If there's one place which has absolutely no right to judge others, it is Baltimore City ("Columbia drab? Duh," Dec. 16). And I say that kindly - and lovingly. I grew up in Baltimore, and I'm the first to defend it. Who better than a former citizen to understand a city's beauty and its flaws? Baltimore has always been odd, if not downright weird. I was raised on stories of farming pigs in chain-linked Hampden gardens. I ate shrimp salad sandwiches, smiling at the toothless and nigh incomprehensible wash-and-set dinner ladies at Cross Street Market.

I am writing in support of the plan to transform Symphony Woods into an arts district. I am a life-long resident of Columbia, among the first generation to call Columbia my home town. As a child, my parents took me to the petting zoo that was in Symphony Woods. Now, I live in Owen Brown with my wife and children. This is an exciting plan, and it strikes an important balance. Putting the CA headquarters on-site provides a built-in user base for, well, every amenity in the park, from pathway to cafe.

Bob Duggan frequently refers to "our national disease-care system" when he talks about his new book, employing a term he has used across his 40-plus years as a healing-arts clinician and educator. As co-founder and former president of Tai Sophia Institute, a North Laurel graduate school of complementary medicine, wellness-based education and research, he believes that labeling our current system "health care" is a gigantic misnomer — and a point of national disgrace. In "Breaking the Iron Triangle: Reducing Health-Care Costs in Corporate America," Duggan offers a vision of a sustainable, wellness-based future in which corporations and entrepreneurs are able to slash rising health-care costs by investing in programs that focus on wellness instead of disease.

We just bought a house in Owen Brown and are concerned about the noise coming from Merriweather. We knew about the concerts and were told it has not been an issue in our area. Two weeks ago, we did not hear much noise from two concerts. However, the night of July 15 until 11 the noise was coming into our house, even though all the windows and doors were closed. We live almost two miles away in the opposite direction of where the pavilion faces. Most concerning was the noise disturbed sleep for our 16-month-old.

I hit the pathways this morning for the first time since the big blow this weekend. I saw two or three Columbia Association workers out there, and evidence that they'd already been hard at work, in the form of a couple of big trees cut into little pieces after they'd been knocked across the paths by the gusts at Irene's hem. But there's still plenty left for the workmen to do. I had to navigate my bicycle around about half a dozen fallen trees,...
