his head, Allen Iverson is a proud product of hip-hop culture. He's also among the best paid endorsers and biggest on-court stars in the National Basketball Association. Behind players like Iverson, the league has built a relationship with youth culture that transcends sport. Kids and the music stars they love wear basketball shoes and NBA "throwback" jerseys. Many NBA players don the same attire. It's a symbiosis that has earned the league millions of dollars, marketers agree.
