In the days and months to come, much will be said and written about Brian Williams and his first utterances to Matt Lauer on Friday's Today Show about his suspension from anchor chair at the Nightly News.
A sincere apology by Mr. Williams confessing the litany of deceptions with full responsibility is a sin qua none for forgiveness. It is a far cry from being enough to give him any job back. Tigers don't often change their stripes. His reinstatement is a sad comment on society. Dollars and cents are the daggers that trump integrity.

Dancing to Pitbull's "Fireball," 96-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch and ballroom dance teacher Vard Margaryan wowed the "America's Got Talent" judges and audience on Tuesday, June 9, 2015.
I have long been impressed by Yvonne Barteau. She is not only one of the nation's most accomplished dressage riders, but as a Post-50 woman, she continues to excel as a performer and trainer.

The Today Show's celebration of this fantasy misses the reality that prostitution is rarely light, loving or funny. In the quarter century since the film's release, we know much more about the links between prostitution and human trafficking.
Watching Today I'm heartened by the cast and crew's enthusiasm for the guide dog movement and I'm reminded that it really does take a village to breed, raise, and train every single service dog.
Comedians have to be funny. Much of the news is hardly funny. Even so, Mr. Williams successfully walked this line until news broke that seriously damaged his credibility.
Sincere humility and gratitude aren't qualities one normally associates with the entertainment industry. That's why I was bowled over during the closing segments of Saturday Night Live's recent 40th-anniversary broadcast.
So for anyone who thought the success of Common has come out of nowhere, please study the totality of his stellar career and his partnership with Derek. I realize what I'm requesting is odd in the world of tweets, sound bites and 24-hour news cycles. I promise you will be entertained.
At $200 Million and counting, American Sniper has touched a nerve and set off a national debate on who is real and who is fake. After being maligned by journalists, morning anchors, and bloggers, the Fake Baby from American Sniper is telling his side of the story. And yes, he did it in one take.
