Evening chat – Robin Williams

A celebrity’s death shouldn’t matter much in the scheme of things. But Robin Williams touched millions of lives via his art. And the manner of his death—probably suicide—and the cause—months of battling severe depression—are epidemics in this country. Sometimes the loneliest place is surrounded by loved ones who don’t understand.

Comedy chat – The genius of “HISHE”

CNN: A march on Washington originally scheduled to coincide with August’s opening of the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial, but postponed due to Hurricane Irene, will take place today.

The march, organized by the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, hopes to “start a drive to bring forth the masses of those who have not been heard in the middle of this jobs debate,” he told a news conference.

It will occur the day before the rescheduled opening ceremony for the King Memorial, which also was postponed because of the hurricane.

The march will begin with a rally at the Lincoln Memorial and conclude near the King Memorial. Sharpton called the route “emancipator to liberator.”
