Whatever you thought of the original "Dallas"  on CBS, you have to admit it spoke to its times like few other pop culture artifacts of the 1980s. In the Reagan era with its celebration of McMansions, corporations and de-regulated savings & loan presidents who got rich by stealing from their elderly clients, why wouldn't J.R. Ewing become the most popular character in prime time drama? Was any character more an embodiment of 1980's values? But why in the world would anyone think it was a good idea to revisit that turf again in 2012, simply repeating the same conflicts, themes and values almost note for note as they were first sounded some 34 years ago?

Clifton Mansion still towers over Baltimore, but decades of neglect are eroding its underpinnings. Wood is rotting on the signature porches of the 19th-century building. Water stains the walls of its elegant salon. Job-training students wear gloves and hats in winter to ward off cold from a wall of aging windows. Plaster is crumbling, floors need refinishing and research must be done to preserve murals, stencils and paintings. The Italianate stucco home, Johns Hopkins' summer estate in what is now Clifton Park in Northeast Baltimore, is about to undergo a $7 million renovation to restore those gracefully arched porches and floor-to-ceiling windows.

When the street sign said Boulton, I knew I was near the right address. Soon another familiar street name popped up — Atwood — and I was squarely in Bel Air's Howard Park, a subdivision created out of the orchards surrounding a noteworthy Baltimorean's summer home. Its formal name is Liriodendron, and it is a Harford County treasure. It was built by one of the Johns Hopkins Hospital's fabled "Big Four," Dr. Howard Atwood Kelly. Kelly spent most of the year at 1406 Eutaw Place in Baltimore, where he also had a private clinic in an adjoining building.

Once upon a time, the New York Times, of all publications, declared Blaine R. Young's political career over. It was more than a decade ago, Frederick washing its hands over and over after an escort service scandal and the young alderman's name had been one of those discovered in the madam's black book. Wouldn't that prognosticator be surprised to hear that less than a decade later not only is Young back in politics, he's pondering a run to be Maryland's next governor. It was back in 2001 when Young's name was one of those uncovered in the so-called black book of Madam Angelika Potter's Corporate Affair escort service, a sex scandal that provided Frederick and the rest of the state with salacious gossip for much of the early 2000s.

Temperatures climbed into the 50s and gentle winds buffeted those who had gathered outside Mount Clare Mansion to celebrate its reopening and affiliation with the B&O Railroad Museum. While bystanders waited for the official ribbon-cutting ceremonies to begin last week, they reveled in the spectacular view of Baltimore from atop the gently sloping hill where Mount Clare, built in 1760, stands overlooking Southwest Baltimore's Carroll Park. The Monumental City Fife and Drum Corps, dressed in colorful period costumes and wearing tricorn hats, serenaded those waiting with a selection of peppy 18th- and 19th-century airs.

The Mount Vernon house spent decades as one of several 19th-century millionaires' mansions. But in the last 25 years, the Patrick Allison House has found another mission. Once a church office, it is now a sanctuary for the homeless where a neighboring congregation once served breakfasts. Its role changed to fit a need, and its rooms are now a year-round residence. The spacious bedrooms house homeless men who have given up drugs and alcohol and are making their way into the workforce, often after release from prison or jail.
