Finally, the pictures of people camping out in the cold outside the Supreme Court, so they could get in to hear the oral arguments on marriage equality, brought back memories for me.

You might not believe this, but on this very day in 1979 my buddy Dave and I walked into the court after having done the same thing — although I confess we weren't as smart about it as the people were this week. We had nothing — no tent, no tarp — just our notebooks and some hot tea we bought at the train station.

By the end of his career, Arnold Newman had developed a reputation for his "environmental portraiture" — a signature way of capturing artists and intellectuals in the spaces where they worked.

Every Sunday morning since July 1998, I've been a volunteer host on KUNM.org in Albuquerque, N.M., and a show called Train to Glory. Each week, I play three hours of national and local gospel recording artists, soloists, groups and choirs, spanning both traditional and contemporary gospel (including gospel hip-hop). The music is rotated to keep it up to date, dedications are made and requests are played.

The Good News Is That We Know 'Idol' Is Really Live Now

Michael Becker Fox

Originally published on Thu March 28, 2013 9:56 am

Last night on American Idol was Motown Night, when we all learned that Motown songs (like "I Heard It Through The Grapevine") should all be sung as seriously as possible, wearing a scowl, with all the fun sucked out. (And that was a performance that was pretty good.) It's in keeping with this season, in which melodramatic ballads have dominated even more than usual.
