I was a dad, too much time on my hands was a dangerous thing. Now when I pull the plug, it’s all about my [almost 5-year-old] daughter, not about me. Whatever she likes doing is what we’re doing.

Manner Up! Modern etiquette made easy

Q: My next-door neighbor has a habit of dropping by my house unannounced—and staying! I like her, but I find this behavior pretty intrusive. How can I let her know without offending her?

Don’t leave your shiny surfaces to fend for themselves.

ILLUSTRATION: GRAFILU

—Name withheld, St. Paul, Minn.

A: Since you really can’t tell your neighbor not to come over without hurting her feelings, it’s time for a little white lie. Tell her there’s a lot going on at your house that you haven’t been able to get to—helping the kids with homework, going over the household budget with your husband, planning a family trip, and whatever else you can dream up. Say that unfortunately, you have to forgo certain pleasures that distract you from getting it all done. Pleasures like her company. Boy, do you love to see her! But can she just call first? Because right now you feel panicky about all the stuff on your plate. If she continues to drop by, say, “Oh, gosh, I have to do X. Let me call you when I’m finished, okay?” Then you can call or not, but at least you’ve established some guidelines. —Judith Newman

America’s appetite for pizza is stupendous. Every day we eat 100 acres of it—some 3 billion pies per year (with pepperoni the most popular topping). How did we get here? The story is nearly as old as the New World. white mozzarella. When the queen told Esposito how much she liked it, he named the combo for her. Today, pizza Margherita is known around the world.

Coming to America A few years later, in 1897, Gennaro Lombardi opened a grocery store and bakery on Spring Street in New York’s Little Italy. To make the most of the oven’s heat after the morning loaves were done, he baked flattened bread dough topped with crushed tomatoes and sold each pie for five cents. They were such a hit that in 1905 Lombardi opened America’s first licensed pizzeria. Like Lombardi’s, many of the old-time pizzerias that still thrive in the Northeast started the same way, as

The Pie’s Humble Origins Although humans’ appetite for yummy, hot flatbread dates back at least 12,000 years, pizza didn’t start taking shape until Spanish explorers brought tomatoes from the Americas to Europe. At first, chefs worried that the exotic red fruits were poisonous—and prudes thought them sinful because their flesh felt human. But cooks in southern Italy weren’t so timid. They figured out that squashing a few ripe ones on flatbread before baking made something wonderful. Pizza got a big boost in 1889 when Neapolitan baker Raffaele Esposito presented Queen Margherita of Italy with a pie in the colors of the Italian flag: red tomatoes with green basil and

AMERICA’S BEST SLICES Like barbecue, pizza has multiple personalities. Some of the country’s best pies (like the legendary white clam pizza at Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana in New Haven, Conn.) barely resemble the basic tomatoand-cheese combo. At the Portland Pie Company in Portland, Maine, you can indulge in lobster pizza; at Big Lou’s in San Antonio, you can try barbecued brisket as a topping. Those who grew up with thin-crust slices on the Atlantic City Boardwalk might not even recognize Chicago’s deep-dish variety! Of the countless pizza styles, a few stand out as American classics. Here are PARADE’s top five (as well as their foremost practitioners); see page 10 for an honor roll of great pizza places across the country.

Old Forge

Ea Eateries in and around this suburb a of Scranton, Pa., o specialize in pies that sport a thick crust topped with red sauce and mild cheese. Two to try: Salerno’s Cafe in Old Forge, Pa.; Victory Pig in Wyoming, Pa.

Northeast

Southern New England, New York, and New Jersey host some of the country’s most beloved pizzerias, known for pies with a Neapolitan flavor: thin crust with a puffy collar and oven-charred zest. Three to try: The original Patsy’s in New York City’s East Harlem; Carminuccio’s in Newtown, Conn.; DeLorenzo’s in Trenton, N.J.

St. Louis

Thin crust and creamy provell cheese h ((a blend bl d off cheddar, h dd S Swiss, i and provolone) define this city’s signature pizza; it’s portioned out in small, square cuts that fit in one hand—so you can hold a schooner of beer in the other. Two to try: Rigazzi’s in the Hill neighborhood; Riley’s Pub in the Tower Grove East neighborhood.

