On the X-ray image they printed out for me, trouble is a pink triangular speck, labeled LAD. The pink spot represents a calcium buildup - hardened plaque. And the LAD tag means the plaque lies in my "left anterior descending" coronary artery - the one cardiologists call "the widow maker." A blockage in the LAD tends to kill you. No one has said definitively that's what killed NBC newsman Tim Russert last week at the age of 58. But it wouldn't be a bad bet. Russert died after a heart attack in his Washington office.

The federal government has banned cigarette smoking on airplanes and in office buildings. Now comes the next stop on the smoke-free frontier: postage stamps.The U.S. Postal Service will unveil a new stamp on Feb. 18 celebrating Jackson Pollock's contribution to Abstract Expressionism. The stamp, only the second to commemorate an American artist, is based on a 1949 Life magazine photograph showing the denim-clad artist, a chain smoker, in his studio pouring paint onto canvas, a cigarette hanging precariously from his mouth.

If there is one figure who stands at the center of the American art of this century, it is surely Jackson Pollock."I think he is seen as a . . . hinge figure between earlier modernism and the postwar world," says Kirk Varnedoe, chief curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. "He was a sort of Janus figure, a summation of a certain direction and a source from which a lot of important innovations in art have flowed."Those who want insights into Pollock can hear one of America's leading authorities on modern art at the Baltimore Museum of Art Sunday at 3 p.m. when Mr. Varnedoe delivers the annual Israel Rosen Memorial Lecture, commemorating the late Baltimore collector.

The Anne Arundel County Council has hired Arnold resident Robert M. Pollock, a longtime senior assistant county attorney, as legislative counsel to draft bills and referee parliamentary procedure. Pollock replaces Atwood "Barry" Tate, who retired late last year after 18 years. Tate made $53,000; Pollock, 55, said he expects little change in his $81,000 salary. Pollock will have greater duties and spend more time at council offices. He also plans to keep a small private legal practice. Some council members wanted their own lawyer, to reduce reliance on the county's law office.

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. -- Jackson Pollock wasn't in a good mood, and he wasn't about to see "no more damn people." It's not easy being 124 years old, going on 125. Especially if you can't prove it.After finally agreeing to indulge the public, the man who may be the world's oldest living person said definitively, "I was born Christmas Day, 1866."The certainty here is important. Mr. Pollock, a resident of Central State Hospital's nursing home in Milledgeville, can't document the date of his birth.

The children started by dipping marbles in bowls of blue, red, yellow and orange paint, then rolling them along a long sheet of paper. Then they used other tools -- toothbrushes, combs and hands among them, to create their masterpieces. Roslyn Brown, director of Abrakadoodle, an art education program that she recently brought to Howard County, reminded them that their inspiration for the day was artist Jackson Pollock. "Did he paint with brushes?" she asked. "No!" came the reply from the seven children, going into grades one through three, in the Wednesday evening class at Claret Hall in River Hill Village Center.

NEW YORK -- A new and powerfully beautiful exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum does something that similar presentations almost never do. The established way we think about a pivotal artist gets turned inside out, and the revision is right on target. No Limits, Just Edges: Jackson Pollock Paintings on Paper says something essential - and in previously unconsidered ways. Curator Susan Davidson erases the conventional distinction between drawing and painting in the classic works Pollock made with the drip method.

ON A RECENT summer afternoon, I sat in a small new restaurant in northeast Baltimore County relishing hot dogs. Zack's is a sparkling 20-seat eatery that opened in April in the 8900 block of Old Harford Road, just north of Joppa Road. It promises "hog dogs with an attitude," and, judging by my visits, it lives up to its motto. It treats the hot dog with culinary respect and the proper bun, yet remembers it is basically fun fare. I had the $3.25 Chicago-style classic dog. This is a Vienna Beef frank with a natural casing, steamed, topped with a sweet, bright-green relish, sliced tomatoes, fresh onions, a pickle wedge, celery salt and hot peppers on a poppy-seed bun. It was a quintessential Chicago experience, missing only the roar of the L, the whip of the wind and the fading of the Cubs.
