The CBS news controversy has opened an old wound. But before I share my thoughts with you, it is important to let you know a few things: I worked for CBS for 24 years, and currently I serve as special contributor to KYW news radio, owned by the company that owns CBS. Dan Rather wrote the foreword to my first book. I like him and respect him. With that out of the way, let me get to the point. The big flap at CBS is bigger than the horrendous mistake that was made. It goes to the very heart of what the news business is all about and the downside is scary - the possibility that all news organizations will be more timid and frightened when it comes to pursuing tough and hard-to-get stories.

My invitation to armchair detectives to solve the mystery of the Dan Rather beating has brought a quick and large response. I haven't been able to read them all yet, but I've come across at least one plausible theory. It comes from an amateur sleuth named John "Sherlock" Brody, who lives on the North Side of Chicago. This is Brody's solution. As we all know by now, Dan Rather, the CBS News anchorman, was walking along Park Avenue in Manhattan late last Sunday evening. He had been visiting a friend and was on his way home.

In the coolness of time, Dan Rather may well be regarded with the same awe and reverence now afforded Edward R. Murrow, founding father and patron saint of CBS News. But in the heat of the moment, Rather has become one of the most criticized, hounded and harassed newsmen in TV history, a magnet for calumny and misfortune. He's the most closely watched anchor. And the most frequently bashed. For Rather, 1987 was one Dan thing after another. But he says the worst is over, for him and for the news organization to which he is devoted.

Why is this Dan standing? Because he wants to. "I feel comfortable with it," says Dan Rather of his new posture. After eight years of anchoring from the seat of his pants, Dan Rather has decided to stand up while he delivers "The CBS Evening News. " He thinks the three network newscasts look too much alike, and he likes being on his feet. Rather, managing editor as well as anchor of the top-rated newscast, taped a few sample stand-up editions last summer and liked the feeling.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My girlfriend and I have been together five years. Shortly after we met, I met her best friend, Dan, who had just started a relationship with Rachel. Rachel became very moody as the relationship progressed, and seems very temperamental and controlling. At the same time, Dan seems more withdrawn from our group of friends. Because of Dan's withdrawal from social activities, my girlfriend proclaims to our friends that she does not consider him a friend anymore.

Katherine is attractive, successful, witty, and educated. She also can't find a husband. Why? Because most of the men this thirtysomething software analyst dates do not want to get married. These men have Peter Pan syndrome: They refuse to commit, refuse to settle down, and refuse to "grow up. " However, given the family court policies and divorce trends of today, Peter Pan is no naive boy, but instead a wise man. "Why should I get married and have kids when I could lose those kids and most of what I've worked for at a moment's notice?"

By Sally Friedman On Sunday, in my usual morning stupor, I shuffled into the kitchen, turned on the coffee, flipped on the TV, and heard something ominous about a mass shooting. My instant thought was that our 19-year-old grandson was in Israel, thousands of miles from his Merion home, and that this might have something to do with him. Israel is a country where too much unrest explodes too frequently. "Dear God, let him be fine!" I begged, my heart beating wildly. And then I began hearing the details.

Bringing a bit of Silicon Valley to Happy Valley, the just-concluded fifth-annual IST Startup Week at Pennsylvania State University has been stoking students' entrepreneurial spirit with talent talks from the likes of Reddit, Politico, Stealth Startup, and Twitch execs. But no University Park visitor this week was hotter than Dan Kan, 29, the COO of Cruise Automation, the autonomous-driving-technology company. Spawned less than three years ago in San Francisco and first seen as a David in the robotic-driving arena where Goliaths such as Google are now roaring, Cruise caught notice with its promise of the first "aftermarket" add-on system that could take over control of a car on the highway.
