Paella is a complicated dish under any circumstances. But when the shrimp has just awakened from a nap, the tomato is kicking the clam and the chicken leg is having trouble wedging himself into the stew pot -- well, even the chef at Tio Pepe's would probably quit in despair.But not Cheri Gough, or her husband, Richard. It was their fondness for Tio Pepe's version of this Spanish stew that inspired the Carroll County couple to make a paella of theirseven children in order to win free round-trip tickets to Spain.

"Myth of the Welfare Queen," by David Zucchino, Scribner, 368 pages. $25.The story of women on welfare is not narrative friendly. To borrow a famous phrase, life on public assistance is not one thing after another, it's the same damn thing over and over again. Sometimes, just getting through the day can be a triumph, especially late in the month.Yet despite the built-in limitation, this book is a page-turner, a tour de force in reporting on the real women (and men) who rely on the patchwork of federal programs - Aid to Families with Dependent Children, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, USDA food stamps - that most of us know as simply as welfare.
