Thank you for an interesting article on a topic that is of great interest to us here at the Libraries at Johns Hopkins (“Scanners,” Books, March 2). We are part of a group called the HathiTrust, which is bringing large research university libraries together in a digitization effort of millions of volumes in our collections to ensure access for scholars and preservation of this information. You can see more information here:

Again, thank you for the article.

Serving Local Flavor since 1977

I am taking the time to write you, as it is publications like City Paper where many of us who travel frequently get our “local flavor.” I spend much time traveling and have business in Baltimore a few times per year. It is now habit for me to grab a copy of City Paper when in town. Specifically, it is the local dining options that I seek. Like many who travel, I see the same chains in every city.

On my last visit, I had lunch—and then dinner the next night—at a wonderful local place that I never would have known about if it were not for City Paper. Maisy’s is absolutely a hidden gem in your city! Quite simply, I rank Maisy’s right at the top in my travels, when all is considered. The staff (and even the owner) were absolutely wonderful and actually did care how my experience was in town. The food was excellent, no matter what we ordered, and was not expensive at all. I would have expected to spend twice as much (and do frequently) when entertaining business associates. This is now my spot when in town.

I would not have found Maisy’s if not for City Paper. Thank you and keep the local flavor coming!

Corrections: The painting “Shine on the Sun,” pictured on page 43 of the March 9 edition of our Baltimore Weekly calendar, is by Daniel Everett, not Grant Whipple as was mistakenly indicated in the caption.

The IED-IUD CD-R reviewed in last week’s Music section (Know Your Product, March 9) came packaged in a nitrile glove, not a latex glove, and bandmember David Litz played in Vincent Black Shadow, not Sri Aurobindo.

City Paper regrets the errors.

Editor’s note: This week, we introduce a guest column to the paper, a place where folks other than our regular brace of columnists can sound off. It’s called The Writer’s Block, and you’ll find Barry Michael Cooper’s musings on the 20th anniversary of New Jack City, which he wrote, under that banner on page 7. And hey, if you’ve got an idea for a prospective piece, it couldn’t hurt to e-mail Lee Gardner at
