I was reminded recently of John Alsop's campaign for governor of Connecticut more than 30 years ago. Alsop, a Republican businessman, is the surviving brother of a family that also included the Washington columnists Joseph and Stewart Alsop. Republicans in Connecticut who didn't like the Washington brothers used to refer to John as "the smart Alsop. " He was more widely known as "the funny Alsop. " As a campaigner, Alsop had a dry wit, and a delivery that owed something to W. C. Fields.

Bonnie Foehr credits her success to cream cheese and orange marmalade. The culinary-arts student at Middle Bucks Institute of Technology in Jamison won a $4,000 scholarship to the Culinary Institute of America for her apple pie creation. "My secret is the ingredients in the piecrust," Foehr said. "I use cream cheese as a substitute for butter, and that gives a creamy texture. Once it comes out of the oven, I wipe orange marmalade on the outside, which makes it shiny and gives it flavor.

At the beginning of Spike Lee's Malcolm X, shots of a burning American flag are interspersed with shots of the Rodney King video. It is a perfect metaphor for what some people think of this country. To drive home the point even further, we hear the title character giving a speech in which he thunders his pain and anger to other blacks. "You're not American. You are the victims of America. " Near the end of the film, Malcolm X is in Egypt, on his way to a pilgrimage at the holy Islamic city of Mecca.

Apple pie. Chocolate pudding. Caramel apples. Chocolate chip cookies. Those were the homemade treats that Michael Vandergeest grew up on, that made him the envy of the kids in his Narberth neighborhood. They were made by his stay-at-home mom, who loved baking all sorts of goodies as much as her five sons loved eating them. Today, it is Vandergeest's children who are the envy of their friends. As pastry chef at Tony Clark's, in Center City, Vandergeest whips up the desserts from his youth, although his mother would have a hard time recognizing her apple pie and chocolate pudding.

What it is: Goodnoe Family Restaurant in Newtown - incredible apple pie a la mode. What we like about it: Goodnoe's is a family restaurant celebrating 50 years of farm-fresh, made-on-the-premises ice cream and a full menu of pleasing down-home recipes. The restaurant's motto is "Eat dessert first" and the proof of this advice is in the freshly baked apple pie a la mode. The ice cream is made across the street in the family's dairy facility. Each wide wedge of pie contains juicy large apple slices, a smooth filling and rich crumb crust.

What to eat: It ain't rocket science: Cupcakes. South Jersey's first mobile cake manufacturer churns out the signature dessert with flavors both standard and special. Each gourmet cupcake - and they're sizable, not those miniature two-bite deals - will cost you $2.25. Save, as the saying goes, when you buy in bulk. A sixpack goes for $12. If cake isn't your bag, the truck also offers Philly favorite water ice during the summer. Don't miss: Special flavors such as apple pie (a vanilla cupcake stuffed with apple pie filling)

About halfway through the 10th annual Apple Festival bake-off yesterday, one of the judges already suspected she knew which, among 37 entries, would be the winner. The pies, cakes, muffins and assorted pastries were set out on three tables, placed in a horseshoe on the bank of a creek in Medford Township. Two judges stood inside the horseshoe, two outside facing them, as all sampled one item, then the next. A finger-numbing wind was slicing through the crowds and over the tables.

We hate to break the news to the Friends of Memorial Hall that their 1st Annual Philadelphia County Fair isn't a first. There was such a county fair from 1908 until 1925, on its very own fairgrounds in Byberry. The event ceased to be when the grounds were turned over to the Philadelphia State Hospital. But, since most of us weren't around for the last one, let's applaud the Friends for reviving it. Opening today and running through June 7, the fair has a new home - in and around Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park.

People do double-takes in two places: in bad movies, and at More Than Just Ice Cream. At the Pine Street dessert shop, ice cream sundaes fill fruit bowls, and cake slices fill dinner plates. And the apple pie . . . As the saying on the menu goes, You Got To See It To Believe It. David Banner saw it the other night, and he still didn't believe it. "It's the whole tree!" said the 19-year-old Rutgers sophomore, his eyes widening at the mountain of apple pie afloat in mounds of vanilla ice cream.

