Boston. -- After all was said and done, after all was added and subtracted and shuffled around a bit, Bill Clinton did what he promised. The class photo of his Cabinet presented a more diverse portrait of Americans than had ever been assembled around a presidential table.This was the official breakdown: Six white men, three black men, three white women, two Hispanic men, and one black woman. That's 15 secretaries and a whole lot of counting going on.But before we put aside the numbers and get on with the policies, one last observation about the way we divvy up Americans these days.

For many years, Carol Price of Minersville, Pa., made her favorite bean soup from a recipe that appeared on the bag of Jack Rabbit dried beans. Unfortunately, she lost the recipe some time ago and was hoping someone else might have it still. Gladys Wilt of Lothian sent in a recipe that she says she found on a bag of Jack Rabbit Black Turtle Beans several years ago. I hope this is the recipe that Price is looking for. The recipe is for a traditional black-bean soup. The soup is fairly easy to make but you'll need to start preparing it at least a day before you want to serve it. As with most soups that use dried beans, the beans must be soaked overnight and then require several hours of simmering.

Enjoy the warmth you're feeling today -- that Christmas glow won't last. The holiday spirit will fade in a couple of days and then it will hit -- it's winter! Time for scarves, gloves, long johns, boots and bean soup. Growing up, my brothers and I relished bean-soup night -- a frequent cold-weather event when Dad took over the stove and rustled up a large pot brimming with white beans, chunks of vegetables and a meaty hambone.We swilled down this hearty concoction with delight while Dad pontificated about the virtues of the noble dried bean.

It's hard work, picking beans, but many Polish immigrants felt that they didn't have a choice during the Depression years. Money was tight, jobs were scarce, families were large and discrimination was rampant. So come summertime, mothers would head out from Baltimore to farmland in Pennsylvania and Maryland with their children in tow. Some of the women skinned tomatoes or husked corn, but mostly, families with children as young as 5 worked side by side picking beans. They would work six days a week, heading out when the sky was dark and the fields wet with dew. If they were lucky, they made 2 cents a pound (some remember a half penny or 1 penny a pound)

Mike, my favorite bachelor, is on his own, trying to survive in a less-than-cooperative economy.Tough as it is, independence has forced him to develop latent skills, such as cooking and budgeting. And there's a bonus.Some lessons in economics, like "beans cost less than steak," provide major health benefits, such as lower cholesterol, easier weight control, lower cancer risks and better control of diabetes.There's more. The health benefits eventually produce lower health care costs, another lesson in economics.

Why is it that food always seems to taste better where it originates?You can't tell a Marylander that a crab cake from Seattle is better than one made from a crab fresh out of the bay. You better not try to praise the local Mexican fare to a Texan. And few Floridians will be convinced that black beans taste good outside of Miami's Little Havana or Tampa's Ybor City.Soon after I moved to Baltimore from Florida nearly five years ago, I went into black bean soup withdrawal. Since then, I have discovered some decent restaurant versions that ease the cravings.

DARLINGTON -- Maybe you can't go home again, but this writer did the next best thing Saturday. And it was like old home day.The winding road took me past Broad Creek, then the long lane came to a farmhouse built in 1749, now fully modernized and overlooking cornfields and meadows where deer, squirrels and other wildlife romp.There, presiding over a pack of river rats, family and friends was a grand old lady known to Susquehanna River regulars as Miss Mary. Her full name is Mary McCann, and for 17 years until 1970 she kept busy cooking for the fishers of the Susky.

Mixed reaction to soup mixes * Item: Manischewitz Homestyle Soup Mixes * What you get: 6 servings * Cost: About $3 * Preparation time: 2 hours to 2 1/4 hours * Review: Bean soup is one of my favorite comfort foods, so I couldn't wait to try Manischewitz's new mixes. The boxes include beans, seasonings and other dry ingredients. The cook adds tomatoes, onion and other items. Though a bit on the garlicky side, the White Bean & Pasta was so tasty I'm not embarrassed to say I actually ate some of the leftovers straight from the refrigerator container.

A search for the simplest chicken-soup recipe led me to an old and, unfortunately, long-ignored cookbook on my shelf, Truly Unusual Soups, by Lu Lockwood. That's where I rediscovered this recipe for a chililike soup. Looking down at the splattered page brought me back to when I was 23 and just starting out in newspapers covering the small but tony Connecticut town where Lockwood managed a popular restaurant. Truly Unusual Soups was loaded with quick recipes, of which Hummingbird Bean Soup was the best.

I don't know if the restaurant is still in San Juan, but the food was wonderful.

Remember when Euell Gibbons made the Johnny Carson show just by claiming, har-har, that dandelions were edible? What a goof he was! Well, guess what? My local supermarket had big stacks of dandelion greens in stock all winter. Truly, nothing is too weird to show up in the American produce department these days. When I started cooking - shortly after the introduction of gas stoves, it now seems - it was quite an event to be able to find red bell peppers. Each summer, I'd order a case from my friendly grocer, roast and peel them in one blazing backyard briquette orgy and then freeze them to last the rest of the year.

Raleigh Herman Atkins became known as the 102nd person murdered in Baltimore this year. To those who knew him best, though, Atkins was a throwback to another era -- a person who carried his pride and compassion with a silent sense of dignity.Family members said Atkins never hesitated to extend a hand to someone in need. And he also could cook up a mean pot of bean soup.Atkins, 81, of the 1700 block of Clarkson St., was stabbed once in the back after two men forced their way into his home yesterday looking for his grandson, police said.
