Once upon a time, when Bonnie Bernstein left CBS to pursue bigger and better things, some rumors were out there that made her departure seem, perhaps, a little less than noble. Corrections and retractions are all over the place. Here, too. Nothing scandalous happened, it was just a case of Bonnie looking to carve out a more meaningful place for herself in this crazy world, something I doubt I'll ever get around to doing.

Michael Silver at lets Bonnie tell her own story, and I'm convinced: the woman is just way too talented and driven to be doing sideline reporting. So while we'll miss her, along with her scarves, her hats, and her ability to draw profanity out of Roy Williams, we're glad she's moving on to bigger and better things.
