LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

G eorge Barnes and Allen Hale are folk artists, and they have the credentials to prove it. Neither has extensive art training. They work only with materials they find on hand. They make objects they like before they wonder if someone else will like them, too.

Anya Von Bremzen's cookbook, "Please to the Table," offers the definitive word on Russian cooking, which bears the stamp of the exotic cuisines of Central Asia and the Middle East and boldly borrows also from French, Polish, and German cookery.

Also the crawfish, part folksy tourist icon, part sci-fi space monster; the intersection of sports and education; the divergence of budgets and performing; and the nature of art.
