I have worked for social change for more than 20 years, fighting for causes as diverse as police reform, juvenile justice and green jobs. Over the years, I have come to believe that two major flaws are undermining our reform movements.
Mondays, 8-9: NBC - Launching the Careers of Mediocre Singers As Though the Fate of Western Civilization Depended On It And, At This Point, It Probably Does
The familiar piano intro filled the arena and a bunch of old guys started singing "Sister Christian." Not only did they sound like Night Ranger, they were Night Ranger. With a little Botox.
Showing reruns in primetime is far more lucrative than convention coverage. But if the three major networks want to avoid rightful challenges to the licenses of its stations, they should accept their mandated responsibility to serve the public interest and not just their bottom line.
Even if Barack Obama were born in Kenya (which I don't believe to be the case) the president still would have been a U.S. citizen at birth, because his mother was an American, a fact which nobody to this date denies.
I've been recapping this franchise for a long, long time. Not in recent memory have I been so eager to hit the fast forward button on my DVR to see what happens next.
Can Katie save the day, or is ABC's daytime lineup -- once the most robust at any network -- doomed to a future of mediocrity?

John McCain and Mitt Romney share a secret. It's 23 years of Mitt's tax returns.
I have no doubt I'll get sucked into the drama -- I have a hunch most reality show producers were probably trained by the Dharma Initiative. Who will Emily pick tonight? Will it matter? Will their love be everlasting? Will I care? We'll see...
All the amateurs (including those voted off) have come back, the final three will give one last performance, and at the end of the night, America will have its winner.
How about setting a similarly themed film in Oklahoma, beginning with residents discussing their feelings about Senator James Inhofe's insistence that climate change is all a big hoax that Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II, and Pope Benedict XVI somehow fell for?
For CNN and Fox News, the race seems to be not who got it first, but who got it worst with the Supreme Court ruling.
The amateurs rehearsed some of the best standards in music history. By "standards," I'm sure they meant "older songs that many people have covered since its release."
