A translucent, animated condom filled with red candy hearts is an animated protagonist in Jordan Wolfson's marvelous video installation at REDCAT, the New York-based artist's solo debut in Los Angeles. Projected onto a white screen suspended on the diagonal in a white room carpeted in wall-to-wall white rug, the non-narrative video feels unmoored and adrift in a languorous state of liquid reverie. We soon float along with it. "Raspberry Poser" -- the title conjures Prince -- is in effect a 14 1/2-minute music video.

MY mom and I made the raspberry souffle recipe ["Flourless Raspberry Souffles," May 31] and it turned out amazing. It was fun and easy to make, and it tasted great too. It was light, fluffy and a pretty pink. CHLOE ABARBANEL, 10 (A future pastry chef) Santa Monica

Kim Nykanen of Claremont was one of the 10 winners of last year's Los Angeles Times Holiday Cookie Bake-Off with Ronnie's raspberry crescents: "This was always my and my five siblings' favorite Christmas cookie growing up. Since the recipe only makes 24 cookies, they were obviously a precious commodity! I've made it every year for at least the last 25 years. And my older sisters have too. I'll usually make a cookie sampler, just three or four types, but these are absolutely my husband's favorite cookie, and so for the last 20 years, even if I make no other cookies, I make these.

Raspberry shows just how confused one can become when one's own cultural perspective has been lost. Raspberry's comments, like those of many elitist conservatives, totally ignore the real reasons for the chronic academic underachievement of young black males. Raspberry says, "I doubt that substituting Chinua Achebe, James Baldwin or Mary Frances Berry for William Shakespeare, Nathaniel Hawthorne or the white authors of high-school history texts would significantly raise the relative academic performance of black boys."

Planning a graduation dinner party? Turkey Framboise is an elegant dish to serve to guests. It starts with a well-loved food, turkey, quickly sauteed in butter and then topped with raspberry liqueur for a quick, company meal. Cream and raspberry jam are added to the skillet drippings to make a sweet sauce that gives the poultry distinction. Serve this elegant dish with fresh steamed asparagus and new potatoes. TURKEY FRAMBOISE 4 turkey fillets, about 1 1/4 pounds Salt, pepper 3 tablespoons butter or margarine 2 tablespoons raspberry liqueur 1/2 cup whipping cream or half and half 1 tablespoon raspberry jam 1/3 cup raspberries Season turkey to taste with salt and pepper.

I was saddened by Raspberry's commentary. My immediate reaction is that the letting down is just the other way around. Raspberry, even while claiming to be an admirer, has shown that at the first sign of accusation of wrongdoing he is willing to join the ranks of the accusers, taking whatever has been said as truth. Admirers like that are not themselves to be admired but must be pitied as being small men of little consequence. No matter how many so-called scholars of the stature, or maybe ilk, of Claybourne Carson, claiming to be "committed admirers of King," come forth with vile charges of plagiarism, I for one, and I think I am not alone, will not relinquish my faith and love for a very great American.

Re William Raspberry's column, "Naysayers Aside, Blacks Are Making Progress," Aug. 7: I wish I could join Raspberry in celebrating the 3% increase in African American college students during 1985-95. Sadly, my 1969-98 experience on the faculties of UCLA, USC and three Cal State campuses is consistent with authoritative nationwide observations that much of today's college instruction has been reduced to the level of yesterday's high schools and further devalued by grade inflation.

I enjoyed William Raspberry's metaphor of people living in their ethnic islands until they decide to leave them and join the mainland or become "Americanized" (Commentary, July 4). But I am left puzzled as to why he believes it is up to "white people to answer" the question if blacks can become "Americanized." Who are these white individuals or groups that he believes hold this enormous power to decide who can become "'Americanized"? There is no group of people that holds this power, only individuals who must decide where in life they want to place themselves.

Is it raspberries in liquid form -- or something a little more? The first sip is unbelievably plush, an overload of raspberry flavor. Only a few minutes later do you realize it really is a wine, and a strong one: 16% alcohol. (Tough luck for kids.) Try it over ice cream or chocolate cake, add a splash to Champagne, invent a cocktail; the possibilities are endless. -- Charles Perry Trader Joe's Raspberry Wine, 375 ml bottle, $7.99, at Trader Joe's markets.

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt wants to help Britain get its computer science curriculum in order, and he thinks that the $35 Raspberry Pi computer can help. "The success of the BBC Micro in the 1980s shows what's possible," Schmidt said Wednesday during a talk at London's Science Museum called "Why Science Matters. " "There's no reason why Raspberry Pi shouldn't have the same impact, with the right support. " Schmidt's shout-out to the bare-bones computer that is about the size of a credit card, and the price of a textbook, came right after he announced that Google would be sponsoring the charity Teach First in a project to take more than 100 "exceptional" graduates in the computer science field and prepare them to teach in secondary schools.

Until recently, very few people had ever heard of raspberry ketones, the aromatic compounds that give the berries their distinctive smell. Today, health food stores have trouble keeping the capsules or drops of the stuff on their shelves. Almost overnight, an obscure plant compound became the next big thing in weight loss - and all it took was a few words from Dr. Oz. In a February episode of "The Dr. Oz Show," Mehmet Oz told viewers that raspberry ketones were "the No. 1 miracle in a bottle to burn your fat. " Once Oz calls something a "miracle," it doesn't remain obscure for long.

The much hyped and eagerly awaited Raspberry Pi -- a $35 computer the size of a credit card -- is finally moving out of the testing room and into consumers' hands. If you were one of the lucky 10,000 people who were able to pre-order the first run of the Raspberry Pi back in March, you should be receiving your mini-computer by April 20. And by mini, we mean miniature and stripped down. The Raspberry Pi computer is built around the ARM chip that is used in most mobile phones.

The Raspberry Pi, a $35 computer about the size of a credit card, made headlines last week when all the 10,000 units available for pre-order were snatched up just minutes after they went on sale. Even after the units had sold out, international interest in the computer was so rabid that the websites of the two retailers authorized to sell it — Premier Farnell and RS Components Ltd. — crashed under the weight of the traffic. "We weren't surprised by the enthusiastic reaction," said Eben Upton, executive director of the Raspberry Pi Foundation in Britain.

"I started making these six or seven years ago. I saw a recipe that was something like it and just extrapolated a little bit. I fix them mostly just for the holidays, but my beautiful daughters do love them, and I go with what they love. When you find something that works, you stick with it.
