FROM Paul Williams
Paul Williams and Stephen Kessler Paul Williams was perhaps the foremost songwriter of the 70's and 80's. He wrote or co-wrote hits like "The Rainbow Connection" and the Oscar-winning song "Evergreen," which was the theme to the Barbra Streisand film A Star is Born. He was also a fixture on The Tonight Show and The Merv Griffin Show and made guest appearances in prime time and on game shows. But in recent years Williams has been largely absent from Hollywood. Stephen Kessler sought out his childhood hero expecting to find someone worse off than when he was at his peak. Instead he found a grateful man with nearly two decades of sobriety who looked back on his life in the limelight with a mixture of shame and good humor. He documents it all in Paul Williams: Still Alive .
How do Trump supporters feel about the Paris Accord? Globally and around the U.S., there are strong opinions whether or not the Paris Climate Accord is a good idea. The American exit is either a horrifying abdication of American leadership or a forceful and long overdue statement about U.S. sovereignty.
Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
