The Reconciliation Package Finally Takes Shape

Yesterday’s meetings between President Joe Biden and various groups of Democrats at the White House yielded some specifics about which programs will likely be in or out of the final package. The climate piece seems amorphous still — no doubt due to the fossil fuel-loving proclivities of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). The package Biden outlined dropped in price to the high $1 trillions, a clear sign of Sens. Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s (D-AZ) influence. Some cuts, like two years of free community...

Showtime's The First Lady: Everything We Know So Far

If there's any topic above all others that I personally don't need to see covered in our entertainment anytime soon, it's recreations of our past and present circumstances during this pandemic.

Thankfully, Showtime's "The First Lady" anthology series looks to be steering well clear of both areas, instead focusing on dramatizing the lives of three First Ladies...
