Letters

I hope you know how much your continued coverage of dance by the indefatigable Jowitt (and her colleagues) means to dance lovers worldwide. Thank you, thank you, for continuing to provide this critical column to the community.

CLOTHED COLONY

In Sylvana Foa's Letter From Gaza ["No Exit," August 14-20], she writes, "And women, whether Arab or foreign, no longer dare to appear on the beach in a bathing suit."

Actually, Gazan women have never gone to the beach in bathing suits, but always fully clothed. Partially clothed Arab women can be found, in the Middle East, only in Lebanon or Morocco.

IT'S ONLY A NORTHERN SONG

Chanel Lee mistakenly said the song "New York City," which she mentions in "Close-Up on: Co-op City" [August 14-20], was "by the Brooklyn-based band They Might Be Giants." TMBG's version is a cover; it was originally penned and performed by the Vancouver-based band Cub.

BAD BUD

What an enchanting portrait of Bud Selig by Ward Harkavy ["Once a Car Dealer . . . ," August 14-20]. How can a man be raking in so much money and be such a buffoon? When Max Patkin [Bill Veeck's contortionist-cum-baseline coach] died, I thought baseball had lost its last clown. Not so, we found out at the 2002 All-Star (tie) game.
