Mothers of Invention! That’s crazy! A bust of the groundbreaking musician and free speech activist Frank Zappa that was originally given to the city of Baltimore (Zappa’s hometown) by his fans in Lithuania – although he never visited the country – now has a final resting place: in front of a library in Highlandtown, a working-class district of the city. Ironically, Frank’s son Dweezil is the assistant custodian at the very same library. That’s nice. [MSNBC/AP]
