President Obama visited the Islamic Society of Baltimore on Wednesday in Catonsville.  In the crowd, Baltimore Imam Earl el-Amin and Muslim educator Danette Zaghari-Mask  listened to his plea for greater religious tolerance. They’ll share their thoughts on the President’s first visit to an American mosque.

Then, Jed Deitz and Ann Hornaday pick their Oscar favorites, and talk about the lack of racial diversity in this year’s list of Academy Award nominees.  

Finally, J. Wynn Rousuck reviews a new version of the “Phantom of the Opera,” along with Gil Sandler's  Baltimore Story.
