Anti AntisEditor: Sincere thanks for your front-page spread on our new wave of anti warriors. It was just the shot in the arm my wavering support of our position in the Persian Gulf needed.Dave Reich.Fallston.Carl BacharachEditor: Carl Bacharach died a few weeks ago. His absence seems unreal. He was bright, warm, colorful and caring, rare and welcome qualities in a judge.An early anecdote of him is that of the legislator on the floor of the House of Delegates years ago, who pretended to have a small secret radio with which he could get voting instructions from his friend, Jack Pollack.

JAMES ROUSE had a dream that one day all people, despite their socioeconomic status, would convene at the community mailbox. His dream has been built into one of the nation's most famous planned communities, Columbia. But Rouse's rosy vision is covered in the thorns of a society where poverty equals immorality, where subsidized housing is disdained by the middle class who dominate the area. Somewhere in the midst of Rouse's dream, fear has enveloped our small town. It is this fear that drives civilians to move outward, away from what they must regard as hateful scenes of the less fortunate, which gives Columbia the characteristics of a miniature city.

The Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre folks can hardly miss with their August show selection based on the Billy Wilder-directed 1960 Oscar-winning film The Apartment, which became a 1968 musical, Promises, Promises. The musical was crafted by one of America's favorite and most prolific playwrights, Neil Simon and boasted a musical score by Burt Bacharach, the songwriter whose music all but identifies the 1960s. Like the film, Promises, Promises traces the rise of mild-mannered young accountant C. C. "Chuck" Baxter, who moves up the corporate ladder by lending his well-located midtown Manhattan apartment to middle-aged executives for round-the-clock trysts with young office assistants.

Based on his accomplishments -- a Breeders' Cup victory, a Champagne win, an Eclipse Award -- Timber Country should be a strong winter-book favorite for the Kentucky Derby.
