Ask residents of Davis, W.Va., about their town's past and they use words like lawless, boisterous and booming.Davis hit its peak around the turn of the century when the combined fortunes of lumbering and coal mining brought more than 3,000 residents and 80 businesses -- including hotels, banks and an opera house -- to the edge of the Canaan Valley. Nearly 200 miles of railroad track ran deep into the forests for hauling lumber into the Davis mills, according to town lore. Prosperity brought electricity to the main street as early as 1893.

I guess it makes some sense. If they can bring back '70s radio, they can bring back that inglorious '70s song-and dance team -- Dick Nixon and Ted Agnew.But this ain't no disco. This ain't no foolin' around.This is Spiro T. with a bust in the Capitol, alongside 42 other vice presidents, many of whom were not actually crooks, at least not officially.This is Tricky Dick with his face on a 32-cent stamp. (I voted for the impeached-Nixon stamp, by the way.)Am I missing something? As a nation, we don't seem to believe in rehabilitation anymore.

After more than a year of deliberations, city officials have decided to place a bust of the late Frank Zappa at the Southeast Anchor Library in Highlandtown. The bust, which sits atop a tall column, is a gift from a Zappa fan club in Lithuania. It will be erected at Eastern Avenue and South Conkling Street sometime next year, said Anne Perkins, chairwoman of the Public Art Commission. "We think this is a great place for it - a terrific neighborhood" Perkins said. "I think it will be the focal point for a lot of really fun festivals."

FREDERICK -- A bronze bust of Roger Brooke Taney stares sternly ahead, as if he were watching the two cherubs frolicking in the fountain in front of City Hall. Author of the inflammatory Dred Scott decision affirming slavery, Taney has been immortalized here for 75 years, largely ignored by passers-by. But as Frederick has grown and become more diverse, a small band of residents is looking to move, or remove, this tribute to the Supreme Court chief justice who once resided in the city, saying his racism can no longer be condoned - even in the context of history.

Agnew is finally getting some respect.The former vice president will have his marble likeness sculpted in the coming months and placed among those of his predecessors and successors in the Capitol.Mr. Agnew, bypassed over the years for the official bust, was contacted early last month by George M. White, the architect of the Capitol, who will oversee the project, which is expected to take six months and cost between $35,000 and $50,000, said William F. Raines Jr., a spokesman for the architect.

The bust, which gleams with a bronze-like patina, depicts a man of noble bearing and aristocratic mien whose intense, inward-looking gaze hints at long experience of the world and spiritual depth. Yet, the artwork doesn't depict a head of state or powerful prince. Instead, it portrays a 19th-century African-American, Bishop Benjamin Tucker Tanner, and it was sculpted in plaster with loving care by his artist son, Henry Ossawa Tanner. Henry Tanner was one of the few 19th-century African-Americans to win international recognition as an artist, and today he is best known for his lyrical depictions of ordinary black people who appear in portraits and genre scenes painted early in his career.

Signing on to work at a start-up company is a lot like buying shares in a business with no track record. It can turn out to be a boon, but it's much more likely to be a financial bust.One of my fondest work experiences is the year that I spent on staff at a brand-new magazine. Never before -- or since -- have I been surrounded by so many talented, dynamic co-workers pulling together for a common goal. The publication has since folded, but the ambitious projects we did there helped most of us move on to better jobs.
