"Others may become accustomed to these times ... but I ... a torn sea. I in the midst of the storm, I the mirror of the outside, as wild and chaotic as the world." -- GEORG HEYM They were the young rebels of 1910, "a troupe of prodigal sons on the run," howling in their flight from a world in which nothing seemed right any more. With their brushes and paint tubes and wild, pounding words, they set out against the paralyzing order of a German Empire which, on the surface, was functioning triumphantly well.

In Real Estate Q&A (July 23) Robert J. Bruss states that "In most states, attorneys can charge statutory fees of 6% to 22% of" probate estates. I don't know to which state Bruss was referring, but it certainly could not be California, where statutory fees range from 4% of the first $15,000 to 1% over $1 million.

I am both disappointed and disturbed by The Times' anti-Israel obsession. It was exemplified by your editorial "Dangerous Deception" (July 9). With everything horrendous going on in the world, you devoted an editorial to an alleged incident regarding the arrest of a 17-year-old Arab boy. Where were your photographs and editorials when the Russians shot 35 Armenians to death in a single day? Or when the Iraqis were using chemical warfare against the Iranians?
