The twin tasks of improving relations between Washington and Beijing and shrinking the enormous U.S. trade deficit to a manageable size depend to a large degree on China importing more American goods and services. That's partly the job of Donald Tong. As Hong Kong's commissioner for economic and trade affairs in the United States, Tong has the task of building trans-Pacific ties and promoting that special Chinese administrative district as a destination for U.S. exports, not just a source of imports.

Call them Maryland racing's Odd Couple.Owner Bob Quinichett lives in suburban Washington, shuns publicity and thrives on selling a horse for a score.Trainer Leon Blusiewicz lives in "Bawlmer Counny," seeks out reporters, and thrives on cashing a bet for a score.Together, Quinichett (pronounced Keh-NEE-chee) and Blusiewicz have come up with another good horse. Their colt, Tong Po, will leave Sunday for Aqueduct, where he will begin training for the $500,000 Wood Memorial on April 20.The colt won the Tesio Stakes at Pimlico Race Course on March 17 by eight lengths.

Tong Po is out, Tank might be in.The Kentucky Derby status of two Maryland-bred colts changed dramatically over the weekend.Tong Po, who had been training forwardly at Aqueduct for Saturday's Wood Memorial, pulled up with a sore shin in his right foreleg after a routine gallop on Saturday and is definitely out of the Derby.In fact, he's already back at Pimlico and is not expected to race again until the Saratoga, N.Y., meet in August.Meanwhile, Tank, another Maryland-bred colt who was expected to bypass the Derby for the Preakness, now might go to Louisville after a 7 1/2 -length victory Saturday in the Garden State Stakes.

Tong Po unleashed a searing rally turning for home and went on to a stunning victory in the $175,000 Federico Tesio Stakes at Pimlico Race Course yesterday.The colt was making just his third career start, but he won Maryland's only major Triple Crown prep by an emphatic eight lengths as the longest shot (31-1) in a field of six."I always said this was a good colt," his trainer, 58-year-old Leon Blusiewicz, said afterward.The rest of the Tesio field finished in near-inverse order of favoritism: Haymaker, the 2-5 favorite, finished last, and King Mutesa, the 5-2 second choice, finished fourth.

For the last two weeks, Leon Blusiewicz has been living in a hotel in Garden City, Long Island, plotting a dream.The 59-year-old trainer, known simply as "Blue," is Kentucky Derby bound, by way of New York.At least, that's the best case scenario.Blue trains a lightly raced colt named Tong Po, and until a few weeks ago, no one knew much about this horse with the unusual name, which means "golden tree" in Thai.That's when the dark bay colt, born and raised at Green Willow Farm near Westminster and bred and owned by Bob and Lorraine Quinichett of Silver Spring, took off at the quarter pole leading into Pimlico's long stretch and drew away to an eight-length win in the $175,000 Federico Tesio Stakes.

For our money, tongs are the handiest tool in the kitchen. The best operate like an extra pair of hands while keeping yours from getting burned or con-taminated by raw meat. For Independence Day next week, lots of backyard cooks will pull out the extra-long grilling tongs. They're great for keeping your arms safe from the flames, but a little unwieldy for other cooking and serving jobs (and for storing later). We tested four sets of tongs on the grill and in the kitchen to see if we could find one winner that did it all, but we ended up with two favorites -- one for grilling only, one for other types of cooking.

He's darling, isn't he, that man of yours? Three seasons of the year he can barely brew coffee, but then comes dusk on a summer Saturday. "Stand back, honey," he growls. With a ceremonial flourish, he waves his tongs about like a scepter, and then ascends (trumpet fanfare, please) to his glorious, if brief, reign as the Charlemagne of charcoal. If you think such chest-beating pageantry is an American aberration -- something your dad picked up from his dad, and that Grandpa learned watching television's Father Knows Best -- you're quite mistaken.

I am looking for a good way to roast peppers ... long, short or bell; hot or sweet. Please send me any suggestions. The first thing to do is to turn your broiler on to high, then place those wonderful peppers on a foil-lined pan. Put the pan on a rack high in the oven so that the peppers are close to the broiler units. Using tongs, keep turning the peppers so that their skins are completely blackened on all sides. When they are good and charred, remove the pan and seal the peppers in a plastic bag to steam and cool.

The tong enforcer from New York had a few swings and handed the baseball bat to the gangster from Philly. And so the beating continued, at 312 Park Ave., under the watchful eye of the boss, a talkative Chinese carryout owner from Timonium whom everyone called Ah Man.Their victim, Kenny Chung, was bloodied and blind, but he was still alive. As federal court documents describe, death came later, when Chung was driven along the Baltimore-Washington Parkway, when his unconscious body was dumped on a grassy embankment, when he was shot four times in the face so that it would take the authorities a year to figure out who he was.Chung was beaten and murdered on the Fourth of July 1993.

As the Fourth of July approaches, thoughts naturally turn to freedom, equality and, of course, grilling. Those all-American virtues converge with reports that a growing number of women are demanding their rightful place by the flames. Cookbooks and Web sites now are aimed at women who grill, based on the notion, says author Karen Brooks, "that women don't need a man to light their fire." In Dressed to Grill (Chronicle, 2002, $16.95), Brooks and Diane Morgan offer what may be the ultimate feminist grilling guide.
