Well, that pretty much settles it. My fellow Americans, I have heard and understood the loud and unequivocal message you sent with this year's election: Liberty is for losers. True, we have not been a free people in some time. It's been a long and bumpy road to serfdom - 100 years to be precise, starting in 1913, when government gathered for itself the power to levy a tax on income in direct opposition with the taxation power as the Founders envisioned it. The Founders, after all, understood a thing to two about the dangers of taxation, how necessary expenditures for the public good can all-too-easily become inevitable and bottomless troughs engorging an ever-expanding and ever-ravenous bureaucracy.

Two people faced life-threatening injuries after their car crashed into a tree in Davidsonville Friday night. Firefighters took more than 15 minutes to free a man and woman who appeared to be in their 20s from the wreckage, Fire Department spokesman Division Chief Michael Cox said. The accident happened on Patuxent River Road south of Central Avenue just after 10 p.m., Cox said. The pair were taken by separate helicopters to regional trauma centers.

Washington. -- The bumper sticker on my neighbor's car has silently taunted me for the past two years: ''Bush Lost, Get Over It.''Now Democrats are beginning to feel the exasperation that goes with losing -- and they are venting their frustration through a sympathetic media. Much of their exasperation is directed at one man, the incoming Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich of Georgia.The temptation for Republicans, especially those in the House who have wandered in the political wilderness for 40 years, will be to intensify their hatred and distrust of the media, which have rarely given them or their arguments respect.

WASHINGTON - The battle lines are drawn in the war of ideas as Iraqi citizens vote today in their first free national election. When he took the oath of office for the second time Jan. 20, President Bush used the moment to make an unapologetic tribute to freedom and to reaffirm the principles that undergird Western liberalism: liberty, the individual and self-government. The policy of the United States, the president proclaimed in his inaugural address, is to support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture.

ON JULY 24, 1863, three weeks after the Battle of Gettysburg, Union officers freed the inmates of a slave trader's jail on Pratt Street near the Baltimore harbor. They found a grisly scene."In this place I found 26 men, 1 boy, 29 women and 3 infants," Col. William Birney of the U.S. Colored Troops wrote to his commanding officer. "Sixteen of the men were shackled and one had his legs chained together by ingeniously contrived locks connected by chains suspended to his waist."The slaves were confined in sweltering cells or in the bricked-in yard of "Cam- liu's slave-pen," where "no tree or shrub grows" and "the mid-day sun pours down its scorching rays," Birney wrote.

PEOPLE who have seen producer Steven Spielberg's gripping film "Amistad," about an infamous slave-ship mutiny, know that the U.S. Supreme Court released the African captives in 1841 even though they had been charged with murder.Many people also know that the Supreme Court in 1857 denied freedom to Dred Scott, although he had lived for four years in areas of the United States where slavery was prohibited.Some wonder how the Supreme Court, acting under the same Constitution, could produce such apparently contradictory decisions.

Granite pillars stand for the 56 states and territories of the United States at midcentury. Arches represent the Atlantic and Pacific theaters of World War II. Gold stars mark the 400,000 American lives lost. These are a few of the elements that make the National World War II Memorial a sweeping exercise in architectural symbolism, a place where every piece of the composition is imbued with meaning. But the most powerful symbolism is rooted in the way the memorial has been placed on the National Mall in Washington, occupying a 7.4-acre tract halfway between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument.

People don't go on vacation as much these days. Instead they "travel."Many women, when asked what they do with their leisure time, will say without a blink that they clean, do laundry, run errands.If someone stops to smell the roses during the day, you can bet it was scheduled last week and noted in an appointment book along with the meeting that follows it."Traditionally, we call the part of the day that isn't work time or sleep time, 'free time' or 'leisure time.' But the 'shoulds' -- 'I should do this, I should do that' -- are creeping into our leisure.
