To many, the idea sounded preposterous. And on Friday, the Cambridge, Mass., Police Department acknowledged that it was. Earlier this week, police officers in the otherwise enlightened community, home of Harvard University, shared their theories on pepper spray with a local reporter. Pepper spray doesn't work so well on Mexican American suspects, the officers said. Why? Because Mexicans grow up eating too much spicy food, and because they spend so much time picking hot peppers in the fields.

To some police officers, President Obama was merely speaking the truth about how a certain department behaved in a difficult situation. To others, he committed the unpardonable sin of sticking his nose where it does not belong. When Obama accused Cambridge, Mass., police officers Wednesday of acting "stupidly" when they arrested his friend, Harvard University scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr.

President Obama on Wednesday injected himself into the national debate over how law enforcement treats minorities. Responding to a question during his news conference, Obama said that the Cambridge, Mass., Police Department had acted "stupidly" in arresting his friend, prominent African American scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. The Harvard University professor was handcuffed and charged with disorderly conduct last week after police responded to a possible break-in at his home.

Robert Woodruff will step down as artistic director of the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass., and return to his native New York, where he will continue to direct and teach, the theater announced Thursday. Woodruff, who joined the Harvard University-affiliated theater in 2001, will leave after his contract ends in 2007. He programmed five seasons "of some of the most distinguished productions" in the theater's 26-year history, executive director Robert Orchard said in a statement.

The Cambridge, Mass., City Council voted unanimously to enact a first-in-the-nation ban on commercial laboratory testing of animals within the city. The ban will affect research on more than 50,000 animals that is now occurring within the six-square-mile city, officials estimated. The animals are used to test cosmetics, tobacco products, industrial chemicals, pesticides and engine exhaust.

This famously liberal city is serving notice that illegal immigrants are welcome, even while Congress is considering tough new penalties. Police won't harass you. Education and healthcare are available. Here's the hitch: You probably can't afford to live here. Back in 1985, when Cambridge first declared itself a "sanctuary city," rent control kept apartments affordable.

For those who like a bit of intellectual stimulation on holiday, some of America's university towns and cities can offer a delightful version of an exciting urban vacation--and inexpensive, too, because many local attractions and dining spots are geared toward student budgets. There are few more splendid college towns to vacation in than Cambridge, Mass., home to Harvard, Radcliffe and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

I was dismayed to see your clam chowder recipe ("Culinary SOS", August 2) The recipe from Legal Seafood Restaurant, a restaurant originally founded in Cambridge, MA where I lived for 15 years, and now a chain in New England, is a tribute to the bastardized recipes true aficianados like myself find traitorous. A properly made New England clam chowder is a dish to preach about, a dish to sing hymns for, to fight for. Just as a proper chili con carne never has beans or tomatoes in it, a true clam chowder should never contain flour, cream, and certainly never fish broth (might as well call it fish soup)
