Like most NFL defensive tackles, Haloti Ngata has an insatiable appetite. The 6-foot-4, 345-pound Ravens lineman loves to devour Italian food (except during the season when he tries to keep healthy), anything with curry and his latest favorite - Maryland steamed crabs. At Glen Burnie's Seaside Restaurant, Ngata will go through a dozen of the largest crabs without breaking a sweat. If you try to interrupt him, the affable Ngata has been known to strike a glare that would make Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson shudder, showing he has become a true Baltimore guy. "When he's eating crabs, you don't really get many words out of him," said his wife of two years, Christina.

HERE is something that the psychologists have so far neglected: the love of ugliness for its own sake, the lust to make the world intolerable. Its habitat is the United States. Out of the melting pot emerges a race which hates beauty as it hates truth. The etiology of this madness deserves a great deal more study than it has got. There must be causes behind it; it arises and flourishes in obedience to biological laws and not as a mere act of God. What, precisely, are the terms of those laws?

Arno Breker, 90, a sculptor and portrait painter whose reputation was tainted by his work for the Nazis, died Wednesday in Dusseldorf, Germany. After early experiments with abstraction, he turned to portraiture in the 1920s, when he was living in Paris. In 1938, he was named a professor at the Academy of Art in Berlin. He earned commissions from the Nazis to beautify the capital of the Third Reich and worked closely with Albert Speer, the architect convicted as a war criminal. After the war, when museums refused to exhibit his works, he maintained that he helped such friends as Pablo Picasso and Jean Cocteau by intervening with Nazi officials and saving them from arrest.