Roseland restaurant, which opened as a bakery in Derby, Conn., in 1935, became a pizza parlor when World War II gas rationing made delivering bread impossible. Prior to the war, most Americans hadn’t even heard of pizza. It was foreign food, a novelty dish found only in Italian neighborhoods. Even at Roseland, which catered to an Italian-American clientele, pizza was a bit mysterious at first. Lina Scatolini Lucarelli, whose father, John Scatolini, cofounded the eatery and whose children now help run it, remembers that when they started serving

Franchises and Freezers Pizza entered the mainstream in the late ’40s. Americans were taking an interest in exotic food of all kinds, and soldiers who’d been to Italy came back with a taste for what they had seen and sampled. By 1953, pizza had become familiar enough that Dean Martin scored a big hit with his song “That’s Amore,” featuring the line “When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore.” In 1954, Sherwood “Shakey”

rec-room feast in front of the TV. Frozen pizza first appeared in grocery stores in the 1950s, but it hit its stride in 1962, when Rose Totino branched out from her successful Minneapolis pizzeria to make fully dressed frozen pies that could be heated up and served in a hurry. Suddenly, pizza became the most convenient one-dish meal imaginable. The growth of home delivery, which put Domino’s on the map, made it even more so.

Truffle Oil, Anyone? Starting in the 1970s, American pizza was reborn, as the once humble ethnic fare morphed into a culinary sensation. The rise in status began in Berkeley, Calif., at Chez Panisse, where chef Alice Waters elevated pizza’s reputation by deep-sixing plain-Jane ingredients like preshredded cheese and canned tomato sauce in favor of artisanal goat cheese and local produce. In Beverly Hills, at his Spago restaurant, Wolfgang Puck topped pizzas with caviar and smoked salmon. Of course, neighborhood pizzerias and national chains continued to serve the more familiar mozzarella-laden pies. Chow for Now In recent years, another pizza renaissance has unfolded around the country—a return to oldworld roots. Traditional woodfired, brick-floor ovens are popping up everywhere, and many pizzerias now import their ovens, along with their flour and toppings, from Italy. The dedicated pizzaiolo (pizza maker) creates pies to the exacting standards of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN), an organization that certifies pizza is being made the true Neapolitan way. VPN-certified pizzerias use only

fresh, unprocessed ingredients and hand-kneaded dough to produce thin-crust pies no wider than 13.8 inches. Other chefs go in the opposite direction, defying tradition to include crazy new toppings, even making pizzas for breakfast (sausage and eggs) or dessert (peanut butter cream on a chocolate chip cookie crust). Of the quick-serve suppers people eat out, only burgers are more popular; more than 65,000 U.S. restaurants are classified as pizzerias, whether down-toearth corner joints or cuttingedge culinary shrines at which epicurean pilgrims wait in line for an hour or more. Pizza today can be anything you want it to be, from a belt buster stacked with cheese and meat to a low-fat version loaded with vegetables. There are so many options, and each style has its defenders and detractors; in fact, when it comes to pizza, there’s only one thing we all have in common: We love it. That’s amore, indeed.

“Eat Yourself Skinny!” 35-year old mother of 2 reveals how she lost 105 lbs & finally won the battle over her weight after a lifetime of yo-yo dieting

For the first time in my life, I can finally fit into a single-digit size – better yet, a size 8! That’s a huge victory for me because even as a teen, I had to wear a size 10 or 12. I was always told ‘You’d be so pretty if only you lost the weight.’ Because of my size, I never really enjoyed shopping, dating, taking pictures with my friends or any of the typical teenage girl stuff. After getting married and giving birth to my two children, the weight continued to pile on until I reached my all-time high of 266 pounds. Like many women, I’ve tried everything under the sun to lose weight – diet pills, pre-packaged meals, supplements, calorie counting, liquid diets… and the list goes on. Every once in a while, I’d actually lose a couple pounds, but then I’d AFTER end up gaining the weight right back – and some extra pounds on top of it! Tired of yo-yo dieting and frustrated with my results, I pretty much resigned myself to being a size 24. And with two young daughters, a husband and a full-time job as an accountant, it wasn’t like I had the time to make any drastic changes to my lifestyle.

could lose weight simply by sprinkling it on all your meals and snacks. It definitely sounded too good to be true, but I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. I could continue to eat what I normally eat and still lose weight without counting a single point or calorie or adding an exercise program to my already hectic schedule. But before I fell for another marketing gimmick, I decided to do a little research for myself.

