Column: For the love of pie

In the springtime, our thoughts may turn to love but in autumn, they turn to pie — at least mine do. Sweet or savory, pie is an ancient dish, known at least as far back as the Romans, Greeks and Egyptians Even the most authoritative references are vague as to the origin of the word “pie,” so I feel competent to leap into the gap with my own associations.
