A magnificent song. The pain of the children asking their mama if it were true what they had heard... with the orchestral arrangement bedim them. Whoever says that blacks in mid-century America were just having sex, doing drugs and didn't care about family should listen tot this song!

Wow! The contrast of the sky and the strongly-lit building is startling. And the 'no parking' sign is omnipresent.

So, if I were a governor, I would do exactly what the MD and CO governors did! they are trying to protect the people in their states and with a dysfunctional federal govt. they have to be entreprenurial. Good for Larry Hogan and Jared Polis!

What a charmer is Tony (Dr.) Fauci. This is an interview long before the current pandemic, but he's been working on infectious diseases for more than 35 years! AND he's a Jesuit-educated product.

I agree that Warren staying in the Senate has a more important purpose than her being chosen as VP since control of the Senate is our second priority after getting rid of Trump. I think that Biden has other choices- but many of the likely women candidates are also in the Senate - Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, for example.

This is the real corruption. I wish Warren and others would call it out directly, rather than referring in general to corruption.
