Q Is journalist Chris Wallace related to Mike Wallace of 60 Minutes?
—L. Helms, Ponca City, Okla.

Yes, Mike Wallace is Chris' father, although the hard-charging 60 Minutes correspondent and his wife divorced when their son was 1; Chris grew up with his stepfather, Bill Leonard, who eventually became president of CBS News. Since 2003, Chris, 59, has hosted the Fox-TV weekly Fox News Sunday series, which followed his previous longtime positions with the NBC and ABC networks. Mike, 89, retired from 60 Minutes last year, but returns occasionally for special assignments.
