You missed a teachable moment in your front-page report on the St. Maurice Award of Merit conferred on Maryland's "vanishing warriors" ( "Honoring World War II foot soldiers," Jan. 13). Nowhere was there any reference to the individual for whom the award was originally named. He was a remarkable African general who did not bow to the will of the Romans and was featured in the 2012 Walters Art Museum exhibition "Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe. " The exhibit was an overwhelming success among Baltimoreans and regional visitors.

IN DECEMBER 1993 an injustice was righted in the case of Paul Grueninger, a police captain in the Swiss Canton of Saint-Gallen.Fifty-four years previously, Grueninger, in obedience to the directives of his heart and his conscience, had saved 3,000 despairing Austrian Jews by ordering the border guards of his province to let them cross into Switzerland. This was in violation of the Swiss federal government's orders, which had closed the borders in August, 1938.For this compassionate act, Captain Grueninger was dismissed from his post.

First impressions are important, and Switzerland's Lake Geneva Region has the art down pat:Dazzle visitors with sun-brightened mountains beneath a crisp blue sky, a city of medieval splendors and a network of neatly combed vineyards marching primly across flirtatious hills, and you've won their hearts forever. Such scenic attractions might well have been plagiarized from Paradise.Hard to believe that this region suffers from an image problem. The Lake Geneva Region, which is within the canton of Vaud, is frequently confused with the nearby city of Geneva, a canton or state in the Swiss republic.

THE AMERICA'S Cup - one of the sporting world's oldest and most prestigious trophies - is about a lot of things, among them wealth, rule-bending, obnoxious behavior, a visual spectacle that beats watching paint dry (most of the time), and more wealth. It does have one nonnegotiable element: salt water. And yet the Swiss won it. They won't even be able to defend it properly - they've got nowhere to race. Even if they dumped all the salt in Utah into Lake Geneva, they still wouldn't have an ocean.
