Fred Rasmussen wrote a terrific article about Sunday's inaugural Art Outside at Druid Hill Park ("Arts patron revives Druid Hill outdoor festival," May 17). The event was outstanding, bringing the city back together in a beautiful setting. Many communities came together to support this wonderful day. Just like the art show of the '60s, Art Outside was festive, entertaining, relaxing and social. People got to enjoy special artists work in various medium - music, magic, painting, jewelry, clay, etc. It was a wonderful and special event that I hope will continue.

I got a chance yesterday to see Martin Scorcese's movie "Hugo," a delightful story based around the life of movie pioneer Georges Méliès. It was part of my New Year's resolution to see more literary adaptations, and I couldn't have picked a better place to start. The movie is based on Brian Selznick's Caldecott medal-winner "The Invention of Hugo Cabret," which weaves together the tales of Méliès and an orphaned boy who lives in a Paris train station. It has a fantasy-like feel, as the little boy traipses around early 20th Century Paris and learns about the men who made magic on the big screen.

BOONSBORO -- In three months on the Appalachian Trail, Jim Parkins has met a federal judge, a doctor, countless Boy Scouts, marijuana-smoking college graduates, and a married couple who celebrate their anniversary each year by feeding hikers for a week.

Aushuk, check. Kofta challow, check. Kaddo borwani, check. The everlasting pleasures at The Helmand are still in place, and still wonderful. For the uninitiated, aushuk are soft, pillowy squares of ravioli-like pasta, filled with meltingly soft leeks, served on a shallow pool of minted yogurt and topped with a mildly spiced ground beef sauce. The kofta challow (challow means "rice") is a luscious entree of lamb and beef meatballs seasoned with turmeric and paprika in a tomato-based sauce with hot green peppers and green peas.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to hear someone say how lucky we are to have such a fine man as Barack Obama as our president, and that he gave an inspiring talk to us in the State of the Union ("Obama focuses on the economy," Jan. 29)? Instead, the pundits delight in analyzing and criticizing his speech, forgetting to remind us that he is an idealistic, intelligent and good man - a credit to the America he represents. Forget whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, rejoice in the quality of our leadership and what he demonstrates about America to the entire world.

So far, John C. Boland goes his scheming way unmolested. But around the corner of a street or building something waits - to jump out at him. That something, for the author of half a dozen thrillers by now, is the blare of reader favor.It used to be a long wait between good suspense novels with a Maryland setting; now, any year brings several. So a novelist has to offer more, and in his latest, "The Margin" (St. Martin's Press. 232 pages. $21.95), Mr. Boland does that: Besides rugged Bay sailing, sleek Shore weekending, corporate headquarters in Timonium, an apartment overlooking the Harbor and an inn near Libertytown, he tours investment banking.

"Don and I spent a lot of our free time, when we were still living in Bel Air, exploring various towns, festivals, art shows, restaurants, museums, [and] flea markets, always dreaming …that it would be fun to live in a place where we could walk to everything," Karyn Haasen recalled.
