Darrow Montgomery’s work always shows sensitivity for subjects, place, and time. The image on Page 3 of the 3/7 edition is extraordinary. Thanks for providing a venue for this artist’s work.

In contrast, I have no idea why trees died for Cathy Alter’s Ugly American tirade about wedding apparel (“Wedded Dis,” same issue). The style seemed more appropriate for a personal ad (“5-11, size 6

Manhattan beanpole ISO simple,

low-maintenance, proportionally sized SWG. Those with entanglements need not apply”). One hopes for the best for Ms. Alter and her intended, as well as for her prospective husband.
