It would appear that, in Novak's view, anyone who criticizes Wall Street for its venal, greedy, shortsightedness is making an irresponsible attack on the entire capitalist system. In point of fact, the resentment he so abhors has nothing to do with envy. It is both our right and responsibility to subject the power structures of this nation, whether they be political or economic, to harsh and unrelenting criticism when they fail either in competence or loyalty to the nation and its people.

JERUSALEM - The crowd that gathered at the recent grand opening of Cinema City hadn't come for the movies. They were there in droves to protest a government regulation that keeps the 19-screen cineplex closed each week from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. "Jerusalem, wake up!" the protesters chanted as security guards blocked them from entering the lobby. "Nonreligious people are equal too!" The demonstration was the latest skirmish in Jerusalem's long-running "Sabbath wars," which for decades have pitted the city's secular Jewish population against its ultra-Orthodox community over whether shops, theaters and other public spaces can remain open on the Jewish day of rest.

In response to "Living Under 'a Veil of Denial,' " by Alfee Enciso, Voices, Dec. 28: Alfee Enciso's diatribe about racism, especially about the images in advertising that oppress him, raises some interesting questions. Japanese advertising, in Japan, is full of blonds, and department store mannequins that are not Caucasian are rare to nonexistent. Clearly the image of success in Japan, to a great extent, has been "Eurocentric." Has this resulted in Japan being left behind in poverty, ignorance, oppression and lack of self-worth?

GAZA CITY - Like many Palestinians, Marwan Hissi has closely followed reports of peace negotiations between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. An unemployed father of five living in a refugee community in the Gaza Strip, Hissi says he has a question for American negotiators leading the talks: "Where's Hamas?" The Islamic militant movement, which seized control of Gaza in 2007, has been excluded from the process as U.S. officials work out a preliminary agreement on key issues in the long-running Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

AVONDALE, Ariz. — The backlash among NASCAR's faithful resurfaced almost instantly. No sooner had Jimmie Johnson won the race at Martinsville, Va., two weeks ago, and taken the points lead in the Sprint Cup Series than the outcry began that this was, somehow, bad news. Johnson is trying to win his sixth Cup championship — an achievement only two other drivers have accomplished — in the last seven years. And that had a good many NASCAR watchers grumbling in the blogosphere, social media circles and on Internet message boards.

When people on the left get nasty, they reduce the motives of conservatives to greed. That's why Ivan Boesky is for the left the best weapon since Joe McCarthy. Boesky praised greed in front of a prestigious business school. Pure delight for leftists! A man from Wall Street said exactly what the left has said for 140 years! The left delights in shouting "greed!" because greed is the single vice for which citizens have the most contempt.

MEXICO CITY - Cuba announced Tuesday that it would move toward ending a two-tier national currency system widely criticized for creating a privileged class with access to a special peso. The notice, published in Granma, the official Communist Party newspaper, was not unexpected: President Raul Castro had announced his support for such a plan in July. But the announcement Tuesday was short on details about how the country's leadership plans to unify the regular peso, which is worth pennies on the U.S. dollar, and the "convertible" peso, or CUC, which is pegged to the dollar.

It's more than a little ironic that the same Arizona Legislature that spearheaded a ruthless, racially charged campaign against illegal immigrants also banned K-12 ethnic studies classes on the grounds that they promote hatred and division. Who knew Arizona's Republican majority, as expert as it is at hyperbole and invective, was so committed to fostering healthy race relations in the Grand Canyon State? Last month, after a court fight against the ban, the governing board of the Tucson Unified School District pulled the plug on its Mexican American studies program, which teachers say was designed to help middle school and high school students navigate in a complex, multiethnic world.

So Oral Roberts "feels resentment" that his family has realized "only one-tenth of 1%" of the $1 billion that he has supposedly raised in the name of Christ. In my calculations, that is $1 million. I always thought that people of his ilk did what they do out of love of God and for their fellow man. I wonder how much "resentment" Mother Teresa feels? NORM TAPPIN Redondo Beach

Irma Rodriguez resented having to translate for her parents as a child, and has turned that resentment into a federal case. This is my resentment: For years, foreign-speaking citizens have gone to their families and friends to have their English ballots translated. Why can't Rodriguez's parents and others use this system? When there are so many other pressing financial shortfalls, why do we have to pay for something people should be doing for themselves? LORI WEISS Los Angeles

Aaron Kushner, the CEO of Freedom Communications, the owner of the Orange County Register, has registered his objection to our post Tuesday describing the company's plans to take out life insurance policies on its employees to help fund the company's pension plan as "ghoulish. " We observed that the scheme was introduced a few days after Freedom laid off dozens of employees at the Register and the Riverside Press-Enterprise. In a memo to employees reprinted on Jim Romenesko's media news blog, Kushner explained that the life insurance program demonstrates that "w e care about you, your spouses and your families.

SAN DIEGO - Characters in drama don't have to be likable, as Shakespeare, Ibsen and Eugene O'Neill keep reminding us. But we ought to care about their fates. They should arouse our concern even if we might politely turn down a dinner invitation from them. The three characters in Samuel D. Hunter's "The Few," which is having its world premiere at the Old Globe's Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre under Davis McCallum's sensitive direction, aren't going to win any popularity contests.

On a sunny September day, Christina Ayres lay on the sand near the Huntington Beach Pier, tanning in a pink bikini, and ticked off the things that identify a 909er. Bad clothing - " 'Jersey Shore' style," the 29-year-old explained. And meth addicts. "That's what you hear on the news. " Over on Main Street, Ryan Kaupang, 21, had a more specific description: "White kids that dress like bros," he said, "bros" meaning people who wear cut-off jerseys and motocross gear and "try to act like tough guys.

Montana's Supreme Court issued a ruling Friday to block a district judge's attempt to modify a previously imposed month-long prison sentence for a teacher convicted of raping a student. The Supreme Court decided that Montana District Judge G. Todd Baugh cannot move forward with a hearing that had been scheduled for Friday at 1:30 p.m. local time to void the 31-day prison sentence that he imposed last week on Stacey Rambold. The court's ruling came less than an hour before the hearing in Billings was to start.

Re "Rand Paul's paleo pal," Opinion, July 16 According to Jonah Goldberg, Jack Hunter - the aide to Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) who toasts John Wilkes Booth on his birthday - is just a throwback to the "paleolibertarian" movement, a pragmatic attempt to bolster support for libertarianism through kinship with white supremacists and neoconfederates. As Goldberg frames it, Hunter represents an old mistake, an attempt to connect two movements that really have nothing in common. In other words, now that the most racist examples of white resentment have become too embarrassing, conservatives want to pretend they were never a meaningful part of their movement.

Although it was drowned out by the mayor's race, Los Angeles quietly marked a historic moment this month: On May 15, after 12 years of policing the city under the eye of a federal judge, the Los Angeles Police Department at last was allowed to return to managing itself. That marks the end of a contentious yet intensely productive era, and it is a signal triumph for the man most responsible, Gerald Chaleff, who negotiated the consent decree in 2001, who oversaw its implementation and who witnessed its expiration.

BEIJING - Exports of elegant Swiss watches to China have plunged. Sales of Mercedes-Benz and other premium sedans are slowing. And high-end restaurants, coming off their worst Chinese New Year festival in years, are starting to change their menus to lure ordinary families. At a Montblanc shop in downtown Beijing, sales clerks recall the days when they rang up as many as 10 of the top-selling fountain pens every day. And never mind the $1,400 price tag: The platinum-plated pen capped with a half-carat diamond was a particular favorite.
