That was Jesse James buried face down in Jesse James' grave in Kearney, Mo. No doubt about it. He was 34 years old when he died from a single bullet to the head April 3, 1882. At HTC the time, James had tobacco-stained teeth, long hair dyed darker that its natural chestnut (possibly in an attempt at disguise), a .36-caliber bullet lodged in his rib cage (probably fired from a Union officer's Navy Colt at the end of the Civil War)and, while ole Jess might have been addicted to painkillers, he probably didn't do dope for at least three months prior to his death.

From out of the darkened sky of a December evening came the approach of an airplane. It was circling precariously over the rooftops of nearby houses, only 200 feet off the ground, with red and green position lights aglow and presenting the appearance of a mysterious airborne invader. Gradually, it turned in a southeasterly direction toward nearby Memorial Stadium.Could this be some imagined flight of fancy? Were our senses giving way to hallucination? Or realistically, was the plane in trouble, unable to gain altitude, out of fuel, perhaps, and desperately in need of finding space for an emergency landing?

As his students grapple for the first time with the ambiguities of Christian ethics, Morgan State University professor Richard McKinney sits, hands folded, a study of thoughtful repose. How can the Bible be the inspired word of God when it contradicts itself? one student asks."You'll come across a lot of contradictions in the Bible," McKinney tells the class. "We need to read the Bible in terms of its culture and a span of several thousand years. ... I think the people who wrote it were inspired, but they wrote from the viewpoint of their experience, their perspective, their place in time.

MANY AMERICANS have difficulty accepting Yasser Arafat, president of the Palestinian Authority, as a member of civil society, much less an honored guest at the White House. This is the rogue terrorist who packed a gun at the United Nations, the world revolutionary and would-be destroyer of Israel. But there he was, Wednesday, neatly groomed beneath his trademark headscarf, polite and smiling, greeted by President Clinton with the most decorous courtesy.And Mr. Clinton was right. Americans, Israelis and others had been demanding for years that the Palestine Liberation Organization eliminate calls for Israel's destruction from its charter.

Duane Thigpen, local artist, teacher and curator, has organized two shows of African-American artists that've opened the last three months.In October, Maryland Art Place was the site of "Original Aspects of Humanity," featuring 10 artists. Now he has brought us "Free to Be: African-American Artists in a Post Modern Era," an exhibit of seven artists being shown in three Howard County locations.Granted, you can show more works in three locations than in one. But given that it's not likely many people will make the effort to get to all three (and it is an effort; they are several miles apart)

Some of the prettiest trees in Christmas shops this season are labeled Victorian. Decorated with lacy, beribboned confections in pastel colors, they are lovely to look at and reminiscent of holidays past. But such ornaments would never have appeared on a Victorian Christmas tree."They have a feminine, boudoir look," says Carolyn Flaherty, editor of Victorian Homes magazine. "Very romantic. But the Victorians were dignified. They never would have had them in their parlors."It's easy enough, though, to duplicate how the Victorians actually decorated -- without spending a lot of money.
