After my first attempt at boeuf bourguignon in high school, I complained to my French teacher that something was missing. His advice was concise: "Add thyme." I tried again, this time, simmering the stew with a liberal dose of dried French thyme. What a difference! But it wasn't until I grew my own thyme that I learned how much that single herb enhances soups, stews, pates, vegetables and more. "Thyme is a good universal herb," says Rolfe Hagen, owner of the Thyme Garden Herb Co. in Alsea, Ore., which grew out of Hagen's gourmet restaurant there.

WASHINGTON -- In the hands of Margaret Hagen, an anecdote can be a deadly weapon. Here is an example from her new book, ''Whores of the Court'':''David Willard Phipps Jr., a Gulf War veteran, was convicted of first-degree murder . . . for killing his wife's lover, Michael Presson. Phipps did not deny killing Presson. . . . He claimed that he was unable to formulate the mens rea [intent] for first-degree murder because he was suffering from depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.''Judge Julian Guinn of Tennessee apparently thought this claim did not hold water and instructed the jury, 'I charge you that post-traumatic stress disorder and major depression are not defenses to a criminal charge.

As the title character in Nicholas Wright's "Mrs. Klein," the famed Uta Hagen is, in a sense, portraying two women.As Melanie Klein, the pioneering Viennese-born child psychoanalyst, Hagen speaks in authoritarian tones, gestures forcefully and sits ramrod straight. In contrast, as Melanie Klein, a mother about to attend her son's funeral, she frequently lapses into sniveling tears and slumps in a chair as if fighting a losing battle against both gravity and her emotions.Granted, both sides of Klein's egotistical personality are present in Nicholas Wright's disturbing psychological drama, at Washington's Kennedy Center as part of a limited, post-New York tour.