RICE-BRAN OIL Don't start swilling rice-bran oil. New research says it lowers the bad kind of blood cholesterol while slightly improving the good kind. But the study was a preliminary one of monkeys, and even if ultimately confirmed, it doesn't justify a health-food frenzy, says cooking-oils researcher Margo Denke. Step one of the American Heart Association's diet advice is to reduce fat, "so you shouldn't go out of your way to eat rice-bran oil or any other oil because, obviously, it is a fat," Denke says.

ACCORDING TO many statistics, about 75 percent of Americans are either trying to lose or maintain their weight. "Dieting" has become as American, shall we say, as apple pie. Now, with Thanksgiving behind us, many are surely feeling not only the post-Thanksgiving bloat around the waistline, but feeling guilty as well. Well, there's no need in crying over spilled milk; you enjoyed the holiday and now it's time to get back on track. Sure, you could go on another crazy diet and lose a few pounds quickly, but why not stop dieting and just change your diet permanently?

We were in search of pie for dessert for a big family dinner in Stone Harbor last week. And as it was still pre-Fourth of July, many of the shops were open only on weekends. Someone directed us to a bakery called the Painted Pie, and we found it, with the door ajar, but clearly not open for business. A baker emerged from the back, his bicycle in the middle of the shop. Could he recommend any place we could buy a pie for dessert? "None will be as good as mine," was his reply. "Well could you bake one by 6 o'clock?"

In autumn, when apples and pears are plentiful, one's first instinct might be to fold them into a pie or a turnover. But do not overlook the possibilities of working them into soups, salads, and meat dishes. Adding fruit to savory dishes might seem foreign to some cooks, but the practice isn't new. Thai chefs add pineapple to meat and rice dishes, the English drizzle gooseberry sauce on roasted pork, and the French, of course, have their duck a l'orange. The smell of baking apples wafting through a kitchen will warm anyone on a gusty fall day. The scent of baked pears may be less familiar, but I can assure you, it is no less inviting.

WASHINGTON - Visitors patrolling the aisles of the National Archives' best-attended show in years last week may have felt curiously at home, though the images on display - warnings about toxic candy, putrid tins of Chicago-packed meats, and ketchup bottles blowing their tops - were hardly soothing. This was the Archives' first "scented exhibit," said staffer Miriam Kleiman; subliminal notes of fresh-baked apple pie perfumed the air. The project is called "What's Cooking, Uncle Sam?"

Multiculturalism has completely failed. That's the assessment of Angela Merkel, chancellor of Germany, in a recent speech before the youth wing of her conservative political party, the Christian Democratic Union. The idea that disparate peoples can "simply live side by side and live happily with each other" has failed, she said. "Utterly failed. " Merkel insisted that Germany still welcomes immigrants, particularly those whose high-tech skills make them valuable workers. But she conditioned that welcome upon a warning: "We feel bound to the Christian image of humanity - that is what defines us. Those who do not accept this are in the wrong place here.

From: Fitzpatrick, Frank In a move that ought to surprise no one, the family of late Yankees owner George Steinbrenner dedicated a new monument for their father at Yankee Stadium. The behemoth memorial dwarfs those for Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle. Like father like sons. It is 7 feet high and 5 feet across and weighs 760 pounds. Sounds about right for the Boss, don't you think? Not quite big enough to accommodate the Steinbrenner ego. What is he, a pharaoh or something?

AFTER THE landmark Supreme Court ruling giving corporate America unlimited spending power for elections, I see big changes for our wonderful country that is so rich in morals, so compassionate, tolerant and truly cares about every citizen. Now we can totally revamp so many of the other traditions we've all grown tired of, like Mom, apple pie, and God bless America. So yesterday. How about CORPORATE Mom, CORPORATE apple pie and - wait for it - God bless CORPORATE America! Am I cynical?
