This is just a note to let you know that I enjoy your newspaper in general, especially your local views and the semi-investigative articles on your local political machines, heroes, and villains. One thing you do not seem to have enough of are reviews and reports on the painters and sculptors of this region and the shows that are in great abundance here. Your article on Walter Ratzat (“Who Is That Man in the Mirror?” 3/3) shows that artists (of all media) lead normal and unusual lives just like everyone else—as a nice generalization.
