Our original post:
Mystery writer Dennis Lehane is asking for help in solving a case that's very important to him:
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Rudolph is of course known as the red-nosed reindeer, and scientists say they may know why that's the case.
Physiologist Dan Milstein with the University of Amsterdam and a group of colleagues examined the noses of several living reindeer.
"There was a much richer amount of blood vessels present inside Rudolph's or reindeer's nose in comparison to humans," Milstein says.

Whit Deschner stands in the middle of a pasture outside of Baker, Ore., probably 30 or 40 feet away from a black cow licking a white salt block.
To most of us, this may look like a bucolic scene from ranch country, a smattering of black cattle on a vast field that spreads toward distant mountains. But, for Deshner, it's art in the making.
