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.

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?"

WHEN A nobody cozies up to a celebrity in the black comedy "The D Train," the photobombs go off in all directions. Lighting the fuse is Dan (Jack Black), a dweeb planning his 20-year high school reunion, which is going badly until he recruits class heartthrob Oliver Lawless (James Marsden), now a Hollywood actor. Lawless - it's an apt name for the sexually voracious Oliver, who bunks with Dan and his wife (Kathryn Hahn) in the days leading up to the reunion. Along the way, there's an incident (beware spoilers)

IN "THE D TRAIN," Jack Black is Keyser Soze. He's the psychologist who treats a kid who sees dead people, then realizes he's dead. He's the guy in "The Crying Game" whose girlfriend has an Adam's apple. He is, in short, a guy at the center of a jaw-dropping plot turn. Should this plot point be revealed? In the case of "The D Train," opening Friday, it's a divisive question. Some critics are doing it, some aren't. So, we put it to the highest authority we could think of - Jack Black, who stars in "The D Train," and who produced it. "Its tricky!"

Mia is the kind of woman who once made a list of 257 must-haves in a future mate, including a sense of humor and an affinity for avocados. She assembled a wedding binder before Dan had even proposed and picked out a name for their firstborn before the baby was conceived. When that child, Judah, was 2, Mia - intent on conceiving again - endured Clomid injections, ovarian cysts, and surgery for endometriosis. She started acupuncture. She and Dan consulted a reproductive endocrinologist.

"Without it, we're animals. " In Patrick Marber's 1997 play Closer , you can take your pick of the qualities his four characters lack: honesty, conscientiousness, or any semblance of kindness as the quartet swap partners in an evening-long daisy chain of lies, betrayal and humiliation. By contrast, Luna Theater's intense, brutal production leaves little to be desired theatrically. The simmering chemistry between Gina Martino and Sam Henderson (as Alice and Dan) is at first adorable, complicated later by Dan's infatuation with Anna (Kirsten Quinn)

Dan was sure he did not want to conceive more children. Sure enough to have a vasectomy nine years ago. But that was before the divorce, before the joint custody arrangement that meant seeing his kids less than half the time, and before he ventured onto OkCupid and found Mary, who loved indie music, camping . . . and children. They e-mailed for two months - never talking on the phone, which both of them find "awkward" - before they met. Mary planned a date with an easy escape clause; she proposed that they meet for drinks at PJ Ryan's, just downstairs from her apartment.

The playlist below highlights reindeer season songs of note by both flashy pop stars and less exposed indie acts, with a mix of traditional and freshly minted holiday songs. Some of these songs date back hundreds of years, but all have been recorded and released in 2014, starting with the gospel-blues "Do You Hear What I Hear?"

STARKVILLE, Miss. - The first time his father made the trip for a spring football game, Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen warned him about the drive, that it would be a rural one from the airport in Jackson up to Starkville. Mullen told him it would be like traveling in the hills of Pennsylvania "past the Main Line.
