As a chef, my favorite tuna has always been the yellowfin packed in olive oil because of its taste and meaty texture. But I now realize that, as a consumer, it is so much more complicated than just good taste. All the tunas on this list are good tasting, but are also high in omega-3s, contain no additives, and were all fished in American or Asian waters, where fishing methods yield a catch with lower mercury levels. American Tuna Pole Caught Wild Albacore was judged the best overall because of its taste, rich natural oils, low mercury, superior texture, high omega-3s, and because it is cooked only once in the can. It also contains no additives and is caught and packed by fishing families in the mainland United States.

BILL PARCELLS used to teasingly refer to Sean Payton as "Dennis the Menace. " There's no telling what Parcells might call his former assistant now. Payton outsmarted his old boss early, then had some fun at his expense with an onside kick later, once the New Orleans Saints were well on their way to a 42-17 victory over host Dallas last night. Having spent the last 3 years on Parcells' staff, Payton knew exactly how to attack the Cowboys - and Drew Brees pulled it off perfectly, tying his career high with five touchdown passes, all before the third quarter ended.

Backyard cookouts are part of the July Fourth tradition. But by July 5 or 6, burger and dog lovers might be ready to grill something new. Dave and Amy Rihl, owners of the Hula Grill on the Ocean City boardwalk, suggest trying fresh yellowfin (or Ahi) tuna steaks, which are inspired by the abundant seafood and Asian-influenced cuisine of Hawaii's North Shore. The recipe calls for ingredients easily found in Asian markets and specialty grocery stores and makes four sandwiches.

Heart-healthy food is hiding in your cabinet. We're talking about canned fish - tuna, of course, but don't forget convenient salmon-in-a-can. It can stand in for the far pricier fresh or frozen version in combinations and casseroles, with no nutritional loss. And salmon instead of tuna can add variety to those lunchtime sandwich spreads. Both tuna and salmon are good sources of omega-3 fatty acids, those wonderful substances that make fish oils so good for your cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

For Mayor Goode, a 51-year-old workaholic who rarely strolls, but races when he walks, Thursday was one of those stressful days that wouldn't end. Several hours after Goode listened to top city officials vent their anger at him and each other during a 10-hour gripe session, he was rushed to the hospital with head and neck pain, a racing heart beat and soaring blood pressure. After a battery of tests, Dr. Arthur Whereat, a cardiologist at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, said Goode is not seriously ill and did not have a heart attack or heart problems.

Pressed to recall when it was that he first started worrying about tuna nets and dolphin slaughter, Scott Hall raised his eyebrows and said, "MTV. " MTV, the cable channel where teenagers tune in to Madonna the vamp, Aerosmith the androgynous and Guns N' Roses the outlaws, also has a show about the environment. The new generation, explained Hall, is less egocentric than the last. In the meantime, a new medium has matured with a degree of social conscience. This is how reform movements are born.

ABOARD THE STEVE IRWIN - Tuna fishermen battled environmentalists on the Mediterranean, hurling heavy links of chain at them as the environmentalists tried to disrupt illegal tuna fishing under the no-fly zone north of Libya on Saturday. The fishermen also tried to lay a rope in front of the activists' boat, the Steve Irwin - owned by the U.S. group the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society - hoping to disable it. Environmentalists responded with fire hoses and stink bombs. Several hundred feet above the fray circled a French fighter jet summoned by the fishermen, who claimed, falsely, that activist divers were trying to cut their net. The 195-foot Steve Irwin, named after the Australian conservationist who died in 2006, left the Sicilian port of Syracuse early Friday, heading for a rendezvous with a smaller, faster sister ship, the Brigitte Bardot, just north of Libyan waters.

'Plain Talk About Canned Tuna: A Safe & Healthy Food for Everyone. " That's the claim of a full-page advertisement that has begun appearing in newspapers and magazines, placed by (you guessed it) the U.S. Tuna Foundation. "America learned this week that tuna, and many other fish, can contain harmful levels of toxic mercury," says a competing ad, placed by the Natural Resources Defense Council and MoveOn.org, an activist group. Who's right? What's a consumer to do? Many people are responding with what they believe is the "safe" choice: Passing on the tuna melt, retiring the tuna casserole, opting for turkey on rye. Just as some health-conscious consumers have culled beef and farm-raised salmon from their grocery lists because of mad-cow and cancer fears, they're dropping tuna because of warnings over mercury levels.

Tuna, Texas, is the locale of a trilogy of plays from a trilogy of writers: Joe Sears, Jaston Williams, and Ed Howard. Opening the Walnut's Independence Studio season for the third year with a "Tuna" holiday show, this latest entry, Red, White and Tuna, following two hilarious hits, is a definite miss. "This place has gone from mean to meaner," says one resident, and he's right. Of course, these rednecks were always mean as well as bizarre, but they seemed, in their eccentricities and loyalties and feuds and intrigues and romances, somehow also lovable and endearing.
