If you're not used to the flavor of skim milk, however, you may notice the dish doesn't taste quite as rich.What is a caper?A caper is a flower bud from the caper bush native to Asia and the Mediterranean.

When Brenda Brown stood before a judge, she figured she had only one real option: plead guilty. She had been caught with three bags of marijuana in her pocket in Northwest Baltimore. She didn't know that Kendell Richburg, the arresting officer, had lied about having seen her buy the drugs, potentially violating her constitutional right against unreasonable search and seizure. Now, her case is among hundreds under review by prosecutors in light of Richburg's conduct. Brown, 52, is serving a sentence that includes a year of probation, court costs, counseling, drug testing and another possession count on a lengthy rap sheet.

A pancake by any other name is still a pancake.Around the world, from crepes in France and enchiladas in Mexico to blintzes in Russia and egg rolls in China, all are extensions of the basic pancake. And the closest in style, simplest in method and -- by reputation -- most elegant of these is the crepe.Another advantage is that crepes are so thin and light, they add relatively small amounts of fat and cholesterol to the diet, even when made the traditional way with whole milk, butter and eggs.

Impervious to cynicism and layered with critic-retardants, "Mary Poppins" has plopped into the Kennedy Center Opera House for a nice long stay that should keep the box office humming. The musical, a Disney/Cameron Mackintosh presentation that boasts the theatrical bells and whistles expected from those forces, might not fully satisfy folks devoted to, and expecting a copy of, the popular 1964 movie that inspired it. Devotees of the children's book series by P.L. Travers that started it all might find a nit or two to pick as well.

Kyriakos, 29, of South Baltimore, who returned from vacation Monday to find numerous bank overdraft notices in her mailbox.

I meet lots of people who think they're getting a 500 mg calcium jolt by switching to calcium-fortified Skim Delux milk. If they're doing the shake, they're OK. If not, that extra calcium is going into the trash with the carton.Ted and I have been drinking Skim Delux for several months now. We love it, because it contains some soluble fiber that creates a mouth-feel more like 2 percent or whole, which is what got Ted hooked. And the big bonus is the added calcium. Just two 8-ounce servings daily get us quickly to the recommended 1,000 mg.When we first started using Skim Delux, we bought half-gallon paperboard cartons, and we'd just open and pour.

In honor of what may or may not be George Washington's birthday, I am going to tell some truths about the state of American food.I mention George for a couple of reasons. First, he has a reputation as a truthful guy. As a kid he admitted to chopping down a cherry tree. He did not claim that anti-Druid pressure groups made him do it. He told the facts. There was a tree . . . then there was kindling. George would take the consequences.Another reason I mention George is that as I write this column, most Americans have the day off. Many are honoring the birthday of our nation's first president by going skiing, purchasing bedsheets and pushing chips through dip.Most of these celebrants couldn't tell you the date of George's real birthday.

Dear guys in prison: Thanks for all the letters, and thanks for all the letters, and thanks for even more letters. I am reading them all. Honest. It takes a while, but I read them. (OK, some I skim a little, but I try not to miss the highlights.) A few observations: You all get passing grades for penmanship. Obviously you have had time to sharpen this skill, and it shows. No letter has been chucked because its handwriting gave me a headache. So far, so good. Secondly, I'd like to commend most of you on your writing - that is, your ability to communicate exactly what you wish you hadn't done in the past and what you say you want to do in the future.
