In the past few years, pastry crazes have managed to bring out the sweet tooth in just about everybody. Perhaps the fads are owed to the emergence of reality shows such as "D.C. Cupcakes," "The Cupcake Girls," "Cupcake Wars," .... and you get the idea. Whatever the origin, the burgeoning popularity of pastries has been fueled by creativity. The question is no longer what can you put on a pastry, but what can't you use to accentuate a baked treat. Now, with a doughnut craze in full swing, we're once again left trying to solve this delicious dilemma, as we stuff our faces with the glazed rings.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The message was delivered early, and forcefully, when Charles Barkley leveled Karl Malone going through a pick in the first quarter of yesterday's National Basketball Association All-Star Game.The collision between these two massive power forwards could be heard throughout the strangely subdued Charlotte Coliseum and was felt by the West team."Charles set the tone for the way the game was going to be played," Magic Johnson said later.Meaning that defense -- an ingredient usually absent from these midseason affairs -- was there in surprising abundance.

Orchids to the Board of Overseers at the Baltimore School for the Arts for their decision to appoint Chris Ford as the new director! The appointment is certainly an honor for Dr. Ford and his family, but even more an honor for the school. A great musician in his own right, Dr. Ford could well have pursued a performance career, but instead chose to share his gift and love of music and the arts with the city's young people, ourselves included. In its relatively short history, the School for the Arts has been a beautiful success story on just about every level, not the least of which is its record of choosing the most outstanding individuals to serve as its directors.
