No need for booze: Disappointed devotees of the losing San Francisco 49ers can drown their Super Bowl sorrows in free Jell-O Pudding. The Kraft brand said it will send thousands of cups gratis to the city by the bay on Tuesday to help soothe distraught football fans. Drop sites are posted on the Jell-O Pudding Drop's website . The treats will be available around the city at locations such as Chinatown and Lombard Street at various times throughout the day. “Nothing masks the bitter taste of defeat like the sweet taste of Jell-O,” a spokesman says in a YouTube video posted Sunday night.

All Latter-day Saints should be thought of as "free-thinking Mormons" ("Judgment at Salt Lake," by David Wharton, Nov. 25). Anyone who earnestly studies the faith will recognize that its morality is considered one of our most cherished blessings. There are plenty of artistic, colorful, interesting Mormons in Salt Lake. What a letdown to see yet another article in which Mormon culture is sold short and upstaged by Jell-O consumption statistics. Losaida Galvan Granada Hills

Chick Hearn has so many unique phrases, they're called "Chickisms." Here are some of the best-known ones: "You can put this one in the refrigerator. The door's closed, the lights are out, the eggs are cooling, the butter's getting hard and the Jell-O is jiggling." Translation: The game has been decided. "Slam dunk" Translation: A shot that is thrust down hard into the basket. "Airball" Translation: A shot that misses the rim. "Word's-eye view" Translation: Hearn's description of his radio call.

Urged on by mothers tired of cleaning up behind ham-fisted slurpers, the maker of the two-stick Popsicle has decided to phase out the product in grocery stores--80% of its market--and replace the frozen treat with a more manageable single stick. Twin-stick Popsicles, which in recent years have faced stiffer competition from new fruit-based ice bars from Jell-O and Dole, will continue to be sold individually at convenience stores, amusement parks and sidewalk pushcarts, company officials said.

Clifton's Brookdale cafeteria, a downtown Los Angeles landmark dating to the Great Depression, will be sold this week to a local developer who vows to preserve its comfort-food menu and kitschy charms. The sale of a 40-year lease to the building at Broadway and 7th Street marks the end of family operations of Clifton's cafeterias in Los Angeles dating to 1931. Developer and nightclub operator Andrew Meieran is expected to take over Wednesday. Terms of the lease were not disclosed, but Meieran will have full control of the four-story building and the cafeteria that has fed generations of Angelenos.

Poor gelatin! It's made from bones, and knowing that, we can't quite love it. Not to mention the fact that its most common manifestation is as an artificially flavored, luridly colored vehicle for sugar. Jiggly, viscous, unaccountably echoing something physiological (what, exactly, we can't quite say), gelatin, especially in its non-dessert forms, repels as ardently as it attracts.

Inside each one of those identical plastic boxes, with its Dodge parked out front and its white bread on the table, with its TV set glowing blue in the falling dusk, there were people with stories, there were families bound together in the pain and the struggle, there were moments that made us cry with laughter, and there were moments . . . of sorrow and wonder.

BOSTON -- The other day Kobe Bryant was saying he just "missed some bunnies" in the first game of the NBA Finals, or as Chick Hearn would've been telling us, "Marge could have made those shots." It doesn't seem so long ago, but it will be six years this week, Chick doing his final Lakers broadcast after 42 years behind the microphone, a championship-clinching victory over the New Jersey Nets. Two months later a fall in his backyard led to his death.

A year after Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) became speaker of the House, the legislative landscape has not changed all that much because many of her most ambitious goals -- winding down the war in Iraq and rolling back key provisions of President Bush's tax cuts -- have not been met.

Food stylists are equal parts artist, architect, chef, construction foreman and chemist. One Wednesday in 2004, New York-based stylist Marilinda Hodgdon was working on product shots for Kraft Foods' Jell-O with photographer Brian Hagiwara. Hodgdon had done graduate work in metal and ceramic sculpture at Cal State Fullerton, and Hagiwara studied painting and sculpture at UCLA. When the contract work was done, they got more creative.

Traces of alcohol were detected in the suspected "Jell-O shots" taken to school by a fourth-grader, but it could have been the result of natural fermentation, a school official said. The 8-year-old girl from suburban New Orleans took the gelatin to school in small containers similar to those used by bars that serve liquor-spiked Jell-O. The girl's mother, Adrienne Noble, has insisted that the gelatin never contained alcohol. The girl was suspended for nine days.

A fourth-grade girl may return to school today, having completed a nine-day suspension for bringing to school what appeared to be about 30 "Jell-O shots," school officials said. Neither a sheriff's spokesman nor school officials would divulge if the gelatin cups contained alcohol. School officials said testing results were private because they're in the child's disciplinary record.

Jell-O makes me think of the clock in my mother's bright yellow kitchen. I used to stare at that flat round face and try to make sense of the jumble of numbers and hands. Counting wasn't the problem. I knew that Jell-O needed to be stirred for two minutes--that was 60 plus 60. And the 6 on the clock was easy. When the little hand landed there it was dinner time. But how that circle added up to time for school and bed was beyond me. As were lima beans.

Antonin Care^me, the early 19th century founder of la grande cuisine, often used gelatin to stabilize elements in his elaborate feasts for the eye. He was particularly aspic-oriented when it came to serving meat and fish. He also made molded gelatin desserts such as gelee au cafe moka, flavored with strong coffee and kirsch. Another was gelee a la vanille, flavored with vanilla extract and kirsch; you could add a little pink food coloring to it for fun.

An 8-year-old girl was suspended for nine days for bringing to school what appeared to be about 30 "Jell-O shots" -- though it was unclear whether they contained alcohol, officials said Tuesday. The incident occurred Nov. 29, as the girl stood outside after classes at Geraldine Boudreaux Elementary School in Terrytown, a New Orleans suburb.

There was no way in which either the Juan Carlos Quintero Quintet or its audience were going to pay much attention to music Friday night until the Lakers had concluded their comeback against the San Antonio Spurs. But as soon as the Conga Room's big-screen television displayed the game's final moments, the rhythms kicked into gear and an enthusiastic audience -- clearly buoyed by the victory -- took the floor, ready to move to the music.
