Artist Praises Critic

Dear Bay Weekly:
Thanks so much for Carrie Steele’s wonderful article [“Gary Jameson and Colleen Sabo at ArtWorks at 7th,” Vol. xiii, No 28, July 14]. This morning when I played tennis, my friends mentioned how terrific it is. 
Carrie’s writing is beautiful, and this is the first ever review of a show I’ve had. I’ll treasure it. I’m thrilled she liked my abstracts so much; her words made me want to go see them again!
Is there a way Bay Weekly can continue the listing in 8 Days a Week while the show is ongoing?

— Colleen Sabo, Calvert County
Editor’s note: To keep our readers up to date, the On Exhibit section of 8 Days a Week lists art exhibits through their duration.

Burton Scores On “Bridge to Sprawl”

Dear Bay Weekly:
Nice piece on the bridge controversy. Certainly affects my quality of life if the thing goes across from Calvert County. Just look at Kent Island. I joked decades ago about Chesapeake future shock, with a “Louis L. Goldstein Memorial Bridge crossing from Solomons metro complex to Taylor’s Island City, and the hue and cry was rising about repairs to the magnetohydrodynamic drive conduits causing traffic backups again.”
The late Sen. Malkus’ comment on where the musrkats would go made me muse: It’s interesting the Eastern “Sho’” has sent the Western a recent gift with the stupidly introduced nutria having somehow swum the Bay and showed up in the St Leonard Creek watershed. My neighbor’s dog brought up a dead one from the beach and there was one the other day, killed where Route 2-4 crosses beleaguered Quaker Swamp. Shades of a coming ecological disaster, just in time to join the mute swan population they sent us in the 1990s.

—Kent Mountford, Lusby

Department of Corrections

State Sen. Paula Hollinger is running to succeed 3rd District Congressman Ben Cardin, not in competition with him to succeed Paul Sarbanes in the U.S. Senate. Thanks to reader Dawn Stoltzfus for noting the error in Politalk, Vol. xiii, No. 29: July 21.

In “Fishing in Therapeutic Waters” [Vol. xiii: No. 29], David Cowan is the Walter Reed epidemiologist who organized the fishing trip for injured veterans.
