Baltimore: NAACP Powder-filled letter sent to branch The FBI is investigating a possible hate crime after a letter containing white powder was received by the Baltimore branch of the NAACP. The letter was opened Friday afternoon by branch President Marvin "Doc" Cheatham Sr. As he did so, the white powder spilled over him. He called 911, and Baltimore police, rescue officials and FBI agents arrived. Officials determined that the white powder was not anthrax, but boric acid. Cheatham did not read the letter, but said that FBI agents told him it contained racist sentiments.

I've been searching for Dutch-process cocoa. In the supermarkets, I just see Nestle and Hershey's cocoa, neither of which says "Dutch" or "processed with alkali." Chocolate liquor has two principal components - cocoa solids and cocoa butter - and in 1828, a Dutchman named Coenraad Van Houten invented a method for separating the two. The newly independent cocoa solids also could be pulverized to make a fine powder with lots of chocolate flavor but little fat: cocoa powder. Van Houten also invented a process by which cocoa powder, which is naturally quite acidic, was treated with an alkaline to neutralize the flavor and deepen the color.

Food manufacturers just love wasabi, using this Japanese rhizome (or cheaper American horseradish) to jazz up oils, mayonnaise, dressings, crackers, nuts and even jams. Those looking to experience the trend can find wasabi products in a variety of locations, from neighborhood supermarkets to fancy food stores and Asian markets. Here are some of the wasabi products to look for: Hime Japanese horseradish powder, $2.80 to $4 an ounce. This powder makes a green paste with a flavor as bold as its bright green color.

Mexican sweet chocolate is a blend of ground cocoa nibs (the seeds of cocoa pods), raw (unrefined) sugar, and cinnamon. It should not be confused with "instant" drink mixes, cocoa powder or milk chocolate. Molded into small cakes, it is available at many supermarkets specializing in Mexican foods. Store dried polenta in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Use within 6 months of purchase. Cole's Cooking A to Z

Cavaliers@Celtics 8 p.m. [ESPN] You figure these two teams very well could end up butting heads to decide who gets to the NBA Finals from the Eastern Conference. And have you noticed how LeBron James (left) is being called LBJ these days? Next thing you know, instead of tossing powder into the air before a game, he'll be picking up a dog by his ears.

WASHINGTON - A powdery substance suspected to be the poison ricin was discovered yesterday in a Capitol Hill mailroom near the office of Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, raising new fears of bioterrorism. Several tests found the white powder to be ricin, a potentially deadly toxin derived from castor beans, and additional tests were being conducted. At a late night Capitol Hill news conference, Frist, a Tennessee Republican, said the incident was being investigated as a crime. Frist, a physician who has written about bioterrorism, sought to reassure Capitol Hill staffers that all precautions were being taken.
