In one of the largest gifts ever received by Baltimore's Walters Art Museum , a New Mexico collector is donating some 300 pieces and promising a $4 million bequest to shine a spotlight on the art of the ancient Americas. "This is a huge development for us," said Walters director Gary Vikan, noting that the soon-to-be-created center for the study of the arts of the ancient Americas should prove especially alluring to the area's "very vibrant" Latino community. "This is a huge new ingredient in building audience for us," he said.

Cal Ripken World Series D.R. pitcher throws no-no; Md. team out In one of the all-time best pitching performances seen at the Cal Ripken World Series, the Dominican Republic's Leudy Santana struck out 14 batters en route to a no-hitter in his team's 1-0 victory over Mexico in Friday's International semifinal matchup at Cal Sr.'s Yard. The performance was validation for Santana, who struck out 16 hitters in the Dominican team's earlier pool play contest with Mexico on Monday but lost when the reigning champs scored four runs on three hits in a 4-0 victory.

In response to your editorial, "A flawed compromise on illegal immigrant tuition" (March 7), I propose a better plan. After graduating from high school, the illegal aliens should be deported back to Mexico along with their parents. There the student can enroll in a college in Mexico, and the Mexican government can pay for the student's education. After college, the student can become a productive citizen of Mexico and a part of their economy. Robert J. Stryjewski

Kudos to Firmin DeBrabander for his opinion piece on the cause of the breakdown of law and order in Mexico — the insatiable desire of Americans for drugs and our inability to deal with it ("The failed state next door," Oct. 17). In spite of spending $40 billion a year, the war on drugs has been a miserable failure. We continue to pursue this failed policy which drains our public money, claims the lives of addicts and their crime victims day after day and drives desperate Mexicans across the border to seek refuge, only to be sent back to the horrors they risked their lives to escape.

Back in June, after a particularly deadly day in his country's current drug war, Mexican President Felipe Calderon addressed his nation to soothe nerves, predict success and apportion blame. And blame he did. He notified his countrymen that their plight stems from the fact that they live next door to the biggest drug user on the planet. This astonishing claim was confirmed by Josepha Califano in an NPR interview shortly thereafter. Mexico's former Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare explained that though the U.S. comprises only 5 percent of the world's population, it uses fully two thirds of the world's illegal drugs.
