FROM Guy Horton
Denise Scott Brown After joining forces in the 1960's, Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi became one of the most famous couples in architecture, who influenced a generation with their research-based book, Learning from Las Vegas. Then, in 1991, Robert Venturi was awarded the Pritzker prize, the highest architectural award for a global architect. Denise Scott Brown was not included in the award. This past March, two students from the Women in Design organization at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design decided to rectify what they saw as a deep injustice, and launched a petition making the case that Denise Scott Brown should receive co-credit. The petition garnered thousands of signatures. This month, the present Pritzker jury announced it would not revisit the decision, writing, “A later jury cannot reopen or second guess the work of an earlier jury, and none has ever done so.” She discussed the challenges facing women architects with Guy Horton.

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."

Accusations of lying fly between James Comey and White House During his testimony Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey accused President Trump and other White House officials of lying when they said the FBI was in disarray and its staff had lost confidence in him. President Trump’s lawyer said Comey was wrong -- that the president never asked for his loyalty, and never asked him to back off the investigation into former NSA director Michael Flynn.
