I take great comfort in the fact that some of her last moments were spent with Dad and me, and especially with such a compassionate puppy, who somehow knew what my dying mother needed most: unconditional love.
By standing with Memphis sanitation workers and calling on the city to treat these black workers with dignity and respect, MLK taught us that racial and economic justice are intrinsically linked.

You can't just expect any nurse or any doctor or any health care worker or layperson to understand the deconning procedures by way of some kind of pamphlet or 10-minute training video. Not only is it mentally rigorous, but it's physically exhausting.
It has been years since the opening weeks of a new television season truly "belonged" to broadcast -- but it seems that this year, in particular, the "other guys" have been coming on especially strong, with big news, bold moves and some of the most exciting new shows of 2014.
