WORDS are cheap. They spill out of most of us as readily as water flows from a tap. The value of an individual word is almost nil. The value a word takes on is purely the result of the artfulness of its placement alongside other words.In this scheme of reckoning, poetry is inherently more valuable than prose, because good prose is easy to write and good poetry isn't. The marketplace doesn't recognize this scale of value. This is why Paul Peroutka, whose words may be among the most valuable on paper today, rarely makes a dime from what he writes.

Much of what you need to know about Michael A. Peroutka's run for president you can see in a glance around his living room. Take the stack of things on his coffee table. It consists of campaign notes stuffed into a manila folder, a copy of former White House counterterrorism adviser Richard Clarke's book Against All Enemies, and a Bible. On the bookcase, there's a bust of Patrick Henry, the revolutionary and anti-federalist Virginian who feared the government was too centralized. A painting of Robert E. Lee hangs above tiny Confederate flags on the mantle.

Michael Anthony Peroutka and David Whitney, who are vying for the same seat on the Anne Arundel County Council, are members of the League of the South, an organization whose stated goal is the secession of Southern states. Peroutka also believes elected officials should return to a "Biblical worldview" of the founding fathers, and Whitney preaches at his Pasadena church that God is essential in government and that current political leaders are "wicked and corrupt. " Such views and affiliations have landed Peroutka and Whitney on a list of "extremist candidates" compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center, an Alabama-based nonprofit that tracks hate groups.

I have read many articles about Michael Peroutka, the Anne Arundel County Council candidate for District 5 ( "Hogan, GOP concerned about Arundel candidate's ties to secessionist group," July 25). These articles are mostly made up of name-calling, rumors and other allegations without any evidence or sources other than the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is a tainted source at best. Where are the articles that actually include facts? Where are the supposed exposes on the other candidates?
