It's National Doughnut Day.  You get a free doughnut at Dunkin' Donuts with the purchase of a beverage. And Krispy Kreme is just plain old giving a free doughnut to anyone who comes in, with no purchase necessary. But ake a look at the stressed-out comments on the promotion's Facebook page. One commenter said, "Our store said we couldn't get an apple fritter or a bar. I thought 'any variety' would mean ANY variety. " Follow-up commenters try to explain that a fritter is not a doughnut.

Dunkin' Donuts, the article in The Sun says, will add 172 locations in the Baltimore-Washington area, in which the company believes that it has identified ''one of the country's most doughnut-prone populations.''How did they find out that I am doughnut-prone?Did they detect the beginnings of a paunch? Is there a lingering aroma of grease like a nimbus around my clothes? Did someone see confectioner's sugar sprinkled on my lapel? Do I display the meditative but furtive countenance of an incipient dunker?

Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Except replace chicken dinner with doughnut breakfast. After four weeks, the Rodgers Forge Elementary Walking School Bus Doughnut Challenge has concluded. And the winner is: the Heathfield South route. Led by Marianne Lohr, Michelle Dinsmore and Holly Storck, this route far and away surpassed the other routes - not only in number of "riders" (37) but in the number of adults who signed up to "drive" the bus (20). Word must have spread that the Heathfield South route won the contest, because on March 5, 20 kids showed up for their jelly-filled reward. And there was much rejoicing.

IT'S FUNNY how people get distracted from what is important. Take for example what happened a few weeks ago when I got that dreaded call from my home-security service that the alarm at my house had gone off and I needed to go there immediately.I called the hospital where my wife is a nurse to advise her of the potential calamity and ran to the parking deck to wake up Ol' Betsy, my 13-year-old vehicle of choice.Traveling moderately fast on the highway, not wanting to risk a speeding ticket from an unsympathetic traffic cop, I saw something that completely shifted my thoughts.

Recently, one of my most closely held beliefs about the world fell apart before my eyes (and taste buds) when I found out the truth about where doughnuts come from.Admit it. You thought it was a doughnut machine, too, didn't you?Ah, the doughnut machine, star attraction of my favorite childhood stories. Having read "The Doughnut," by Robert McCloskey, from his book, "Homer Price," at least a baker's dozen times, the description of the workings of Uncle Ulysses' doughnut machine whirs readily to mind:"The rings of batter kept right on dropping into the hot fat, and an automatic gadget kept right on turning them over, and another automatic gadget kept right on giving them a little push, and the doughnuts kept right on rolling down the little chute, just as regular as a clock can tick."

The heady aroma of fried dough seems to bring memories of sunburned days in Ocean City for customers of the Fractured Prune, the new doughnut shop in Columbia's Hickory Ridge Village Center. That is because, until recently, Fractured Prune doughnuts were available only in Ocean City. Now, franchises are popping up throughout Maryland and the East Coast, including two in Howard County. "We used to go the beach every year since I was a kid, and we would have a tradition of going to the Fractured Prune," said Les Wachterman, who lives in Columbia and recently purchased a chocolate-covered doughnut from the Columbia outlet.

As a lover of doughnuts, I'm surprised I didn't know this. But apparently, National Doughnut Day is today. It's an annual holiday that goes back to 1938 as -- according to different sources -- a fundraiser or to honor the women of the Salvation Army who served doughnuts during WWI, or both. Anyway, what's most relevant today is that some doughnut shops are offering freebies today. Dunkin' Donuts, for example, is offering a free doughnut with the purchase of a beverage at participating stores.

You've heard about the Cronut? Introduced on May 10 at Dominique Ansel's self-named bakery in New York City's Soho neighborhood, the Cronut (the name is trademarked) is the biggest pastry sensation to hit Manhattan since the Magnolia Bakery cupcake craze of the late 1990s. Essentially, the Cronut is part croissant, part doughnut; but the making of a true Cronut is more elaborate than just frying up croissant dough like a doughnut, according to Dominique Ansel's Cronut 101 . Hugh Merwin has compiled an exhaustive guide to the Cronut for The Week.

TORONTO -- Kevin Gausman arrived in the visiting clubhouse of the Rogers Centre on Thursday to find about $300 worth of powdered mini doughnuts stacked inside and at the base of his locker, another nice welcoming gift from center fielder Adam Jones. The 22-year-old Gausman will make his major league debut tonight against the Blue Jays. Gausman -- who was known for eating doughnuts between innings at LSU -- apparently needed to go back to his apartment near Bowie to get his passport before joining the club.
