Like every other columnist who belongs to the godless liberal media, I get my share of mail.Much of this mail is from savvy, well-adjusted readers who recognize the cutting-edge humor regularly displayed in this space.But some of the mail is from out-and-out wackos, a wacko in this case being anyone who disagrees with what I write.An example of the sort of letter a columnist enjoys receiving is this:"Dear Sir,"Just a quick note to tell you how much your column means to me and the missus."We went through a rough stretch recently when my brother Clint backed his Chevy Blazer over my leg and Clara lost her job at the Hair Cuttery and Missy (that's our cat)

I am deeply troubled by the hate mail from Connie DeJuliis that comes to my home every day. For years, Sen. Jim Brochin has come to the yearly neighborhood meetings in my community to tell about his accomplishments after each legislative session, and he has been on the side of the community. I have not always agreed with him, but I know that he is at least honest and willing to engage in a dialogue with others. As Mr. Brochin told The Sun last month, "my job isn't to do what Martin O'Malley tells me to do. My job isn't to do what Kevin Kamenetz tells me to. My job is to do what my constituents want me to do" ( "Brochin, DeJuliis square off in redrawn north county district," May 17)

OTHER VOICES receives a good deal of mail from state prisoners, many of whose essays and poetry we've published over the years. Only recently has this postmark appeared in addition to the regular postmark of the U.S. Postal Service.Greg Shipley, prison spokesman, said there are two reasons for the new stamp. One is that courts have attempted to expedite mail delivery between prisoners and their lawyers. The stamp is required on letters tio attorneys, Shiplkey said, but instead of attempting to segregate such mail, officials decided to stamp all mail.

THINK OF THIS as a love story. It's about a Harford County woman's tender muted feelings for her brother, and how they finally found a voice and became a love call to a thousand other brothers who went to Vietnam and never came back. But now, so many years later, their faces emerge from the dark. Charlie Walsh was 19 when he was cut down in March 1968. It was four months after he arrived in Vietnam. On patrol, he and a few Marine buddies took sniper fire and called in friendly mortar. But the mortar fell short and Charlie took a blast that nearly cut him in half.

BOCA RATON, Fla.- As FBI investigators struggle to figure out who would deliver deadly anthrax spores into the headquarters of the country's largest tabloid publisher, some employees think a better question might be: Who wouldn't? "In some ways, I'm surprised somebody didn't blow up the building a long time ago," says Barry Dutter, a writer for the Weekly World News, part of America Media Inc., the company under investigation. "Certainly our papers have made a lot of enemies over the years."

It was only death in the end that finally managed to silence the voice and still the pen of Jack L. Levin, a Baltimorean who for 60 years vigorously fought against hateful prejudice while championing the cause of civil libertarianism. Levin, 88, also a gifted advertising executive, died of renal failure last week at Sinai Hospital. He cut his teeth organizing street protests against the 1936 visit of the light German cruiser Emden, carrying 600 Nazi naval trainees and flying the swastika when it docked at Recreation Pier in Fells Point.

MAYO has a problem. Some community residents have sewn race into a discussion where it doesn't belong. The fruits of their labor came last week in a racially tinged death threat sent to Anne Arundel Schools Superintendent Carol S. Parham. The threatening letter objected to Dr. Parham's plan to temporarily transfer white children from Mayo Elementary School to an empty wing of majority-black Annapolis Middle while a new building is built for Mayo. The letter to Dr. Parham, who is African-American, was laced with profanity and racial epithets.

One of my favorite routines of the week as the writer of this column has been reading the inevitable hate mail from Alert Readers that almost any opinion I expressed would generate.Sometimes it was just one unsigned letter in a scrawl that made me think of "Night of the Living Dead." Sometimes it was a gusher of bloody wrath.This will be my last Observer column. I will miss the weeklroutine of reading the hate mail and publishing those letters that wouldn't scare young children or make my life insurance agent edgy.
