It has been 140 years since the last slaves marched in shackles from brigs on the Mississippi River through this rowdy gambling city, to the bustling slave market a mile east. At the Forks of the Road market, which by one historian's account probably looked like "a sprawling prison camp," they'd be haggled over and sold to cotton plantation owners who came from across the Deep South. The river made for easy transport of slaves from the declining tobacco plantations near the Chesapeake Bay.

They looked at the photographs of the filthy, emaciated men, and the memories came pouring out, with stories they had never told their closest loved ones.

David Lynch is having an art show. Yes, that David Lynch. It isn't the first for the creative force whose obsessively weird sensibility has brought us films such as "Eraserhead," "Blue Velvet" and "Inland Empire" and the TV series "Twin Peaks." An artist since his high school days, Lynch has chalked up 32 solo shows including three appearances in the late 1980s and early '90s at the James Corcoran Gallery in Santa Monica and a 40-year retrospective of paintings, drawings, photographs and installations in 2007 at the Fondation Cartier in Paris.

America hates a mystery. Oh, we like mystery stories as well as the next country; the telly is full of them. But when you get right down to it, Americans only like to flirt with the mysterious. We prefer the understandable. It's OK with us if the country is inundated with immigrants as long as they quickly learn English, get a jogging suit and drive like everybody else. No double parking. No making right-hand turns from left-hand lanes. Behave in predictable fashion.
