After reading Leo Bretholz's commentary on the French railroad company SNCF learning that had written about his ordeal running from the Nazis, I recently bought his book ( "No reparations, no business," March 1). While browsing through the book I noticed that Mr. Bretholz has done many appearances talking about his wartime experiences, so I decided to find out if he had any upcoming talks nearby so I could hear him in person. That's when I found out that Mr. Bretholz had passed recently away.

Leo Bretholz was easily one of the finest human beings of our time ( "Leo Bretholz, Holocaust survivor, dies," March 10). Having lived to be 93, God had certainly granted Leo the gift of years. However, he had accomplished - and was continuing to accomplish - so much that benefited so many that one tended to think he would live forever. He will be mourned by his family first and foremost, by his friends, his neighbors, his fellow Holocaust survivors and the hundreds of people with whom he shared his story in person and in his thrilling book, "Leap into Darkness.

He was 93.

I'd like to take my hat off to Ray Alcaraz for his commentary about Little Italy ( "Little Italy: perfect Baltimore," Dec. 3). There is really no place like it. There is a love for St. Leo's Church like no other. The generations of families that have lived there are never ending. It will survive.

“Patients committed here suffer not only diseases of the mind, but also of the body.” - Dr. Arthur Arden. Welcome to 1964, where Jessica Lange is no longer Constance Langdon, but Sister Jude, a badass nun with a Boston accent running the Briarcliff Manor insane asylum. Also returning is Evan Peters, no longer an angst-ridden teen ghost but an alien abductee named Kit Walker, who is detained for the murder of his wife and called “Bloody Face.” (It's a huge role reversal for Peters, who was probably tired of constantly lubing up to fit into the “Rubber Man” costume)

Announcing a run of Neil Simon's "Chapter Two" through March 3, Colonial Players' February newsletter points out that 51/2 years have elapsed since its last staging of a Simon play. Memories of the company's October 2006 production of "Jake's Women" make us wonder why it's taken so long for a Simon play to reappear at this venue, where audiences can share the life experiences of eminently recognizable characters created by the contemporary stage's most successful playwright. Well established in a 20-year writing career by 1973, Simon dealt early that year with the loss of Joan Baim, his wife of 20 years, Later that year, he met and married actress Marsha Mason.
