Selling real estate would be much easier if potential clients came to the office wearing identification tags and armed with a list of personality traits. It's not all that easy. Every buyer is different, and often what they believe - their value system - is determined by their age. That's not to say that everyone over 70 is a conformist who believes that personal problems should be kept to oneself, or that everyone under 25 is confident, hard-working, and strives for perfection.

Since my column deals with ethical and moral principles of behavior, I have basically taken upon myself the job of preaching, teaching and nagging about values. Taking clear positions on right and wrong and promoting virtues has made me a hero to some and a serious annoyance to others. While I'd rather go on and on about the letters I receive which liken me to Jiminy Cricket (or even better!), I find it more important to talk about the points of view of my detractors. The name-calling covers a lot of ground: I'm "mean," "psycho," "stupid," "ignorant," "mentally ill," "cruel," "disgusting," "dangerous," "uninformed," "despicable" and other things too vulgar to print.

They say she is too ambitious, a sort of Lady Macbeth without her murderous drive. They say she is the real power behind President Clinton and lacks only the title. They even ridicule her use of her maiden name, "Rodham. " This alleged sinister figure will one day be recorded as the best First Lady since Eleanor Roosevelt. That's my prediction. So what's wrong with ambition? Webster defines it as "a desire to achieve a particular goal. " And what is the goal Hillary Rodham Clinton has set for herself?

IF IT'S TUESDAY IT MUST BE . . . The Federal Trade Commission deals almost entirely with domestic regulation issues, such as unfair competition or monopolistic practices, yet in the past two years its chairman, Daniel Oliver, a conservative Republican, has spent 95 days traveling abroad. He has visited Australia, New Zealand, Belgium and Italy. He has been to Nassau, Geneva, Berlin, Tokyo and that hot-bed of antitrust activity, Acapulco. He has also managed three trips to London and five to Paris.

The modern American protest movement is practically invisible in the mass media. Yet, it exists. It has a voice, its voice is growing, and it is deeply rooted in the protest movements of the '60s and '70s. The war cry of the '60s was, "Give Peace a Chance," and the message was "Love is all you need. " These were the seed ideas of a moral vision: to heal society's rupture into rich and poor, war-makers and warred-upon, and to rectify the political and civil injustice of America's economics apartheid.

I won't say college athletics haven't had a very good year, but I'll say this: If college sport were a stockbroker, it would be Ivan Boesky. If it were an airplane, it would be the B-1. If it were a country, it would be Armenia. Consider the recent evidence: Jackie Sherrill, football coach at Texas A&M, was forced to resign in the face of charges that he had paid hush money to a player to persuade him not to testify in a National Collegiate Athletic Association investigation of recruiting violations at the school.

Mirror, mirror on the wall: Who is the greatest, smartest, most superior of them all? No, Master John, it's not you. What do you mean? Who else could possess all those superlatives and qualities? Stephanie Franklin-Suber. Who? Mayor Street's chief of staff. The good ol' boys will take care of her. Breeding Stage: Who is this person and who does she think she is? She's a black female, very aggressive, probably got the position through affirmative action. Who does she think she is - a white man?

Mercy for son who snatched life of elderly victim? I was outraged at Andrea Rivers' suggestion (letter Oct. 21) that her wonderful purse-snatching son should be given a less harsh sentence! As a victim of a purse snatching myself, I can tell you it was traumatic and shocking. I was only 23 and not an "elder," as her son's victim apparently was. Obviously, Rivers' value system and lack of accountability allows her to view her poor son as the victim, instead of the true victim - a value system apparently that led to this "insignificant crime," resulting in a death of another human.

Lillian Marie "Mom" Satterthwhite-Dukes, who prepared her children for an environment that surpassed the one they grew up in, died Jan 5. She was 66 and had lived in North Philadelphia. Mom was a single parent who raised five kids. Some might find that a burden. Mom saw it as an opportunity to tailor the roles of mother and father to just what she wanted them to be. She also knew what she wanted her children to be and it all came to pass. Kevin Dukes, one of her sons, stands in awe of his mother, as do the other kids.

When George Bush went back to Houston this year, he dragged the last remnants of the 1980s away with him like an old raccoon coat. In the months that followed, upscale fashion designer Calvin Klein counseled, "It's the '90s. You don't want to look rich. " Mercedes-Benz came out with a downscale model. The producer of the Miss America pageant said he tried to make the 1993 edition more substantive and less giddy - why else? - "to bring it into the '90s. " Three years late and a lot of dollars short, 1993 is the year the '90s arrived for real.

Nutter administration officials said Wednesday that they would seek an additional $90 million in property taxes in 2012-13 - but that it's not a tax hike. The new revenue would be collected as the city switches to a system that values property based on the actual market price for tax purposes. That change also would preserve tax hikes applied in each of the last two years, all of which had been billed as temporary. Mayor Nutter, who will lay out details of the city's Actual Value Initiative in his budget address Thursday to City Council, argues that the switch to actual value merely will take into account the rise in overall property values since 2004, the last time any significant reassessment was done.

Probing questions? Unwelcome questions? Sure, newspaper and broadcast reporters ask them all the time. How about abrasive or downright goofy inquiries? It happens. It's a rare American journalist, though, who gets to ask a question or report news found to be illegal. As of the other week, in effect, The Inquirer staff has four. That's no cause for celebration. But Inquirer readers - indeed, citizens across this region - are better served because of what the four did. The reporters - Emilie Lounsberry, Dwight Ott, George Anastasia and Joseph Gambardello - tested the limits of legitimate inquiry into the proceedings of the criminal justice system.
