She said she had a recipe from the Feb. 6, 1990, issue of Woman's Day magazine. "I never tried it. Now I will," she wrote. The dish features breaded chicken breasts, which are topped with fresh tomatoes and onions, and then baked. Blum also included other information about Bono from the article.

Studies document the extraordinary unmet legal needs of low and middle-income people. To appreciate this, visit Baltimore City's Rent Court, where hundreds of tenants, including families with children, face eviction and homelessness. Or watch a docket of debt-collection cases in district court, where many defendants face financial ruin; or custody cases in a circuit court, where distraught parents fight for their children. The overwhelming majority of these litigants are representing themselves, often against lawyers.

More scoop on the guy who, in the last days of the governor's race, lent $500,000 to the Martin O'Malley campaign. I told readers the other day that John Coale was Greta van Susteren's husband, Lisa Marie Presley's divorce lawyer, a prominent Scientologist and a self-proclaimed ambulance chaser who has run afoul of the bar in Indiana. All true, but Coale called the other day to say he also is: An O'Malley supporter who isn't looking for political favors. (He was named chairman of the governor-elect's juvenile services workgroup Friday, but there's no money in that.

WASHINGTON - Accompanied by a phalanx of religious leaders, rock star Bono got a little testy Tuesday at a news conference urging President Bush to make good on promised AIDS funding for Africa. Wearing wrap-around blue-tinted sunglasses and dressed all in black, the lead singer for U2 said he was trying to take a calm approach in convincing Bush and Congress to appropriate promised funds. "If you want me to do angry, I can do angry," Bono said, standing in front of a poster that read "Keep America's Promise to Africa."

SOWETO, South Africa - Walking the muddy streets of this poor black township, they make the most unlikely duo. Irish rocker Bono, the Grammy Award-winning lead singer of U2, looks like he has slept in his clothes. He's unshaven, his hair a black mop, his eyes hidden behind his blue wraparound sunglasses. By his side, the no-nonsense Republican Paul H. O'Neill, a former corporate executive turned U.S. Treasury secretary, is decked out in a well-pressed gray suit as if he were about to step into a board meeting.

Barbara McDowell is banking on the free legal advice she received at one of Maryland Legal Aid's recent pro bono days to help resolve a seven-year child support dispute with the father of her grandson.

IN THE course of one lunar month, three widows have been elected to positions once held by their late husbands. In California, Lois Capps won a special vote to serve out the remaining term of Democratic representative Walter Capps. Mary Bono was similarly elected to replace Republican Sonny Bono. On the other side of the planet, Sonia Gandhi was voted president of the political party led by her late husband, Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.This is an age in which all sorts of social stereotypes -- the good scout, the passive grandmother, the uninvolved father -- have undergone a solid debunking.
