No one foresaw the house at the corner of 12th and Clay streets in Richmond, Va., becoming the White House of the Confederacy, least of all its owner, Lewis Crenshaw. But when Crenshaw transformed his 1818 neo-classical mansion into a Victorian-style home with a "French flavor," he unwittingly created a setting worthy of its future role.Crenshaw installed large, heavy pieces of Victorian furniture with dark, wood frames upholstered in somber shades. Then he added individual furnishings and appointments with decorative motifs representing Rococo Revival.

Myths die hard, because credulous men desperately need mythology to make sense of events that reason cannot explain.And nowhere does romantic mythology remain more obstinately embedded than in the Old Confederacy, where, as the late C. Vann Woodward used to impishly say, "a dedicated priesthood jealously guards its special brand of Shintoism -- the worship of ancestors." Is it any wonder that in such a pervasive reverential atmosphere, battles still rage across the South over and under the Confederate flag?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - For 30 minutes last night, the Blast looked invincible. But instead of being homewreckers, the Blast just became another victim in Kansas City. The six-point lead the Blast built didn't last. The Comets' dominance at home, though, continued as they improved to a perfect 12-0 on their grounds by rallying past the visitors, 16-12, in front of 3,566 at Kemper Arena. The Blast, 13-15 and loser of three in a row, cut the Comets' lead to one point when newly acquired defender Iain Fraser scored at 6 minutes 55 seconds of the fourth quarter.
