Today on the reduced price bakery rack at my neighborhood grocery store I noticed a peculiar item for sale: a "Marion Berry pie." Because it was very cheap, and because I was fascinated by the prospect of a pie named after the former mayor of DC, I bought the pie.

It turns out that the marionberry is a type of blackberry. The "Marion" in the name comes from an Oregon county where the hybrid was developed. So my pie is more likely to be filled with fruit than with, say, cocaine.
