Question: What was with all the abuse directed at you last week (Ask Ausiello 9/28)? I think people who have no sense of humor should be banned from the gene pool and your column. I still love you, even though you never mention Bones and seldom mention How I Met Your Mother!

Answer: Just for that, here's some Bones prattle (see!?!?!?!): When the show returns from its baseball-imposed hiatus next month, we'll learn that (SPOILER ALERT) Booth (David Boreanaz) has a 3-year-old son and a gambling problem. And look for the sexual tension between Scully and Mulder Booth and Boone to veer off the charts when Booth's g-friend considers moving in with him.
