The Iron Man Goeth
As a friend of Steve Yeager and a reader of City Paper, I was surprised that your editors chose to print Marie Capp's letter regarding Mike Giuliano's review of Divine and Mr. Yeager's reported comments about the play (The Mail, June 27). In fact, Ms. Capp's letter indicates that her information was second- or thirdhand; it is clear that she has no direct knowledge about what Mr. Yeager actually said or thought about the play. Giving credibility to this kind of gossip-mongering impugns the reputation of City Paper and contributes nothing to the honest debate about the merits of any given work of art.
Correction: In our response to Baltimore Development Corp. President M. J. Brodie's letter last week in Mail, we incorrectly stated the salary raise range for officials of BDC listed in the city's budget for Fiscal Year 2001 and proposed for FY 2002. The range of pay increases is 8 to 9.4 percent. We regret the error.
