Art Outside festival was a delight

Fred Rasmussen wrote a terrific article about Sunday's inaugural Art Outside at Druid Hill Park ("Arts patron revives Druid Hill outdoor festival," May 17).

The event was outstanding, bringing the city back together in a beautiful setting. Many communities came together to support this wonderful day.

Just like the art show of the '60s, Art Outside was festive, entertaining, relaxing and social. People got to enjoy special artists work in various medium — music, magic, painting, jewelry, clay, etc. It was a wonderful and special event that I hope will continue. Its concept was resurrected with the dream and persistence of Barbara Shapiro, a civic-minded citizen who wanted to bring the arts alive around the area.

I hope that the city will take this and run with it. The foundation is set and the community is ready!

    What's wrong with a 'glam mom?'

    I read Wednesday Martin's commentary in the New York Times last Sunday and thought the "glam moms" she studied made a great choice (and were also extremely lucky) ("Poor Little Rich Women," May 17)!

    Obama's costly foreign policy failures

    Peter Morici produced a fine piece of writing and logic ("The poverty of Obama's foreign policy," May 20). But he should give some credit to President Barack Obama's self-proclaimed "successes" in Iraq, Yemen and Libya.
