BY CALLING the patients at Trenton state psychiatric facility "nuts," the editor at the Trentonian relegated those people as something less than human, as something that fell out of trees. I am appalled by his use of the term "nuts," and I cannot help but think of other times in history when similar words were used to produce more devastating effects on people who were not considered human. I ask the editor of the Trentonian who wrote the story to continue to review his position about the fire at Trenton State Psychiatric, relegating patients to nuts and think hard how his statement distorted the perception of hundreds of people who only wished to be accepted in a multi-faceted world, filled with both good and evil at a time when compassion is the benchmark of human endeavor.

LINDA Diggs-Turner wrote that she wants to bring back the draft. I bet she doesn't have a son near draft age. Well, I do! The war in Iraq has nothing to do with what happened on 9/11. I won't let anyone take my son to war just because George Bush had a grudge against Saddam! And I'm a lifelong Republican. Robert Patrick McNulty Philadelphia

Of course you can't stop eating them - that's why nuts belong in a safe, or at least a safe place! The safest place to keep them? In the freezer. Not even the nuttiest nut-ophiles are likely to risk their dental work on frozen nuts. The freezer keeps the fresh flavor of nuts safe, too. It's the ideal place to keep rarely used, oil-rich ingredients. Once opened, a package of nuts will turn rancid and bitter if left at room temperature for a long period of time. Which brings us to the next question: What's a Slim Gourmet cook doing with nuts in the first place?

Q. What nuts contain caffeine? Joyce Williams Laureldale, Pa. A. The nuts that we are most familiar with in North America, such as peanuts, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, etc., contain no caffeine. Although there are more than 63 species of plants growing in all parts of the world which contain caffeine in their leaves, seeds or fruit, most of us have only come in contact with three of them - cacao beans, coffee beans and tea leaves. One nut that is popular in certain parts of the world, particularly Africa, is the kola nut, which is chewed because of its stimulating properties.

On its surface, Nuts is a supercharged courtroom drama about a Park Avenue prostitute and her fight to be declared mentally competent after she has killed a jet-set john. Probe deeper, which Martin Ritt's stunning achievement does, and it's an excavation of the buried traumas of an American family - an excavation by dynamite, courtesy of explosive performances by Barbra Streisand as the hooker and Richard Dreyfuss as her legal-aid lawyer. They hit you smack in the solar plexus.

Nutrition issues are rarely black or white. In fact, it's the gray areas that tend to make us all scratch our heads. People constantly ask, "Is this a good food?" or "Should I eat this food?" expecting a simple yes or no. Sorry, folks, it's just not that easy. It is challenging, though. Take nuts and seeds, for instance. Nuts and seeds are great sources of protein. And they can be helpful in creating high-quality protein when combined with grains and legumes. But they contain far more fat than protein, which puts them in the "use sparingly" category.

Reading the Aug. 3 Family/Home/Fashion section article "Sweating out summer in a business suit," I was struck by a paradox: To wear such a costume in the heat is to behave in a manner inconsistent with the attributes one expects a competent business person to possess. A good manager should display practicality, common sense and sound judgment, right? Looking at it logically, it would seem that any man who would choose to wear a jacket, tie and long-sleeve shirt when it's 92 degrees in the shade with humidity to match belongs in Byberry, not the boardroom.

"I did it," Slats Grobnik said triumphantly. "I got through the whole thing without knowing what's going on. " You got through what thing? "This creep Jeffrey Dahmer in Milwaukee. The trial's over now. He's going to prison. He's going to disappear from the newspapers and the TV, and I got through it all without reading one word about him. " Not even one word? "Only the headlines. I had to look at the headlines so I'd know what I wasn't going to read. And when I watched the news, I sat there with the zapper in my hand.

For a while now, I've suspected a trend when friends of a certain age pulled bags of almonds from their purses to eat for lunch or snacks. But I really knew something was up with the nut when, this past summer, I saw teenagers munching almonds before competing in swim meets. My daughter informed me word had spread on the team that almonds are a far better source of energy for athletes than salt- or sugar-loaded snacks, including those billed as "energy bars. " You know something's hot when a teenager eats it instead of potato chips or chocolate.

I AM A "GUN NUT. " Why? Because I own more than one. I know that's what some of you think, because you have told me so, usually behind a screen name. I also have been told I must have a small penis and I am a coward. (Because I am "afraid" to be defenseless?) I'm not saying every gun hater has said it, but many have, and the undeniable hysteria on their part doesn't help their cause. I am not a member of the NRA, which doesn't speak for me. It doesn't even speak for a majority of its members when it comes to background checks.

Andre Boyer, a former Philadelphia police officer who says he was fired for being a whistleblower, is trying to raise money online to investigate police corruption and cover his resulting, mounting legal expenses. His GoFundMe campaign, the "Dirty Corrupt Philly Cops Fund," is not exactly going gangbusters. In 20 days, only two people have donated $35 toward Boyer's $10,000 goal. Boyer is a 17-year veteran of the police department who lost his job in 2013 over allegations that he mishandled $6,000 during an arrest.

DEAR ABBY: I live in Israel, and for the past five years I've been having an affair with a great guy I'll call Yuri. I married very young to a man who is kind and very Orthodox. I love my children and grandchildren. Yuri thinks we should leave our spouses and make a fresh start. (I'm not Orthodox and neither is he.) I am afraid if I do, I may lose my children and grandchildren. On the other hand, I can't survive without Yuri. I have always had lovers since I discovered how Orthodox my husband is - it's a survival thing.

The CW's new musical dramedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has me stumped. I don't know what to make of the series that stars Robot Chicken writer and voice actor Rachel Bloom as a love-sick lawyer so hung up on her first boyfriend, a guy she dated for only two months as a teenager, that she turns her life upside down a decade later to be near him. Cocreated and cowritten by Bloom and Aline Brosh McKenna, who wrote last year's big-screen adaptation...

Mark Tully spent the winter of 1969 trying to concoct a new drink. It didn't go perfectly. "Now, I'm not a drinker, even though I have this bar," says Tully, owner of #1 Tavern in North Wildwood. "I do drink, but I'm not a heavy drinker. So what I would do is, I would be testing and testing all day. And my wife would call me up from downstairs and say we were ready for dinner. And sometimes I would come up and I would be a little plastered. " It all worked out. The Super Tully Nut, a five-liquor blend with a recipe known only to the inventor himself, has become a Jersey Shore tradition in the 47 years since its introduction.

THANKS to hipster vegans, almond milk is suddenly a thing: Almonds, a "thirsty crop," are draining California's water and increasing the drought, all for a product that's only 2 percent nuts. Right? Hang on: Actually, almond milk was a thing back in the middle ages, used widely because it didn't spoil as quickly as cow's milk, and because for many, almonds were easier to get than cows. And the $900 million spent on almond milk last year, making it the declining dairy industry's top competitor, came from a much larger crowd than vegans and/or hipsters.
