Diplomats and businessmen from around the globe. Tourists from across the country. Day-trippers from neighboring states. They flock to the nation's capital for commerce and pleasure and might also try their luck at a planned MGM casino near the National Harbor development, high on a bluff above the Potomac River and just south of Washington. MGM says more than two-thirds of the visitors to the resort are expected to come from outside Maryland. Such an international destination could transform a Maryland gambling industry that until now has mostly focused on creating a regional foothold.

I have to backtrack a little. Several weeks ago I suggested using olive oil as a spread for bread instead of butter (high in saturated fat) or margarine (high in trans-fatty acids), because it's a healthier kind of fat.I'll stand by that recommendation, but with some caveats.One is to limit the quantity you use, because eating too much fat of any kind increases the likelihood of unnecessary weight gain, as well as increasing your risks for some kinds of cancer.The second is to be very careful if you're inclined to prefer garlic in your oil. Several years ago the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Heart disease is still the No. 1 killer of Americans. It's No. 1 for all men, and No. 1 for all women.Lots of people have caught on to that and have quit smoking and improved eating and exercise habits, based on recommendations from our nation's experts.So it's disconcerting when something like the margarine/transfatty acid story roars into the headlines. It often makes us feel confused and helpless. And it creates a backlash against taking responsibility for our own health. That's why it's important to keep the relative risks in perspective.

What it is -- One of a new line of avocado oils from Olivado Gourmet Foods What we like about it --Avo cado oil has a neutral flavor and a higher "smoke point" (the tempera ture at which an oil starts to disinte grate) than other oils, making it a versatile choice for deep-frying and baking, as well as drizzling on vege tables and bread. It hasn't been widely available, but the Olivado, a New Zealand company, is trying to change that with a line of un adorned and flavor-infused avocado oils.

For fans of movie-theater popcorn -- "the Godzilla of snack foods," according to a report released earlier this week -- there may be a kernel of hope. At least in Baltimore.Here, theater-goers have a good chance of sitting down with a tub of corn popped in vegetable oil, which in health terms, is better for you than that popped with the saturated-fat coconut oil cited in a study released Monday by the Center for Science in the Public Interest.The watchdog group reports that a 16-cup serving of unbuttered, coconut-oil-popped corn has 901 calories and 43 grams of cholesterol.

On several occasions we've looked at the little-book phenomenon, the rage among publishers for miniature works of minimal size and length, designed more to be small gifts than serious additions to anyone's library.Here we have something different: "Oil & Vinegar" and "Honey" are middle-size books -- "Honey" is 6 by 9 inches, while "Oil & Vinegar," although smaller in page size, has more than 250 of them. Both provide discussions of the indicated food stuffs, and they each contain a good deal of narrative with recipes added at the end.Of the two, "Oil & Vinegar" is the more substantial and practical.

The question in Federal Hill these days: How many bars is one too many? The booming district around Cross Street Market has added an average of 127 bar stools each year for the past decade despite a state law aimed at limiting new liquor establishments. A proposed 300-seat beer garden has pushed some residents from frustration to outrage over the thought of more drunken revelers slopping into their streets. "We've reached a critical mass of drinkers," said Eric Costello, president of the Federal Hill Neighborhood Association.

The Department of Legislative Services is out with its analysis of Gov. Martin O'Malley's proposal to expand and overhaul Maryland's gambling program, with the key element, politically anyway, the addition of a sixth casino in Prince George's County. Based on what DLS found, it is now quite clear why Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker is in favor of this effort. It's obvious why the developer of National Harbor, the preferred site for a new casino, wants it, and why MGM is lined up to operate that facility if it opens.

The Baltimore City Police Department and the local media deserve an "A" for muscling the disappearance of 17-year-old Phylicia Simone Barnes onto the national stage. But the national media deserve a failing grade. Ms. Barnes, a straight "A" black student from North Carolina, vanished Dec. 28 while visiting relatives in Baltimore. After unprecedented local media saturation and 24/7 police searches failed to discover the missing girl, Anthony Guglielmi, spokesman for the Baltimore City Police Department, pleaded for the national media to give Ms. Barnes' disappearance the same broad coverage as that given other missing young women.

Can good taste and good health coexist at Thanksgiving dinner?Yes. Especially if you bear in mind that diet-over-time is more important than any single eating event. Lighten up on fat and calories for a few days before and after the fabulous feast. Then moderate indulgence on the big day will average out.For your festival meal, focus fat where it will most affect taste. Eliminate fat where it will go unnoticed.Start with a fresh fowl, which is naturally more juicy and delicious than a frozen one. Avoid "self-basting" birds that add superfluous saturated fat to your naturally heart-healthy centerpiece.

At 12 days and counting, the length of coverage has already run longer than anyone's idea of a state funeral. Today, the degree of saturation of TV coverage on the death of Michael Jackson reaches the boiling point. All of the major networks and cable channels will be offering live coverage of the Jackson memorial service starting at 1 p.m. at the Staples center in Los Angeles. NBC had looked as if it would skip live coverage and go only with a one-hour prime-time special Tuesday night.

What's to love about coconut? It's rich and creamy, an addictive staple in Thai, Indian and Caribbean cuisine. Coconut is high in immunity-boosting lauric acid, which is touted (though not proven) to lower cholesterol and rev metabolism. What's not to love? Coconut is high in saturated fat. However, your body digests it more readily than animal fats, so don't shun the coconut. Add lushness to vegetables and whole grains with canned coconut milk. This is no sugary pina colada mix, but a solution of grated, squeezed coconut meat and water.
