CBS Sunday Morning on December 26, 2010

Sadly, KYW pre-empted "CBS Sunday Morning" for stories on the coming snowstorm/blizzard and a press conference from Michael Nutter, Philly mayor. Lots of Skype from Kate Bilo in the mobile weather lab. Nutter materialized at 9:19am. Expecting a major winter storm event. Declared a snow emergency for 2pm on Dec. 26. The emergency operation center to be activated at noon Dec. 26. Nutter noted, as best we know, the Eagles-Vikings game is still on. Can't park on snow emergency route after 2pm or your car "will be relocated." Philly residents have to clear sidewalks to at least 36" within 6 hours after the end of the storm. 215-232-1982 for the homeless outreach center. You can follow the emergency operation center on twitter. KYW cut Nutter off at 9:25am.

Viewers were retuned to Patel of Interfaith Youth Corps. "Religion as a force for good." Just ahead: holiday movies.

"Lost in Translation" began the segment "Room Service" on Chateau Marmont. "The Hollywood Hotel," the perfect place to hang-out and act out. The chateau is about discretion and privacy. "Welcome to the Hotel California" (Eagles). Sophia Coppola: Somewhere. Hotel started in 1929. Jim Belushi found dead in 1982 in a bungalow. Atmosphere like a stage set from a familiar old movie. Gothic-glamor. Led Zeppelin/motorcycle. Rough around the edges. Pole dancers from room service? Discrete hideaway with imperfect perfection.

"On her Toes" on Darci Kistler of New York City Ballet. Started ballet in elementary school. Joined NYC ballet at 16, picked by George Ballanchine. "Mr. B." Peter Martin. Baby Bunheads. Earlier in 2010, Darci gave her final performance at age 46.

David Edelstein said the best time to go to the movies is between Christmas and New Years. He did not like "Tron Legacy" or "little Fockers" (making asses of theselves). Previously, recommended The King's Speech and The Fighter.
Black Swan: Brilliantly made dumb movie. I love you Phillip Morris. Rabbit Hole. True Grit: happily defies categorization.

Ben Stein, yellow tie, dark blue shirt. Season to clean out homes. Clean out resentments, grudges, anger. Give the gift of forgiveneess. Ben talked about being fired from a job he liked. Ben's weaknesses to be forgiven: Wild overeating, extravagent gestures. It will really make you feel like ho ho ho.

Pulse: 60% will NOT make New Year's Resolutions.

Punch bowl made of ice. Katie Lee on punch. Magic in a bowl. Tad Carducci. Lime sherbet. Punch is an English sailor's drink, derived from brandy. David Wondrich. He placed Irish whiskey into a punch. Punch gave us mixology, the cocktail. Punch came to the US as early as 1670. Champagne punches.
