In 1979 we dramatized the dilemma of 19th century women, especially women writers, through a discussion of "Snow White. " There was a good Queen who pricked her finger with a needle, watched blood fall on snow, gave birth to a girl, died and was replaced by a wicked Queen, who became stepmother to Snow White. When a mother figure becomes self-assertive in a society that discourages independence, we suggested in our analysis of the story, it is as if the good mother dies and is replaced by a wicked stepmother.

Elizabeth II enjoyed the Kentucky Derby, but the real queen of England was at the Electric Factory on Saturday night. Her name is Amy Winehouse, and she is nothing short of a nouveau soul sensation. Her breakthrough album, Back To Black, with its clever postmodern amalgam of '60s soul, Motown and Spectorian girl groups, is currently blowing up in all formats. Before the show, the sold-out crowd at the Electric Factory just kept their fingers crossed that Winehouse would show - Fleet Street, in its inimitable tradition of creating media icons and then destroying them, currently is painting Winehouse as boozy and unstable - but she not only showed up, she showed plenty.

When the character of Amanda Cory reappears on "Another World" the week of July 27, she won't be recognizable to the show's longtime audience. "Little" Amanda (she was about 9 when she disappeared from the small screen) is now "big" Amanda, who will be returning home from boarding school. Portraying Amanda is daytime newcomer Sandi Ferguson. Although Ferguson is new to soaps, and this is her first recurring acting role, she's used to performing in front of an audience. You see, she was named Miss Western Pennsylvania and participated in the 1984 Miss Teen U.S.A.

President Bush took the queen of England out to the ballgame here last night. The Memorial Stadium fairly swayed in excitement. The bare spots on the field were gone. The chalking of the diamond was perfect. The sun seemed to hang in the evening sky a little longer. Tony LaRussa, the manager of the Oakland Athletics, said before the game: "I think everybody is aware that there will be two couples here tonight who are different from the rest of us. " In her first look at the national pastime, the queen met the players before the game and then took a seat in an upper-deck box enclosed in bulletproof glass.

It is 11 a.m., the crack of dawn for royalty, but the Queen of Soul has already ascended her throne. She's powdered, ponytailed, and poised to meet her subjects. In the world of pop music, the word diva is tossed around like a chewed-up Frisbee, and icon is as played-out as a Madonna makeover. However, there is but one queen, and it's not Mary J. Blige. "I really don't see the similarity," Aretha Franklin replies dismissively when asked to compare her style with that of Blige, known as the Queen of Hip-Hop.

I never thought I'd say this . . . but here goes. I miss Meg Ryan. Especially this time of year, when soggy romantic comedies starring the likes of Mandy Moore (!) remind us that since Ryan abdicated her throne with 2001's Kate & Leopold, no actress has come along to make Valentine's Day movie-going safe again. Say what you will about Ryan's twinkly persona, but nobody this side of Doris Day had a longer run as a romantic-comedy queen. And the movies she made - even the misfires - were at least fun. I'd gladly catch Ryan - playing three women, no less - in Joe Versus the Volcano again before watching Sandra Bullock trot out one of her wounded lonely-hearts or enduring an endless string of Renee Zellweger scrunchy faces.

I am holding in my hand one of the new five-pound notes the British have just issued to replace the old model. The queen, tightly curled and rampantly tiara-ed on a field of pinkish blue, has been updated from her 1962 persona. "It makes one look so old," Her Majesty is reported to have said. Indeed. There is the double chin, the fleshy fold around the jaw, the line from nose to mouth, the crinkle under the eye. There is the look of a woman past middle age, the girl gone deep inside the sagging flesh with only the eyes to signal that she is still within.

Leona Helmsley has been given another 150 hours of community service by a Manhattan federal judge who found that she had her employees do some of her original 750 hours, ordered for her 1989 tax evasion conviction. A lawyer for the "Queen of Mean" said that she tried to do the hours "in good faith" at a Scottsdale, Ariz., hospital but that it became impossible because hospital staff "gawked at her" and were "less than charitable. " The judge found that it was when she was allowed to do tasks at her home that she "did obtain the help of household employees.

