Alongside our heaps of reality television personalities, Kardashian-style celebrities and teenage pop stars, the United States is poised to get something it sorely needs: a public intellectual. Ronan Farrow has the celebrity background. He's the son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen -- or so it was thought until earlier this month, when his mother coyly hinted to Vanity Fair that his father might be Frank Sinatra . Either way, he's clearly got celebrity lineage. But he's also got intellectual chops.

After introducing the 26-year-old wunderkind (against the background song from could-be/could-not-be father Frank Sinatra's "Fly Me to the Moon") and listing his various achievements at a tender age, host Stephen Colbert teased Farrow about the purported generation his show, "Ronan Farrow Daily," intends to appeal to. The show airs at "1 p.m. weekdays to appeal to the youth demographic of people who are just waking up from not getting to their job," Colbert said.

" Farrow, in a new interview with Vanity Fair , said she and Frank Sinatra "never really split up" after their two-year marriage, which ended in 1968.

Woody Allen's adopted daughter Dylan Farrow on Saturday repeated - and elaborated on - her assertion that the filmmaker sexually assaulted her when she was a child. Farrow's open letter, published on the New York Times website, is part of a renewed public scrutiny of allegations first leveled against Allen in 1992, shortly after the end of his relationship with actress Mia Farrow. In a Vanity Fair story published in October, Dylan Farrow (who now goes by another name) also laid out details of what she said happened to her. Allen, who has long maintained his innocence, could not be reached for comment Saturday.

In the long run, it doesn't matter whether you believe the tragic story of Dylan Farrow, who alleges that her father Woody Allen sexually assaulted her 20 years ago when she was 7 years old. Nor does it matter whether you believe Woody Allen, who was never charged with a crime, and who has steadfastly maintained his innocence. This scandal is and will remain a case study in frustration. We will never know for sure what happened. And yet our impulse is to take sides. But to what end?

Piers Morgan out, Ronan Farrow in. On Sunday, CNN confirmed that "Piers Morgan Live" will be ending next month, proving that a large Twitter following and pedigree of minor non-journalistic celebrity (though a former editor, Morgan, 48, was mostly known as a judge on "Britain's" and then "America's Got Talent") does not necessarily a successful news host make. Then on Monday, MSNBC debuted the first hour of "Ronan Farrow Daily," proving that a large Twitter following and a pedigree of minor non-journalistic celebrity (though a contributor to many news organizations including this one, Farrow, 26, is mostly known as the super-smart son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen)

Re "Ethiopia's war on its own," Opinion, Feb. 25 Ronan Farrow sends a misleading message about Ethiopia's effort to battle international terrorism and local insurgents. The article failed to study the geopolitical intricacies of the Horn of Africa and the emergence of terrorism as a weapon of proxy war by a rogue regime in the region. He quoted a single person in Kenya claiming Ethiopian security forces were responsible for human rights abuses, but the "separatist rebels" had merely carried out a few attacks.
