If you never saw the original on A&E, you won't think ABC's "Cracker" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) is all that bad. But be warned, if you were a fan of the British version starring Robbie Coltrane, it will make you ill.Robert Pastorelli, from "Murphy Brown," has the sorry task of trying to replace Coltrane as Gerry "Fitz" Fitzgerald, the police psychologist who solves cases no one else can because he is every bit as troubled and out of control as...

Los Angeles -- The "angry white male" is someone we've been hearing a lot about since the November election. He's become shorthand for explaining the sweeping conservative victory.Unfortunately, like so many cultural phenomena, he's gone straight to the status of icon without much explanation of who or what he is. Until tonight, that is.Dr. Eddie "Fitz" Fitzgerald, the troubled forensic psychologist played by Robbie Coltrane in "Cracker," returns in a bril- liant exploration of white working-class rage and murder, titled "To Be Somebody," at 9 tonight on the Arts & Entertainment cable channel.

Center Stage could easily have chosen a work of great dramatic depth and weight to open its 51st season - some masterwork of the vast American theatrical canon, like, say, Eugene O'Neill's "Strange Interlude" from 1928. But, noooooooo. Instead, the company managed to drag up another piece from the very same year, one that dares mock that O'Neill drama, not to mention all that is sacred about society, art, business, honor and romance. To which theater-goers all over Baltimore should respond with one word: Hooray.

"Bless me, Father, for I have sinned," Eddie Fitzgerald says, easing into his first confession in 30 years. "I drink too much. I smoke too much. I gamble too much. I am too much."Fitz is back. Dr. Eddie "Fitz" Fitzgerald (Robbie Coltrane), one of the most flawed and fascinating hero/anti-heroes in the history of television cop drama, returns on cable channel A&E tonight, and he's carrying around even more guilt, anger and existential angst than he did during last year's award-winning season of exquisite "Cracker" mysteries.

CHEBEAGUE ISLAND, Maine -- Before it was over, they begged, badgered and cajoled. They wrote hard-edged letters and soft-hearted songs, ignoring those who ridiculed their cause. Yesterday, their passion paid off: The people of Chebeague Island saved a cracker.Only a few residents traveled to Boston to hear Nabisco formally announce that it is bringing back the Crown Pilot -- a New England chowder cracker discontinued last spring. Most of them knew that the place to savor victory was this snow-covered island about 10 miles north of Portland, where a national campaign to reclaim the snack began almost by accident.

For more than a decade I invited friends to our house for New Year's Eve dinner. But last year, feeling burnt out, I suggested to my husband that we forgo entertaining on Dec. 31 and eat out instead. We did, and I confess that I was disappointed. Although we had a lovely meal, I missed creating the menu, setting a festive table and inviting others to our home to enjoy this special night. This year I've decided to reinstate my annual celebration and plan to share the cooking with another couple.

Anarchists have taken over Center Stage . Not the bomb-throwing kind, but the quip-smacking, horn-honking, non-sequitur-spinning types known as the Marx Brothers. Those indelible siblings - weirdly mustachioed Groucho, fake-Italian Chico, silent Harpo, straight man Zeppo - are being resurrected in an adaptation of "Animal Crackers" that opens the Center Stage season this week. The original "Animal Crackers" was a 1928 Broadway musical that provided a typically nutty stage vehicle for the Marx Brothers and, two years later, an equally nutty film.

Bacon-wrapped oysters with Old Bay butter, “Peachy Keen” crab cakes and Old Bay chocolate ice cream are just a few of the items that earned Alonso's Restaurant bragging rights and an award of 70 pounds of Old Bay Seasoning.  Alonso's recipes were competing against other restaurants in the recently concluded Old Bay “Taste of Baytriotism” restaurant promotion. Larry Perl of the Messenger was at the scene when the 70 pounds of Old Bay arrived at Alonso's kitchen door.

Maryland-based jockey Mario Pino says he once heard that the great race rider Laffit Pincay would wear his underwear inside out. For luck. Ramon Dominguez, Eclipse Award-winning jockey the last two years, likes to have Perrier water and animal crackers in his jockey room stall. And he puts his left boot on first. Always. They call horse racing the fastest two minutes in sports, but a jockey's preparation begins the night before and continues until the moment the starting gates clang open.

Fannie Felice of St Augustine, Fla., was looking for a recipe one of her favorite cakes that her mother-in-law used to make some years ago. The cake was made with graham cracker crumbs and no flour. It also had coconut in the batter and was frosted with a chocolate whipped cream. Nancy Snyder from Easton sent in a recipe she found in one of her cookbooks, "All Cakes Considered" (Chronicle, 2009) by Melissa Gray, which she thought sounded very close to what Felice was searching for. This is not your simple one-bowl cake, but the effort involved in making this beauty is well worth the reward.

I'm ready to start a home-baked cracker revolution to match the bread revolution of the past 15 years. I've spent nearly two decades trying to persuade folks to bake their own bread and, most recently, asked the nearly impossible: Make 100 percent whole-grain breads at home. It's been a noble, uphill battle. But I've encountered far less resistance in urging people to make their own whole-grain crackers - toasty, nutty, crisp, crackly crackers. Why the receptivity? It's probably because crackers are far easier and faster to make than breads.
