Attention, all you movie people out there who cruise the paper looking for ideas. Here's one from Lesley Stahl: "A story of a girl and her presidents, a girl and her mother, a girl and her daughter and a girl and her hair." Especially the hair. "When I went to '60 Minutes,' [Executive Producer] Don Hewitt said, 'I hate your hair.' " Actually, so did we. But we were too polite to say so. "He said it was too stiff. It looked too much like Nancy Reagan's.

In the aftermath of Tuesday's celebrations of Mardi Gras, “CBS Sunday Morning With Charles Osgood” on Sunday profiles the city's bastion of traditional music, Preservation Hall , and the venerable venue's namesake jazz band. The segment includes an interview with bassist/tuba player Benjamin Jaffe, son of Preservation Hall founders Allan and Sandra Jaffe, the couple that turned what had been an art gallery into a home for musicians who still championed the style of jazz that developed in the early 20th century, most famously by native son Louis Armstrong.

From the deja vu files: Washington's CBS affiliate, WUSA-TV, mistakenly began its "Face The Nation" broadcast Sunday with last week's preview of the New Hampshire primary. Commentator Lesley Stahl started the show with "Welcome to 'Face The Nation,' this is Lesley Stahl in New Hampshire," and spoke of what would happen in last Tuesday's primary. The error was not detected until more than five minutes into the show.

If there's one thing I hate, it's female intellectual mudslinging. A major trend among women in the media is the tendency to prove that one is more feminist than thou. What it all comes down to is the pot calling the kettle bimbo . Recently, when New York Times columnist Anna Quindlen retired, a number of RIGs--Really Important Gals--took the occasion to chide Quindlen for having written a column about home and family.

Ted Koppel's decade-old ABC institution, "Nightline," is about to face some first-class news competition. Starting Monday at 11:30 p.m., CBS will pit Charles Kuralt and Lesley Stahl against "Nightline" with their own half-hour series, "America Tonight." Just as "Nightline" grew out of reports on the Iran hostage crisis, the Kuralt-Stahl series is a product of their specials on the Persian Gulf showdown.
