Back in 2000, some unsung network graphics specialist had the bright idea of flipping the traditional association of red with the left and blue with the right. On election night that year, when the newscasters began to report voting results, they turned to big maps with Republican majority states colored Che Guevara red while states that went Democratic were awash in Margaret Thatcher blue. Thus were red states and blue states born, a hue switcheroo that instantly recodified the way Americans perceive themselves and their nation.

Q: I have a reverse-painted lamp that has been in my family for about 75 years. The glass shade has a scene of a landscape painted on it. The height of the lamp is 21 inches, and the shade is 18 inches in diameter. It has no manufacturer's or any other identifying marks. What can you tell me about it?A: The scene on the lamp was painted on the inside of the shade -- thus the name "reverse painting." Bases were frequently made of metal with a brass, copper, bronze or silver finish.Unmarked lamps make identification quite difficult.

I usually feature new home-related businesses in this column, but it doesn't hurt every once in a while to point out one that's almost a historic landmark. The American Shade Co. (815 N. Howard St., [401] 728-5891) certainly qualifies; it's been in business since 1916 making custom blinds and shades."We get most of our work by word of mouth," says company vice president Dick Tillman. All blinds and shades are made on the premises in the latest colors and materials. The craftsmanship may be old-fashioned, but the styles aren't.

Once summer break begins, boredom can set in. Before the whining starts, we've come up with a list of activities proven with local families. Because there are two kinds of fun we search for during Maryland's summer - in the shade and in the water - we've divided them accordingly. Ice rinks are most popular in the winter months, but we're not sure why everyone in Baltimore isn't gliding around on the cool ice when it's hazy, hot and humid outside.

Not since Richard Nixon assured an audience of newspaper editors in 1973 that "I am not a crook" has a major political figure so conspicuously defended his character as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has done in declaring, "I am not a bully. " The governor's remark in a mea culpa news conference in Trenton came in the context of the brouhaha over the closing of George Washington Bridge traffic lanes into the town of Fort Lee on the Jersey side. It was ordered by Mr. Christie aides as a vengeful act against the town's Democratic mayor, who had not supported the governor's re-election campaign last year.

American drones have been operating since 2004 in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan, my motherland. But on Nov. 21, a drone fired missiles at a religious seminary in Hangu, a settled area in mainland Pakistan, killing five men in addition to a top leader of the pro-Taliban Haqqani network. Pakistanis are angry. Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party, which has publicly declared the U.S. aid to Pakistan a "curse," is calling for the U.S. drones to be shot down.

The Civil War experience has been preserved over the past 150 years through a variety of media: books, newspaper accounts, films, drawings, paintings, diaries, artifacts and ... quilts. The quilting form will be discussed and displayed Sunday at the Captain Avery Museum in Shady Side, as Mavis Slawson, a textile historian and docent at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, in Frederick, gives a presentation Sept. 8 on "Civil War Soldiers and Their Quilts. " Slawson said she hoped to convey that quilts provided more than just physical comfort to soldiers in the Civil War - they were also a source of emotional and spiritual solace for men who were a long way from home and in harm's way. "Many of these quilts had special meaning to the soldiers in the field or in the hospitals," said Slawson, a Columbia resident who is not only well-versed in the history of Civil War quilts but is an accomplished quilter herself.
