It was Queen Elizabeth who made me a foreign correspondent. Before she turned up, my newspaper career had consisted of listening to Baltimore policemen reminisce about great hangings and covering bush-league statesmen deploring the state of the world. I had also covered night rewrite: stickups, accidents, floods, fires, murders, from supper time to 2 in the morning. It wasn't a dead-end job, but neither was there a lot to look forward to except retirement after 40 years of good behavior.

With the release of yesterday's report, the pressure mounts for CBS to find a replacement for longtime anchor Dan Rather. The leading contenders: CBS White House correspondent John Roberts has been a favorite since Rather announced last fall that he would step down in March. Scott Pelley, correspondent for 60 Minutes Wednesday, is thought to be Rather's choice. NBC's Katie Couric, co-anchor of the Today show, has the kind of ratings power the network would like. ABC's Diane Sawyer, co-anchor of Good Morning America and a former 60 Minutes star, still has friends in high places at CBS.

That story, inevitably, is recounted through the prism of race.

Helen Thomas, the cranky White House correspondent who once said that there is no such thing as a rude question from a reporter, died last week at 92, her pioneering reputation tarnished by a streak of anger her role as a journalist had masked. After United Press International, where she had worked for 57 years (49 as its chief White House correspondent), was purchased by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church in 2000, she resigned. But she was hired shortly thereafter by Hearst Newspapers as a political columnist, writing for another decade.

With so many new furnishings coming onto the market all the time, it can be difficult to distinguish among the good, the bad and the mediocre. Apart from the pat criterion of "I know what I like when I see it," are there reliable standards for judging the quality of a particular piece?Of course there are. And one very useful way of gauging the success or failure of a new design is by considering how well it responds to contemporary needs.Take the example of the "office-in-a-box," made by Haworth.
