If David Berman tells the audience members at First Unitarian Church on Tuesday that he loves them, he won't just be mouthing hollow stage patter.

In addition to erasing the four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady with his ruling Thursday morning, U.S. District Judge Richard M.

With McDonald's about to go to an all-day breakfast and the NFL already having appealed Berman's ruling that freed Brady to play in New England's season opener Thursday against Pittsburgh, you can expect to be paying premium prices for eggs into the distant future.

If a "drug-induced psychosis" caused the explosive outburst that led Nicholas Borsello to murder his wife 13 years ago, it wasn't a prescribed drug that did the damage, a forensic psychiatrist testified yesterday in Delaware County Court. Instead, said Perry A. Berman, Borsello likely committed the killing under emotional duress heightened by stimulants not prescribed by a doctor.

DROP DEAD DIVA. 9 p.m. Sunday, Lifetime. BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - No one, it appears, set out to make Lifetime's "Drop Dead Diva" an occasional musical. Not Brooke Elliott, a Broadway veteran who stars (and sometimes sings) as Jane Bingum, a staid lawyer possessed by the spirit of a ditzy blond named Deb (Brooke D'Orsay). Not Josh Berman, who, before creating "Diva," wrote for CBS' "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and Fox's "Bones. " Not even, apparently, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, two of Berman's fellow executive producers and the Oscar-winning team behind the movie musicals "Chicago" and "Hairspray.
