Thomas F. Schaller makes the usual liberal mischaracterization of conservatives by asking in his op-ed column, "Why do conservatives hate government so much?" ("How government is like insurance," June 29). Of course, this is completely inaccurate since it's excessive government that conservatives hate, not government. He lists all the benevolent things a government can do and stops just short of drawing a picture of a fireman rescuing a little girl's kitten from a tree before pointing to conservatives and asking, "How could they hate that?"

"It's the law of the land. " This is rapidly becoming the preferred shorthand argument for why criticism of Obamacare is just so, so wrong. It also serves as the lead sentence of a larger claim that all attempts to overturn the Affordable Care Act are really symptoms of a kind of extremist right-wing lunacy. For instance, here's Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who walked out of the painting "American Gothic" to deliver this homespun wisdom: "We're not going to bow to tea party anarchists who deny the mere fact that Obamacare is the law. We will not bow to tea party anarchists who refuse to accept that the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare is constitutional.

In this era of unmuzzled public vulgarity, it is tempting to think that art is significantly in the hands of a radical movement. Since art has a way of leading its culture, is this turn of the century not a time of radicalism? No. Or at least not remotely as it was a century ago. When Seattle exploded in rioting and pillage during the World Trade Organization gathering, local authorities clucked ruefully. Why, oh why, they woefully wondered, can't these Vietnam-era-throwbacks work out their protests in a reasonable, rational manner?

Don't call them flower children, they said, because that's not what they are."And I'm not a hippie, or whatever you want to call me, either. I'm just here because I see injustice being done and I want my voice heard," said protester Andrew Williams of Rockville."

ZELIA GATTAI, 91 Brazilian writer Zelia Gattai, the celebrated author of the Brazilian best-seller Anarchists, Thank God! and widow of famed Brazilian novelist Jorge Amado, died Saturday. She was hospitalized weeks ago in her home city of Salvador, the northeastern Brazilian city immortalized in Mr. Amado's novels. Her condition worsened after intestinal surgery, said Rodrigo Santa Fe, a receptionist at Bahia Hospital. Ms. Gattai was born in Sao Paulo, the daughter of Italian anarchist Ernesto Gattai.

WASHINGTON -- Of all the True Believers now spreading their message, none are more zealous than the globalists, who believe human salvation lies in the inevitable march of technology and unrestrained commerce that will bring us together into one efficient, tidy worldwide family. Who couldn't love globalization as its evangelists portray it? The world would eventually become one wired community, with information binding us together and making it impossible for tyrants to manipulate ignorant, oppressed populations.

I'M AGAINST government. Used to be you couldn't do that. Be against government, I mean. It meant you were an anarchist. Like Sacco and Vanzetti. They were anarchists, weren't they? In those days anarchists got locked up, though I think Sacco and Vanzetti were hanged or went to the chair, which is neither here nor there, and I wish I hadn't brought it up.I mention anarchy only because of my congressman. Came in here the other day, said, "Friend, you can fool some of the people all of the time, and I can tell from looking at you that you're part of that sweet-smelling, ever-loving, eternally foolable some."

As a chorus of tubas played "The First Noel" at Baltimore's Inner Harbor yesterday, Santa Claus started a fistfight with a figure he claimed was a Santa impersonator. The two Santas rolled on the bricks, swinging and clawing at each other as children watched, confused. "It's a Santa brawl!" someone shouted. But careful observers in the crowd wondered whether either combatant was the authentic Jolly Old Elf. One Santa, it seems, was wearing a gas mask, the other a skull mask beneath a red cap. And, when the scrap was over, the two Santas helped each other up - to the applause of 13 other Santas - some wearing sunglasses, combat boots and fishnet stockings along with the standard red-and-white coats.

On a recent Sunday night, three men sat at Red Emma's Bookstore and Coffeehouse, Baltimore's newest anarchist infoshop. They were there to see a screening of several films produced by the Independent Media Center. The organizer of the evening's activities, John Duda, seemed disappointed with the turnout. "Was anything else going on tonight?" he asked. One customer, with a mop of brown hair, volunteered a reason why so few comrades-in-arms turned out for the event: "The Anarchists Union and the Women's Healthcare Collective meet on Sunday nights," he said.

Presidential elections always challenge the press: The pace of events and competitive pressure invariably war with the media's duties to provide balance and perspective. Readers, viewers and listeners inevitably become more critical news consumers as their personal preferences solidify. This year, the polls instruct us, the country is likely to approach November so exquisitely divided that serious analysts actually wonder whether Michael Moore's anti-administration agitprop might tip the electoral scales.

One hundred years ago today, at seven minutes after 4 o'clock in the afternoon, an assassin fired two bullets into the chest and ample belly of William McKinley, the 25th president of the United States. The crime took place at the Hall of Music at the Pan-American Exhibition in Buffalo; in the background a Bach sonata was being played. McKinley, then at the height of his popularity, had spent the day sightseeing at the Falls at Niagara. Against the misgivings of his advisers, he insisted on returning to the exhibition to be glimpsed and greeted by thousands who had heard the greatest speech of his presidency the day before.

This year's first award for public irresponsibility goes to three novice councilmen in Baltimore County, Donald Mason, Douglas Riley and William Howard. At a mass rally at Dundalk High School, they called for county homeowners to paralyze the property tax process by appealing every reassessment. "Jam the system," urged the 28-year-old Mr. Howard.Mistrust of government is one thing. It is quite another thing for three elected officials to incite taxpayers to mindless actions that serve no one's best interest -- especially when the 24 panels that hear property tax assessment appeals are already so overwhelmed that they have stopped scheduling cases in many counties.
