Open Session: What readers think

Fideo lover: I am Mexican-American, and I have to tell you that I was delighted to see the article on fideo ('Fideo lovers crave the Tex-Mex pasta,' March 29). It's the pasta of choice at my house. The children love it with tortillas on the side - a delicious, filling meal in itself. I like it with fresh-cooked pinto beans, mixed with a hot chili pequin tomato salsa.

Fideo is not only a Tex-Mex pasta, but a Nebraskeña pasta.

A budding artist: As native Iowans, my family knew all about CAPPER'S. My sister and I learned to read with CAPPER'S and Capper's Farmer.

I am 79 this year, and I still read CAPPER'S. I especially enjoyed the April 26 'Space Place.' The budding young artist, Grant Evans, 7, works with a lot of creativity, realism and precision for one so young. I hope his parents encourage him to continue with his artwork.
