Young composers are always searching for ways to get their music heard. The occasional concert performance, "vanity" CDs and cassettes, brief sound bites on their Web sites--it's tough sledding for most. Upland composer Peter Boyer, on the other hand, has achieved what most composers his age--31--only dream about. On Tuesday, KOCH International Classics will release a compact disc consisting solely of his concert music.

In the Sept. 24 cover story by Peter J. Boyer ("Mr. Clean's Mid-Life Crisis"), Steve Garvey aired his dirty laundry. Then, as a sequel, we were treated with Cynthia Garvey's one day in jail for contempt of court. This appears to be no more than an arrogant egomaniac seeking revenge on his ex-wife. Mr. Garvey states he would like to run for public office. He can't even run his own affairs. If this man can't be loyal to one woman, how could he possibly be loyal to a constituency. His current wife is kind enough to offer to raise the children born to the other women with whom he had affairs.

CBS president Laurence A. Tisch said Wednesday that he thinks Walter Cronkite will remain at CBS News, even though the former anchorman has said he'll be free to work elsewhere in news next fall under his new contract with the network. "We are having very friendly discussions with Mr. Cronkite," Tisch said. "They're going in the right direction, and I am sure that Mr. Cronkite will be a permanent fixture at CBS . . . at CBS News."

Peter J. Boyer, who went from the newspaper world to television last February as the media critic on the troubled "CBS Morning News," is returning to print on Dec. 2--as a television reporter for the New York Times. "It's a chance to work at the New York Times, and I'm excited about that," Boyer said by phone over the weekend when he confirmed rumors that he is leaving the program. However, he added, "I had a great time at CBS, learned television, and enjoyed my colleagues."
