You see jam; Geoffrey Pullum sees syntax.  Professor Pullum is teaching at Brown this year, and heading off to the store to buy some organic preserves, he picked up a jar of Nature's Promise Organic Raspberry Fruit Spread. Then he discovered that the product is not purely organic, and his analysis of the syntax of the label  at Lingua Franca explains some of the treacherous aspects of English. English, you will have noticed, is given to transvestism.

A decision last week by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, upholding federal regulations requiring that meat labels state where the animal was born, raised and slaughtered, is a win for consumers, public health and American meat producers. It means that mystery meat from third-world sweat shops will be far less de rigueur for the discerning public, along with the substantial health risks associated with food from questionable sources. As detailed in a number of books - particularly Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" (1906)

In his recent column ("A silence from liberals that speaks volumes," June 23), Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. condemns Pfc. Bradley Manning as "traitorous. " His evidence? That Seal Team Six found Osama bin Laden in possession of materials Private Manning had released - to the world. Mr. Ehrlich's point is well-taken, but his accusation is unfairly selective. Recently declassified documents reveal that additional incriminating evidence was discovered in bin Laden's hideaway. A box of Rice-a-Roni was in his pantry.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski joined with Virginia lawmakers on Friday in requesting the Obama administration step up enforcement of seafood processors that are fraudulently labeling imported crab meat as a product of the Chesapeake Bay. In a letter to President Barack Obama, Mikulski asked that deceptive labeling be included as a focus of a task force created by the White House in June to address illegal fishing. The Maryland Democrat also requested a briefing on the issue from federal agencies.

Back in the early days of compact discs, some classical music shoppers were known to be wary of the unfamiliar record labels that started popping up in the bins, especially the ones with rock-bottom prices. One budget label, in particular, stood out for its straightforward look, abundance of titles and largely unknown performers: Naxos. What became clear very quickly after that company's launch in 1987 was that the music-making could be taken very seriously. And the product just kept growing and improving.

A few days ago you printed a letter from a guy who was happy about Under Armour staying in Baltimore because they are American manufacturers ("Under Armour shows Md. manufacturing isn't dead" Feb. 21). Next time you have an Under Armour product in your hands look at the label to see where it is manufactured, it is not in the USA. Virtually all of their products of manufactured outside of the USA.

There's nothing different about your Berger cookie. It's just the nutritional label that's changed. A sharp-eyed shopper wrote in to tell us that he had tried the Berger cookie that has 0 grams of trans fat, and that it tasted just as good as the 1-gram fudge-topped classic that's been produced and enjoyed in Baltimore for generations. We went out and bought a pack of trans-fat-free Berger and we also couldn't see or taste anything different about the new Berger cookie.  That's because there is no difference.

Oh, please. Don't call the tsunami of unaccompanied, undocumented migrants a "refugee crisis" ( "America's refugee crisis," July 9). If it were, they'd still be in Mexico. When populations flee, they seek refuge in the adjacent countries, they don't travel endless miles to a distant destination. Labeling those illegally crossing our border "refugees" is just a euphemism to soften the disaster facing this nation. I find it incredible that Mexico is never mentioned in connection with the surge.

The Ravens are at least a touchdown - or more, according to some oddsmakers - underdog to the New England Patriots in Sunday's AFC championship game. The fact that the contest will be played at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., and the Ravens are just 4-4 this season on the road is probably a factor. Also, the Ravens are just 1-6 all time against the Patriots. All of that is just fine with outside linebacker Jarret Johnson. “We like being the underdog,” he said.

In the past two years, Mac Miller, a 20-year-old rapper from Pittsburgh, could have signed a number of deals from major labels. Instead, Miller stayed loyal to his hometown independent label, Rostrum Records. The payoff came in November, when Miller's first album, "Blue Slide Park," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, the first independent album to do so in more than 15 years. In Miller's world, a major label simply isn't necessary, not when he can continue to release free mixtapes (such as last month's "Macadelic")

Gone are the days when factory-produced food went unquestioned. In the age of GMOs and climate change theories, a growing number of consumers are demanding to know how their food gets from the ground to their dinner plates, and local farmers are ready with answers. Whether they are reducing pesticide use, raising animals in pastures instead of confinement or rotating crops to keep the soil healthy, an increasing number of Harford County farmers are taking steps to protect the environment while running a healthy, thriving farm.

Michael Anthony Peroutka and David Whitney, who are vying for the same seat on the Anne Arundel County Council, are members of the League of the South, an organization whose stated goal is the secession of Southern states. Peroutka also believes elected officials should return to a "Biblical worldview" of the founding fathers, and Whitney preaches at his Pasadena church that God is essential in government and that current political leaders are "wicked and corrupt. " Such views and affiliations have landed Peroutka and Whitney on a list of "extremist candidates" compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center, an Alabama-based nonprofit that tracks hate groups.

Producers and artists are quick to mythologize their roles in history.  J. Robbins would rather work.  As the frontman of the '90s post-punk band Jawbox, J. Robbins was a self-described “gung-ho touring maniac.” To the Silver Spring native, signing to the major label Atlantic Records and having the group's video for “Savory” played on MTV were accomplishments, but none were as rewarding as seeing the world. “I just loved to tour because I'd be like, 'Look where the band took me - we made it to the West Coast!

Today, I came across a box we hadn't unpacked when we moved. I tore off the packing tape and cautiously looked inside. I say cautiously because, knowing me, there could have been a three-year-old bag of Peanut M&Ms in there. Not that their age would have deterred me from eating them. Once, I found a yellow Peanut M&M at the bottom of a messenger bag I'd lugged to and from work for three years - at a previous job. I just wiped it on my shirt and ate it. Sadly, there were no M&Ms lurking in the box, I had come across.

I WAS WONDERING when somebody would finally get around to giving the post-baby boom generation an official label.After all, we've been out of the '80s for over a year now, and the so-called Me Generation seems to have gone down the tubes along with the likes of Michael Milken and Ivan Boesky.Well, now the verdict on America's new young people is in and an appropriate group label has been assigned. Christened by none other than Esquire magazine in a recent cover piece, the current crop of Americans under the age of 35 has been named:The Nowhere Generation.

OVER COFFEE last week, Jerry Brown was musing about the possibility of his running for president.His thoughts about a campaign theme were intriguing. Politics has become a corrupt, big-money game that has made millions of Americans cynical.It's no longer a question of what a candidate has to say, but how many millions can he raise from special-interest groups. And how those millions are spent by the hired media wizards who create the slick commercials, buzzwords and sound bites.The ordinary person feels powerless and left out because he truly is powerless and left out. And that's why they don't vote.

Strictly by the rankings in the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association preseason poll, No. 18 St. Mary's 12-8 victory over No. 8 Roanoke on Tuesday would seem to qualify as an upset. It's a label that Seahawks coach Chris Hasbrouck would prefer to avoid. “I think we're to the point where we're wondering when is it going to stop being considered an upset,” he said Wednesday morning. “I think that's the thing. We feel very good about the work we're putting in and the players we're bringing in and the competition.

Did you ever wonder if a restaurant's crabcake was made with Maryland crab or some foreign import? Or if that was really red snapper you bought, or an impostor?  A bill introduced Wednesday in Annapolis would make it illegal for restaurants or markets to mislabel the seafood they sell, and moreover would require them to specify where their crabmeat came from. "If I go to a restaurant and order a 'Maryland-style' crabcake, I'd like to know if it's made with Venezuelan crabmeat," said Del. Eric G. Luedtke , the bill's sponsor.
