Dis­cus­sion

READ­ERS HAD A VO­RA­CIOUS AP­PETITE for June’s cover story about a venomous but tasty in­vader. “Lion­fish ’n’ chips, any­one?” Alex A. Marin sug­gested on Face­book. Frances Argo took the bait: “Great ar­ti­cle about how to save the reefs and fill our tum­mies at the same time.” Read­ers rec­om­mended other ed­i­ble in­va­sive species, in­clud­ing Asian carp from the Great Lakes and blue cat­fish from Ch­e­sa­peake Bay. Our col­umn about the pro­fes­sional base­ball player Betsy Jochum (“League of Her Own”) jolted Nancy Vi­tali of Palm Beach, Florida: “She was my gym teacher in South Bend, In­di­ana, back in the ’50s. What a tal­ented, spe­cial woman ath­lete!” And Diana Prince added her voice to our timely trib­ute to Fred Rogers (“The Re­al­ity of Make-Be­lieve”): “The kind­ness I learned from Mis­ter Rogers im­pacts ev­ery per­son in my life, in­clud­ing the strangers I meet ev­ery day.”
