Everyone knows that if you're going out carousing on St. Patrick's Day, you need something substantial in your stomach - like, say, Conan O'Brien's St. Patrick's Day lamb stew, a recipe Good Housekeeping helpfully printed in this month's issue, alongside a picture of the late-night talk-show host. One problem: As O'Brien, appropriately adorned with a green tie, pointed out on Monday's show, "I've never cooked anything in my life. I didn't send it to them. They just made it up. It's got all this stuff in it I've never even heard of. " (Ah, the bane of parsnips.

The Donald has a new apprentice - but he won't be firing this one anytime soon.

"Everyone's perfect," Trump said in a telephone interview on MSNBC's Imus in the Morning. In a statement on her Web site, the new mom said the youngest Trump weighed in at 8 1/2 pounds and was 21 inches long.

What was it about the case that caught their eye? The plight of the widow, former Playboy model Anna Nicole Smith? The possibility of a made-for-cable reality series starring nine people in black robes? The Supreme Court said yesterday that it would hear the stripper-turned-TV-star's case concerning the $474 million fortune of her 90-year-old late husband, oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II. Smith, a self-described blond bombshell whose eccentricities and weight issues were the subject of a reality series, married Marshall in 1994 when he was 89 and she was 26. A ruling by a bankruptcy judge awarded the inheritance to Smith a decade ago. Her stepson, E. Pierce Marshall, has been fighting for the money in various courts ever since.

And now, a few words on behalf of adulterers. OK, not really. But on behalf, certainly, of their right to deal with their marital messes in something resembling privacy. Granted, when the affair in question involves a public figure like Jesse Jackson - or President Clinton or Meg Ryan or any of the other members of the revolving cast of bed-hopping characters who seem to populate Hollywood and Washington alike - privacy is a tall order.

Some years ago, when Jesse Jackson was running for president, and rumors of infidelity were suddenly being spoken aloud rather than whispered, his wife, Jackie, indignantly stepped forward.

Security Council in what U.S. Ambassador Richard Holbrooke had hoped would be an olive-branch session. Some olive branch! Besides finding the U.N. ungrateful, Helms added, "the American people . . . resent" what he called the U.N. General Assembly's anti-American bias and the U.N.'s intent "to impose its presumed authority on the American people without their consent.