The actress Eleanor Powell wasn't the only "Queen of Taps. " In the 1950s and '60s, when Wildwood's star power lit up summer Shore nights, a raven-haired hoofer also billed as the "Queen of Taps" pattered across the resort's most coveted stages. While headliners girded themselves for showtime, Maryellen C. Baldwin - then known as Mary Landy - warmed up patrons of such hot spots as Lou Booth's Club 18, Club Avalon, and the Manor Supper Club with full-tilt tapping. She was known for her fiery rendition of "Hawaiian War Chant," for which the 5-foot-8 beauty donned a flowered red sarong.

Peach ice cream - fresh-dipped and fabulous - will be featured at the 2016 Gloucester County 4-H Fair this year. But there won't be a Peach Bake-Off, or a Little Miss Peach competition. And a 2016 Peach Queen will not be crowned, either. The all-volunteer New Jersey Peach Festival, a popular component of the fair for decades, has called it quits in the wake of a spring freeze that appears to have destroyed 25 percent of the fruit. Growers and promoters of one of South Jersey's most beloved crops insist that a solid supply of luscious peaches is ripening as we speak.

It was hard for me to watch the first episode of USA's Queen of the South and not think of what Donald Trump might say about Teresa Mendoza. Queen is adapted from Arturo Pérez-Reverte's novel La Reina Del Sur , whose 2011 telenovela version broke ratings records for Telemundo. Premiering Thursday, it's the story of Teresa (Alice Braga, I Am Legend ), and her rise from humble Mexican roots to riches on the U.S. side of the very border on which Trump has proposed to build a wall.

The final hours for Kiersten Rickenbach Cerveny, a former America's Junior Miss scholarship winner from South Jersey, began when she left a New York City bar in the wee hours last Oct. 4 with HBO producer Marc Johnson, who had offered her cocaine, authorities said. A cab brought them to a building on West 16th Street in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, where Johnson's longtime friend - and alleged drug dealer - James Holder lived in a third-floor unit, federal authorities said. It was in this building that emergency responders later found Cerveny, a 38-year-old dermatologist and married mother of three young children, unconscious in the first-floor doorway.

It is difficult to visit the home of Margaret Meigs and Paul Laskow without recognizing their passion for the Schuylkill and sharing their concern for the river's future. The couple's 2,000-square-foot condominium in Queen Village seems to be dedicated to promoting the Schuylkill even though Philadelphia's western waterway is about two miles west of their new home. Their thoughts are never far from the river. Not only do the couple get up at 5 a.m. each day to row on the Schuylkill, but their aqua living-room rug was custom-designed to show the patterns of the river with its bends and borders housing the boathouses.

FOLSOM, Calif. - Every morning, Lynda Trujillo greets her "girls. " They reward her with friendly clucks - and lots of eggs. The eggs come compliments of Trujillo's six busy hens, who rule the roost in luxury. Nestled in a hillside overlooking the American River, Trujillo's garden offers breathtaking views of the canyon as well as a first-class coop. Wrapping around the ranch-style home, a mosaic-lined path winds through big trees and past secret fairy gardens and whimsical sculpture.

IT'S ONE OF the many inequities in our society: Women get paid 79 percent of what men make, but, especially in TV and R-rated movies, they have to remove 100 percent of their clothes. (Ironically, in porn, the more allegedly exploitative the entertainment, the women get paid more than the men.) On The Late Show with James Corden , the issue was raised again Monday night when Game of Thrones Queen of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen (non-blonde Emilia Clarke ) noted that while viewers have seen her naked, the same can't be said of her male co-stars.

T he "butcher and his fiend-like queen" stalk the boards again in this thrilling and savage production of Macbeth at the Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre. Director Carmen Khan has wisely cast for voices: This is a cast with perfect diction and powerful resonance. The actors speak the lines as if it were their native tongue; Kahn knows that the drama is in language, and they deliver it. The plot is a study in ruthless ambition, showing us that "ruthless" means, literally, without pity.

And, yes, it meant a whole new way of life.

Is there such a thing anymore as a great cocktail under $10? In this era of baroque mixology, house tinctures, and high-end cult-booze mixers, the value drink has indeed become an endangered species. But keeping prices unnaturally fair has been one of the founding principles behind Buckminster's, where owner Michael Pasquarello is keenly aware of his restaurant's trailblazer status in the sub-Washington Avenue zone of Point Breeze. So manager Rich Maiale was tasked with creating a drink list to maximize value, and one of his best - the McQueen - rings in at $7.50.