EAT WHATEVER YOU NORMALLY EAT

I discovered that SENSA® is actually the result of over 25 years of research and testing by a practicing neurologist named Dr. Alan Hirsch. His extensive studies focus on the link between your sense of smell and taste and the affect they can have on weight-loss. When sprinkled on food, SENSA® works with your senses to trigger your body’s natural hunger control switch, so you feel full faster, eat less… and ultimately, lose weight. What sounded like magic was actually proven effective in one of the largest clinical studies ever conducted on a non-prescription weight-loss system. In a 6 month clinical study, 1,436 men and women lost an average of 30.5 pounds without changing their diet or exercise routines; all they did was sprinkle SENSA® on everything they ate.

I’m proud to say that I’ve now lost 105 pounds with SENSA®.* That’s almost a whole person! Thanks to SENSA®, I can finally play with my kids, take the stairs, go shopping, eat out and feel healthy and fit for the first time in my life. SENSA® worked for me, and it can work for you, too. Claim your 30-day FREE trial just like I did where the only thing you have to lose… is YOUR unwanted pounds!

I decided the only way to know if SENSA® would really work for me was to try it for myself.

stop dieting and try SENSA® – the first clinically

LOOK SEXY, FEEL YOUNGER

THE SENSA® BREAKTHROUGH

I ordered SENSA® and followed the simple directions – I began sprinkling it on all my meals and snacks, and the effect was almost immediate. On my third day using SENSA®, I had spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner – my all-time favorite meal – and I felt perfectly full from eating just half of my plate of pasta. Normally, I would have gone back for seconds! I lost 2 pounds in the first week, and 7 ½ pounds that very first month. As the weeks and months went on, the pounds continued to fall off. What was once a ‘muffin top’ began to transform into an hourglass figure. I began to enjoy shopping for new clothes and wearing styles that showed off my new body. And I no longer felt the urge to hide whenever a photo was being taken!

After trying and failing at so many diet programs, I was hesitant to start again and try something different. I remembered seeing an infomercial for a new product called SENSA® that claimed you

I was so motivated by my results that I even started jogging and eventually ran two 10K races. This from the girl who used to avoid running the mile in high school P.E.!

But my wake-up call finally came when I flew out to California for a family vacation and could barely fit into the airplane seat. Reality hit me like a ton of bricks. I was larger than I had ever been and I knew then and there that I had to do something about my body – if not for myself, then at least for my family.

BEFORE

The best part about this whole journey has been that I haven’t had to make any changes to my lifestyle. I still go out to my favorite restaurants with my husband. And I can eat whatever my family is having – whether it’s pancakes on the weekends or chicken nuggets from the drive-through on those hectic weeknights. I simply sprinkle my SENSA®, and I’m good to go! It really doesn’t get any easier.

What are the lawsuits about? The lawsuits claim that the Defendants conspired to fix, raise, maintain or stabilize prices of TFT-LCD Flat Panels resulting in overcharges to consumers who bought products containing the panels. The litigation is asking for money and an order to stop the Defendants’ alleged behavior that is the subject of these lawsuits. The Defendants deny Plaintiffs’ allegations or that indirect purchasers suffered any overcharge. The Court has not decided who is right.

Who is included in the lawsuits? The case is proceeding to recover money for consumers in 24 states and the District of Columbia and governmental entities in eight states, and for nationwide injunctive relief to stop the Defendants’ alleged behavior. Statewide Damages Classes: Generally, include any person or business that indirectly purchased TFT-LCD panels incorporated in TVs, monitors and/or notebook computers from one or more of the Defendants or Quanta Display Inc., from 1999 to 2006, for their own use and not for resale, while residing in the 24 states or DC. The purchase must have been made in the same state where the person or business resided. The specific class definitions, including exceptions to Class membership, are available at www.LCDclass.com. The 24 states are: AZ, AR, CA, FL, HI, IA, KS, ME, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, NV, NM, NY, NC, ND, RI, SD, TN, VT, WV and WI. Nationwide Class: Includes any person or business that indirectly purchased in the U.S., TFT-LCD panels incorporated in TVs, monitors and/or notebook computers, from one or more of the Defendants or Quanta Display Inc., between 1999 and the present, for their own use and not for resale, and reside in the U.S. as of the date of this notice. Attorneys General Actions: The Attorneys General of AR, CA, FL, MI, MO, NY, WV and WI are participating in these Settlements to resolve related claims arising from the same allegations as asserted in the class actions: (1) on behalf of state residents under the doctrine of parens patriae, which allows a state to bring a lawsuit on behalf of its citizens, and/or for governmental entities; and (2) for civil penalties.

