Incumbency has never reared its ugly head more forcefully than in your March 7 story about Bob Dornan ("Dornan's Rival Feels Wrath of an Incumbent").

When seven-term Congressman Bob Dornan goes nuts because an unknown candidate who's never run for office decides to challenge him in the Republican primary, there's got to be a reason. Could it be that Dornan, who's always his most amusing when he's his most excitable, is getting downright edgy?
