Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is a monster, but that shouldn't restrict investigation into his beliefs that led up to the Boston Marathon bombing. This act of terrorism was abhorrent, but I don't fault Rolling Stone for doing an article on the subject, or for putting the remaining suspect's photo on the cover ("Rolling Stone rocked by criticism for upcoming Tsarnaev cover," July 18). It's time Americans began questioning our blind acceptance of multiculturalism and our policies of admitting refugees without considering the cultures from which they emanate.

MTV's lauding Rolling Stone magazine is a little bit like the rustlers inviting the hangman to dinner. No love's ever been lost between rock's premiere magazine and the genre's first TV network."

At first, it sounds as if the band is just tuning up. Mick Jagger honks out a call on his harmonica. Guitarist Mick Taylor responds with a blues run. Ron Wood twiddles between a couple of notes. Then Keith Richards lands the haymaker opening chords to “Midnight Rambler,” Charlie Watts crashes his way in on cymbals and drums and the long-running locomotive that is the Rolling Stones roars to full, satisfying life, careening down the rails, popping rivets, threatening to jump the tracks.

Dear me. It's Demi again, posing naked on the cover of a magazine. This time, the star of "Disclosure" has dissed clothes for the Feb. 9 Rolling Stone. It's a bit of a cliche by now, isn't it? Twice already, the aging 1980s-styled Brat Packer has won eyes and ayes and oys for streaking across Vanity Fair's front window. Anyhow, the dull Q&A has the actress responding to writer Mim Udovitch's stale comments on Paula Jones and Anita Hill, as well as this question: "Who has the superior butt, David Letterman or Michael Douglas?"

Here's a new form of TV programming for you: the docu-entertainment special.That's what Fox is calling its "Rolling Stone '93: The Year in Review," which airs at 9 tonight on WBFF (Channel 45).Actually, only the label is new. The format is basically the same one folks like Barbara Walters have been using forever. With apologies to the Fox executives who get paid for coming up with terms like "docu-entertainment special," what we really have here are celebrity interviews.But while the format isn't new, the celebrities for the most part are hot, hot, hot. And they generally have interesting things to say -- even though their segments are more like expanded sound bites than full-blown interviews.

LET'S TAKE the P.J. O'Rourke sarcasm test."Saddam Hussein -- he's worse than a Hitler, worse than a Stalin, worse than waking up wearing a wedding ring next to a Roseanne Barr who's grown a mustache . . . He's got chemical weapons filled with . . . with . . . chemicals. Maybe he's got the Bomb. And missiles that can reach Riyadh, Tel Aviv, Spokane . . . Bury all the Hummel figurines in the yard. We're all going to die. Details at eleven."That's quintessential O'Rourke captured in the Oct. 18 issue of Rolling Stone ($2.50)

If Stanley McChrystal has any kind of mordant humor, surely the song playing in his head these days is that old tune by Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show, the one about "the thrill that'll get-cha when you get your pict-cha on the cover of the Rolling Stone." That's actually Lady Gaga on the current cover, nearly naked but for an undergarment that gives "bullet bra" a whole new meaning. But somehow McChrystal has managed to upstage her even though he only makes an oblique appearance in the vicinity of her left knee, in a teaser headline, " Obama's General: Why he's losing the war."

New York To begin at the end, here's what Jann Wenner wants on his tombstone: "He was a great father, and he did great magazines."The man who is father to three sons and founder of one of the great original magazines of our time, Rolling Stone, says he could live with that epitaph. So to speak."You know, when you ask somebody what they want on their tombstone, you're asking them, 'What are you fundamentally proudest of in your life? What is the thing that matters to you most?' " says Mr. Wenner, forcing each word through thin plumes of cigarette smoke.

NEW YORK -- The wait for a new novel from Tom Wolfe willhave lasted 10 years -- until next November -- when his publisher brings out the writer's first hardcover fiction since the popular "Bonfire of the Vanities."Meanwhile, Wolfe is offering an appetizer in the pages of Rolling Stone, where "Bonfire" first appeared as a 27-part "serial novel," and his book publisher has offered a few other details of the much-anticipated work."Ambush at Fort Bragg," a tale of sensationalistic TV reporting that debuts in the Dec. 12 issue of Rolling Stone, was spun off by Wolfe from his novel-in-progress.

Every one of the Rolling Stones' 50 years has etched a line into Keith Richards' face, making it certainly one of the most battle-scarred visages in rock -- which makes it oh-so-incredibly cool when he breaks into that scraggly smile, the one that says, "I've survived, and I've prospered. Howzaboutyou?" Tuesday night at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center, the Stones' 50 & Counting tour rolled into the City of Brotherly Love for a party that celebrated all sorts of things: survival, perseverance, genius and glory undimmed.

As a veteran, I disagree with the letter "McChrystal's naïveté, Obama's thin skin." While President Obama has shown his thin skin on many occasions and has been unremarkably political when responding to detractors, in this case he got it right. The military survives on chain of command. It serves no purpose for military commanders to publicly badmouth their civilian leaders, and in fact it serves to only create unrest within the rest of the military. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were who they are long before the Rolling Stone interview took place, and they were duly elected by Americans to lead our military efforts abroad.

Flying at 30,000 feet over the Atlantic is about as detached from earthly concerns as one can get. Seat bound and strapped in found me staring at Lady Gaga's two gun M16 brazier photo on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, reminding me that the world below is full of strangeness and requires a reality disconnect from time to time. Michael Hastings' article in Rolling Stone, "The Runaway General", also requires the previous description pulsating off the front cover. The article, and General Stanley McChrystal's outing by President Obama, is history.
