* Steve Brill is named Newsweek columnist. “This is a great opportunity for me to return to writing and reporting full time,” he says in a release.

* Time managing editor Jim Kelly confirms that Osama bin Laden is among the half-dozen candidates being considered for Person of the Year.

* Brattleboro Reformer photographer Jason Henske is threatened with arrest for treason after he’s seen taking a picture of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant while on assignment.

* Ted Turner predicts the consolidation of the cable industry will result in only two operators still standing by 2003.
