I am beyond disbelief that even though there is a glaring problem with the policies of policing in New York City, coupled with an inherently flawed justice system, not one new law has been passed since a father of four was choked out on a hot, summer day last July in Staten Island.
After the spate of white cops/black deaths -- and planted evidence in the Scott case -- should we continue to take police at their word when making life-death decisions? Matalin and Reagan debate the Slager killing and whether this time it'll be different. Also: We discuss kickoffs of Rand, Hillary, Iran-Nuc.
The supremely delightful Alex Da Corte's Die Hexe (The Witch) at Luxembourg and Dayan Gallery is surely the most engaging exhibition to emerge on the Upper East Side or anywhere in Manhattan in quite a while. It is not too late to scoop this last Easter Egg out of the basket.
With the Democratic primary unlikely to be competitive, attention will soon turn to Hillary Clinton's choice of a running mate.
There are a number of ways you can help to end sexual violence. From being aware of the risks to trusting your instincts and stepping in when a friend needs your help, you may be able to help prevent a sexual assault from occurring.

In an attempt to avoid being unoriginal and predictable, It Shoulda Been You takes some serious chances. You have to admire the effort for sure.
The revamped An American in Paris, the Broadway musical at the Palace, is sui generis. There is no other musical on The Great White Way to equal it. The dance-driven production, ending with a stunning, 14-minute ballet that closes the show, is a triumph.
I discovered Brooklyn-based artist Aaron Gemmill at this year's SPRING/BREAK Art Show and was transfixed by his print "To live where other pass (nest II)," with its bolts of white dancing across the luxurious background of undulating blue.
There's nothing revolutionary about the plot to the show, but it stands apart from others like it thanks to a heightened sense of importance. That's due to the fact that the show is set in Paris after World War II, where there's a spring in people's step for the first time in a long time.
There is nothing like the electricity present on a Broadway opening night. Those in attendance at film premieres often say the audience feels charged. In the theater, the actors have a chance to pick up on that. That energy impacts them on the stage.
