PALMYRA, N.Y. - Many of the world's faithful make pilgrimages to Mecca. Others worship in the holy city of Jerusalem. And some even find their way here to a remote grove where a 14-year-old farm boy claimed to behold God and Christ in 1820. That boy, Joseph Smith Jr., later founded the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and led an exodus westward that eventually settled Salt Lake City. Now, 180 years after that divine revelation, thousands of church members are trekking back to the Palmyra area, about 20 miles southeast of Rochester, to visit the birthplace of Mormonism.

The problem with "And the Sea Will Tell" is that it can't decide what it wants to be. Just when you think you've tuned into a good, solid murder mystery, this four-hour CBS production turns into a courtroom drama.And even then, it's not a drama about a crusading prosecutor using scanty shards of precious evidence to prove to the jury that this decidedly creepy villain did the misdeed, but one about a well-paid defense attorney trying to persuade a jury that the creepy villain's girlfriend didn't do it.Of course, even if she didn't, Jennifer Jenkins is in the innocent-but-still-real-stupid category, making it hard for the audience to work up a great deal of passionate sympathy for this potential victim of injustice.

Palmyra, Pa. -- Where there's smoke, there's history in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, where Lebanon bologna has remained a popular foodstuff since the 18th century. The uninitiated may dismiss Lebanon bologna as an obscure luncheon meat, but for those who grew up eating slices of the stuff in sandwiches, served fried with eggs or smeared with cream cheese, it is an "identity food" redolent of southeastern Pennsylvania's distinctive culinary heritage. "True Lebanon sausage," writes Evan Jones in American Food: The Gastronomic Story, "is made of nothing but coarsely ground beef pre-cured and aged in barrels, then seasoned with sweet herbs and assertive spices, forced into airtight casings, and smoked over smoldering sawdust for a matter of days."
