FROM Maureen Dowd
Maureen Dowd on 'The Year of Voting Dangerously: The Derangement of American Politics.' It’s the event we’ve all been waiting for. The first heavyweight battle (a.k.a. debate) between presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump happens Monday . For some insight into these two personalities, we turn to Maureen Dowd. She’s been covering them both for two decades for her Pulitzer-Prize winning column in the New York Times. Now she’s collected a lot of those columns, along with some new writing, in a book: “The Year of Voting Dangerously: The Derangement of American Politics.”

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."