For More Information:

What do the Settlements provide? There are seven Settlements, totaling $538,555,647, being presented to the Court for approval. Any interest earned will be added to the Settlement Fund. The Settlement Fund will be used to pay individual and business consumers in the 24 states and DC, and governmental entity consumers in the eight states. Some Settling Defendants also are paying civil penalties to the Attorneys General. More details are in Settlement Agreements and other documents available at www.LCDclass.com. The cost to administer the Settlements, as well as attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses, and payments to the Class Representatives, will come out of the Settlement Fund. In the future, Plaintiffs’ counsel will request attorneys’ fees not to exceed one-third of the Settlement Fund, plus reimbursement of costs and expenses. The attorneys also may ask the Court to permit the use of money from the Settlement Fund to help finance the ongoing litigation. The Settling Defendants have agreed not to engage in conduct that is at issue in these lawsuits and will establish (or maintain) a program to educate their employees about complying with the law, and will cooperate with the Plaintiffs in their ongoing litigation against the Non-Settling Defendants.

How can I get a payment? No money will be distributed yet. Plaintiffs’ counsel will pursue the lawsuits against the Non-Settling Defendants. All funds received in this case will be distributed together at the conclusion of the lawsuits or as ordered by the Court. You will need to file a valid claim to receive a payment. Notice about the claims process will be made available at a later date. If you want to receive notice about the claims process or future settlements you should register at www.LCDclass.com.

What are my rights? If you do nothing, your rights will be affected. If you do not want to be legally bound by the lawsuits, you must exclude yourself from the Classes or the Attorneys General Actions. The deadline to exclude yourself is April 13, 2012. If you do not exclude yourself you will not be able to sue the Defendants for any claim relating to the lawsuits. If you reside outside of the 24 states or DC you will retain any right you have to sue the Defendants for monetary relief. The Court will hold a hearing on May 18, 2012 to consider whether to approve the Settlements. If you stay in the Classes, you may object to the Settlements by April 13, 2012. You or your own lawyer may appear and speak at the hearing at your own expense. Any request for exclusion or objection must be mailed to: LCD Class, P.O. Box 8025, Faribault, MN 55021-9425. A class action trial against the Non-Settling Defendants is scheduled to begin on April 23, 2012. A second trial, involving the claims of the Attorneys General of AR, FL, MO, MI, WV and WI, is set to begin on November 5, 2012. Additional trials involving the claims of the Attorneys General of CA and NY may take place at a later date.

HARBOR FREIGHT TOOLS Quality Tools at Ridiculously Low Prices

PIE y Personalit What does your eating style reveal about you?

WHATI C A A M E RATS E

During the pizza tours he leads around New York City, Scott Wiener has observed more than 14,000 pizza eaters, and he says the way you get that slice from plate to tummy can say a mouthful. THE FOLDER You’re a multitasker who is always on the go, and you believe in eating to live rather than living to eat. Food just isn't a top priority for you. THE PIZZA SURGEON You are a bit of a martyr— you don’t mind suffering first if it means enjoying a treat later. This is why you carefully cut away the edges of the crust and scrape off the cheese, which you then savor last.

How does Harbor Freight Tools sell high quality tools at such ridiculously low prices? We buy direct from the factories who also supply the major brands and sell direct to you. It's just that simple!

Ask Marilyn By Marilyn vos Savant

My mother and I went shopping at a clothing store where a sale was in progress: Buy three items and get a fourth one (the least expensive) free. To take advantage of the sale, we decided to combine our purchases. Mine cost $39.75 and $34.75. My mother’s cost $36.25 and $27.50. So the total was $110.75, the cost of the three most expensive items. How much does each of us owe? —Jill Vandermeulen, Birmingham, Ala.

If there hadn’t been a sale, the purchase would have totaled $138.25. You would have owed $74.50, or about 54 percent of the value. Due to the sale, the total was $110.75, but your share of the value remains the same. That figure (54 percent of $110.75) is about $59.81. Your mother’s share (46 percent) is about $50.94.

