The Walters' big fall exhibit celebrates four larger-than-life heroes from Greek mythology: Achilles, Odysseus, Hercules - and, um, Helen of Troy, an unfaithful wife who caused a war that wreaked havoc on two cities. Under what criteria could Helen even conceivably be considered a "hero"? Might she be more accurately termed a celebrity? Wasn't she merely the 12th century B.C. equivalent of Britney Spears, whose romances and legal scrapes vastly entertained the citizenry? Regine Schulz, curator of ancient art at the Walters Art Museum, begs to differ.

Stepping in for Grimaud will be Angela Hewitt, who last appeared on the series in 2012. A noted Bach specialist, Hewitt will perform "The Art of Fugue" (complete) for the Shriver Hall recital, a work she has recently recorded.

"What in God's name am I looking at? Camels and pyramids? Not three, but dozens of Wise Men? Owls with old motorcar headlights for eyes? Peacocks with more color and glitter than the real birds?"This is the way the character of Elsa, a young teacher, describes her first impression of real-life Afrikaner artist Helen Martins' eccentric home and yard, her "Mecca," in Athol Fugard's 1984 play, "The Road to Mecca.""She's mad. No question about it," Elsa continues. But "The Road to Mecca" isn't about a mad artist.

I appreciate the flattering article that my friend, Duncan Hunter Sr., had published in The Sun on Tuesday ( "Helen Bentley is still tough and kind today," Nov. 26). However, there are a couple of facts I would like to straighten out. In the discussion with President Ronald Reagan that Mr. Hunter recounted, I was pushing for all blue collar workers, not just maritime workers. In the discussion with Admiral William Crowe, chief of naval operations, who presented to the entire House of Representatives about the Soviet might (the Cold War was on)

The place was the U.S. House of Representatives. The time was the mid-1980s. I was a relative newcomer to Congress from California, and the Republican conference was hosting President Ronald Reagan. The president, beloved by the members, was coasting through a question-and-answer session, fielding the mostly "softball" questions with his legendary charm. Then Helen Delich Bentley, even more of a newcomer than I, stepped to the microphone. Her question was typical Bentley - blunt and reflective of the interests of the blue collar folks she represented.

Letter writer Jerry Levin's assessment of the journalist Helen Thomas as a "hateful old bigot" because she dared to criticize Israel's treatment of the Palestinians could not be further from the truth ( "Helen Thomas was a path breaker - but also a bigot," July 27). Thomas was a competent White House correspondent for 50 years who was fired because she was not afraid to speak out against Israel's atrocities against the Palestinians. In 2011, the website Salon.org complained that "advocacy of Israeli positions has replaced professional qualifications as the criteria for service.

Susan Reimer 's column about pioneering female journalist Helen Thomas makes light of Ms. Thomas' vicious comments about Jews that ended her career ( "Helen Thomas opened journalism for women," July 25). Ms. Thomas' views were not simply "intemperate" and "abrasive" - they were hateful and uninformed. For example, her May 2010 remark that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and "go home" to Poland and Germany not only rejected Israel's right to exist but also showed contempt for the traumatic legacy of the Holocaust.

Regarding Susan Reimer 's column ( "Helen Thomas opened journalism for women," July 25), Helen Thomas' comments on Israel and Zionism were more than "unacceptable" and "intemperate," they were insulting. Rather than question their own far-fetched notions, people like Ms. Thomas chalk up their unpopularity to conspiracies and domination by "Zionists. " Her ideas about the Jewish state may have greater resonance in Europe (with its history of anti-Jewish ideas and actions) and the Middle East (wrapped up in the Israel-Arab dispute)

In the movie "Animal House," the Deltas are put on trial for their antics. When offered a chance to defend themselves, the best argument the fraternity's president can come up with is, "But sir, Delta Tau Chi has a long tradition of existence to its members and to the community at large. " The line came to mind as I read through the obituaries for Helen Thomas, the longtime White House correspondent for UPI and, for a decade, a left-wing columnist for the Hearst newspapers. Ms. Thomas did help break down the barriers to women in the D.C. press corps.

Helen Thomas, the cranky White House correspondent who once said that there is no such thing as a rude question from a reporter, died last week at 92, her pioneering reputation tarnished by a streak of anger her role as a journalist had masked. After United Press International, where she had worked for 57 years (49 as its chief White House correspondent), was purchased by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church in 2000, she resigned. But she was hired shortly thereafter by Hearst Newspapers as a political columnist, writing for another decade.

Helen Thomas may have been a pioneer for women attending press conferences at the White House, but she also had faults that should not be overlooked ("Pioneering journalist broke D.C. glass ceiling," July 21). She was abrasive, arrogant, rude and repetitive in her questioning, leaving a number of presidents, press secretaries and foreign dignitaries, including Margaret Thatcher, disturbed by her tactics. She never failed to show her anti-Israel bias at the White House news conferences, where she always launched into a tirade against Israel that bordered on anti-Semitism before her questioning began.
