Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, sharing lunch with a group of conventionally dressed men and women at the Johns Hopkins Faculty Club, lights the room with sheer candlepower.She is diminutive, with small features set in a gleaming ebony face. She wears the garb of an African market woman, an outfit of vivid orange, sapphire blue and black. She has six gold bracelets flashing on each wrist, more gold glinting from her throat, and long fingers that wave gracefully like the wispy tips of willow branches.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- It is the shoes that stop me.They are brown and look new, the rubber on the soles still thick, black and unmarked. They are toddler-size boots, made for bouncing in sandboxes and climbing on furniture. They are hanging by their laces from a length of chain-link fence.I had not planned it this way. Had not made a special effort to be in this particular city during this particular week. Hadn't even thought about it until I was on the way to catch the plane for a business trip.

Shinholt of Columbia said: "I'm glad to respond with a favorite dish my grandmother served at our family gatherings.

She has been gone now for almost 15 years, and it took a little bit of searching to track down her recipe book.

Miss Maryland, you did us proud. Sunday night in Las Vegas, 27-year-old Nana Meriwether, from Potomac, finished as the runner-up in the 2012 Miss USA pageant. The title went to Miss Rhode Island, 20-year-old Olivia Culpo. Clearly, Meriwether didn't lose because her resume was lacking. It's impressive enough that she graduated from Washington's prestigious Sidwell Friends School (where the alumni list includes the children of presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Nixon and Clinton, and where the Obama girls are currently enrolled)
