You know the passage: There's glory for you!' 'I don't know what you mean by "glory",' Alice said. Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. 'Of course you don't - till I tell you. I meant "there's a nice knock-down argument for you!"' 'But "glory" doesn't mean "a nice knock-down argument",' Alice objected. 'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less.' 'The question is,' said Alice, 'whether you can make words mean so many different things.' 'The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, 'which is to be master - that's all.' Always good for a chuckle at Humpty Dumpty's linguistic solipsism.

IN WONDERLAND, Alice reproached Humpty Dumpty for making up new meanings for his words. Her ovoid interlocutor scornfully retorted, "The question is which is to be master -- that's all." Thus "deconstructionism" was born -- the fancy, practiced on too many university campuses, that meanings are subjective, "constructed" through lenses of race, class and gender.To the extent that the deconstructionists are saying that men and women may have different perspectives on Monday night football, they are right, if unoriginal.

HOLLYWOOD - With his wildly colorful T-shirts and gargantuan belt buckles that would make a member of World Wrestling Entertainment proud, 66-year-old Paul Bloch doesn't look like your typical celebrity publicist. But when Tom Cruise, America's favorite out-of-control movie star, announced his hiring this month, Hollywood was waiting to see whether the couch-hopping, psychiatry-bashing, Scientology-proselytizing genie could be stuffed back into the bottle. Bloch certainly seems equipped for the job, with his four decades in the business and his ability to make big, tough male movie stars feel safe.

Consider the myth of the tortured artist. Aimee Mann has, painstakingly. In a way she's the perfect person for the job, because Mann seems to be the quintessence of the model: a dark soul whose beautiful songs spring from a bottomless well of gloom. But - as any Aimee Mann song would quietly, scathingly point out - nothing is as it seems. And it's the tiny twists of perspective, the ghostly shifts in angle of approach, that change everything. That and repeated viewings of Crumb. "That film [a documentary about underground comic book artist Robert Crumb and his extraordinarily dysfunctional family]

A story on egg substitutes in Wednesday's A La Carte sectio incorrectly reported the number of calories and fat in one egg. There are approximately 77 calories and 5 grams of fat in one large egg.The Sun regrets the errors.Have you given up homemade mayonnaise forever? Have you forsaken eggnog, even liberally spiked with bourbon? Does the prospect of Caesar salad make you a little queasy (and I'm not talking about the anchovies)?What these dishes have in common is that they all are made with raw eggs.

HANK THOMPSON, 82 Country singer, songwriter Hank Thompson, a 1989 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, died Tuesday evening at his Keller, Texas, residence, four days after canceling the remainder of a tour. "He was battling aggressive lung cancer," Tracy Pitcox, president of Heart of Texas Records and Mr. Thompson's spokesman, said in a statement. He was the first country entertainer to travel with his own light and sound systems, the first to have a corporate sponsor, the first to record in high-fidelity stereo and the first to broadcast his TV show in color.
