Read This: Make a Grown Man Cry Edition
Good afternoon, everyone. The weather is gorgeous, and only 23 more days 'til Halloween! So allow today's Style section to inject some levity into your day.
First up: The Baltimore Colts. Three words, Ann Hornaday says, that can elicit "I'm-not-crying-it's-allergies" tears from the staunchest of dudes. She recommends "The Band That Wouldn't Die," a new Barry Levinson documentary that "chronicles the all-volunteer Baltimore Colts Marching Band, which stayed together after that team's notorious defection from Charm City in 1984, continued to play at parades and neighborhood events and even at other teams' games, and finally succeeded in bringing a National Football League team back home."
Next, there's Del Quintin Wilber's gripping tale of William Thomas Massie, who survived 11 months of torture in a North Korean jail in the late 1960s. After suffering decades of emotional and physical problems, he successfully sued North Korea for damages.
Elsewhere in Style: Did Tom DeLay's foot fractures hurt "Dancing With the Stars" ratings so much . . . that producers pushed him out? Mary Cheney is starting her own political consulting firm. And, after 64 years, a WWII vet returns books -- which contained national treasures hidden by the Nazis -- that he took from a salt mine in Germany.
