Like little stars.
On Wednesday, Alec Baldwin, who is currently failing at his attempt to “quit public life,” guest-starred in an episode of “Law & Order: SVU,” joined by Katie Couric and Questlove. Mariska Hargitay, who plays detective Olivia Benson, debuted as director in the episode investigating a rape and possible hate crime of an Indian woman.
Baldwin, an actor who happens to hate the media, played a controversial newspaper columnist, Jimmy “Mac” MacArthur, who impeded the investigation. In a bright turn of events, though, the bristly Mac turned out not to be the bad guy we all think he is.
“I always land on my feet,” he told Benson at the end of the episode. “I am 55 years old. My profession is dying. My ex-wives all hate me. My credit cards are maxed out because I’ve got three kids in college.”
Then, with a smile and a cough, he added, “And I never felt better in my life.”

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