StayHealthy Thyroid Cancer: Why Is It on the Rise? New diagnoses have shot up over the past decade. Here’s what you need to know. While new cases of some cancers— including breast, lung, and prostate— are leveling off, cancer of the thyroid (an endocrine gland in the neck) is spiking; diagnoses rose a whopping 173 percent between 2002 and 2012, making thyroid cancer one of the fastest-growing types in the U.S. “Better screening and detection may explain part of the increase,” says Robert Smallridge, M.D., chairman of the division of endocrinology at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. “Still, research suggests other factors must be at play.” One of the few known causes of thyroid cancer is radiation, and some experts believe

excess exposure may be behind the increase. Smallridge is less certain. “The most common radiation sources, such as dental X-rays and

recommends always asking your doctor whether an X-ray or a CT scan is truly necessary. He also advises wearing a thyroid collar (a small lead bib that deflects radiation) before dental X-rays. (Some evidence suggests these collars compromise mammography results, so they’re typically not recommended for breast screenings; talk to your radiologist if

you’re concerned.) The good news: Thyroid cancer is highly curable and still rare—less than 1 percent of Americans will be diagnosed in their lifetime. To further lower your odds, maintain a healthy weight and load up on vegetables.

Food Fight!

Should sugar be regulated? Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough spar over what role the government should play in our diet. MIKA: We have a huge problem

in our country when it comes to processed foods, sugar, and high-fructose corn syrup. Unless they’re regulated, we’re going to continue on a downward spiral toward obesity and bad health. I think the government should step in. One way to do that is to put a tax on soda. JOE: Mika’s vision of the nanny state is so overreaching. She is obsessed with telling people what to eat, what to drink, how to live their lives. And to a small-government conservative

like myself, that’s offensive. The fact is, most people don’t want the federal government involved in their bedrooms or in their refrigerators. MIKA: The amount of sugar our kids ingest is absolutely insane. If America’s parents were educated on what it does to their children’s teeth and bodies, they would be horrified. JOE: I’m sure that Mika was raised in the woods and ate tree bark, but I grew up in a middleclass family, and most of my breakfasts were Cap’n Crunch,

Froot Loops, or Lucky Charms. I was healthy and slender because I led an active life, just like most of us a generation ago. My grandmother poured sugar into Tune in to just about everyMorning Joe on MSNBC, thing, and she weekdays lived to be 93. from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Instead of focusing on telling people what to eat, t, we need to focus on encouraging kids to get up off the couch and go

outside to play. I think most Americans have changed a lot of their bad habits over the past decade. That’s why I don’t think the federal government needs to aggressively step in and dictate what people eat. MIKA: Joe’s diet is awful. JOE: You should see how healthy I am! Look, Mika preaches a great sermon, but when she goes home at night, she probably has Cap’n Crunch’s Crunch Berries and Cocoa Krispies. Am I not telling the truth? MIKA: No, you’re not. JOE: Mika’s diet is healthy and well rounded—if you’re a rabbit. Sometimes when we’re having lunch, I look at the leaves and twigs that she’s eating and I don’t know how she does it. MIKA: My guilty pleasure is the popovers at BLT Steak. I eat a lot of those. JOE: Mine is a super bacon cheddar bagel with cream cheese from Bagelheads in Pensacola, Florida. MIKA: I will say that Joe has really cut back over the past year on the calories and sugar he eats. JOE: Mika and I have had an influence on each other’s diet. I have severely cut back on calories. And she has relaxed a bit. Sometimes she will actually put four or fivve leaves on her plate. Really, though, she plate iis eating a little bit more, which I think is important. Everything in moderation.

Pancakes to Flip Over Author Janet Evanovich fondly recalls her grandmother’s Danish specialty AEEEEEEEB

EEEEEEEEE

My grandparents emigrated from Denmark to this country, and my grandmother brought her recipe for aebleskivers [round, AEEEEEEEB puffy pancakes] with her. It is close to 100 years old. When I was a little girl, we would all get together every Sunday at my grandparents’ house in Metuchen, N.J., and my grandmother would make us aebleskivers. The big dining room table would be set for us with white linen. Mountains of aebleskivers dusted with powdered sugar would come out of the kitchen on platters. We’d put out extra sugar in bowls for dipping. After you’ve eaten half of one, you mash the rest of it in the sugar. Why? We’re Danish, for crying out loud! It’s all about butter and sugar. EEEEEEEEE
