President Obama is sharing a traditional Thanksgiving feast -- including the choice of six different pies for dessert -- with family, friends and staff. The White House released the First Family's holiday menu Thursday: turkey, ham, cornbread stuffing, oyster stuffing, greens, macaroni and cheese, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and dinner rolls. For dessert: banana cream pie, pumpkin pie, apple pie, sweet potato pie, huckleberry pie and cherry pie. The "Let's Move" calorie burning begins Friday.

What's worth a pie in the face? Not too many things. But if it's to raise money to see a high school class graduate at the Hollywood Bowl? Worth it. Here, an instructor put his face in the way of danger to make sure his students graduate in style. Photographer Neil Fitzpatrick caught the moment after pie impact with his Nikon D50.

Just that morning, I'd used the last of the leaf lard I'd been adding to my galette or pie dough for extra tenderness when the words Mangalitsa and fatback jumped out to me from a little signboard at the Saturday Santa Monica Farmers Market . I stopped in front of what has to be one of the smallest stalls at the market, Peads & Barnetts. In fact, this was just its second week there. The name is that of one of Oliver Woolley's small pig farms in North San Diego County where he raises Mangalitsa, or Hungary's woolly pigs, a breed closely related to Europe's wild boars and prized for its thick layer of particularly tasty fat. He didn't have leaf lard, but he did have fatback in 2-pound packs at $3.50 a pound.

I WATCHED JUSTINE ACROSS THE STREET. I SEEN HER from the window. Even with Sheldon and Jeffrey asking for lunch, I seen clear enough to know she was up to her old tricks. I said to myself, that queen, she's up to it again. This time it was a boy, a black boy whose name I'd learn in a matter of hours. Justine wastes no time. But just then I pulled away from the window, in case the two little guys might see me looking. Kids have a way of telling things, after all. Nothing was unpacked.

I was talking to a half-dozen theater friends about the changes new Artistic Director Michael Ritchie has put in place at the Taper ["The Reviews Are Already Coming In," June 26]. This theater-savvy, L.A.-diverse klatch was worrying about the same threads that your panel of theater artists were, so I felt compelled to ask, "Do you remember the last time you really had to see something at the Taper?" That killed the conversation. We all had to think about that one for a few long minutes.

Re: "Wellpoint Profit Increases 64% From Year Earlier" (Feb. 11): This is the problem with the health-care delivery system: An insurance company, among the best performers in the managed-care industry, made $703.1 million in 2002. An ideal system would have no one between the patient and the provider (doctors, hospitals, etc.) taking a huge slice of the medical-care pie, $17.3 billion in 2002 revenue to be exact. A nonprofit single payer is the answer to this ridiculous arrangement.

I loved Kevin Phillips' comparison of the decline of the U.S. to that of Imperial Rome vis-a-vis our war-mongering excursions onto Grenada, Tripoli, Panama and the Gulf War ("Bush's Foreign Policy," Opinion, Jan. 12). Though to some this will undoubtedly sound pie in the sky, it is incontrovertible that any policy (whether that of a nation or an individual) that results in the murder of people is the road to life-negating zero, and guarantees disaster for us all.

I enjoyed your article on the Oak Glen apple orchards ("Core of Apple Country," Weekend Escape, Sept. 30). I have been visiting the orchards for the last 10 years and have always had a great time there. However, you missed a couple of things. One is a wonderful orchard called Wood Acres, run by Jim and Pat Woods. Their variety of apples is outstanding. The other is the delicious fresh apple pie from the bakery at Parrish Ranch.
