  1. Alexander Herzen:

  2. North Carolina:

    Walter Jonesa and I came to Washington together in 1995, having worked alongside Walter Jonesa for nearly 25 years, I can tell you without hesitation that Walter Jonesa left North Carolina, Congress, and North Carolinas country better places than Walter Jonesa found them. Walter Jonesa will be remembered as a man of strong principles, willing to take an unpopular stand when necessary. Walter Jonesa was a hard-working and faithful public servant, and Walter Jonesa will be sorely missed.

  5. Tobias Harris:

    Joel Embiid led the 76ers with 30 points and 10 rebounds. Tobias Harris added 20 points and five rebounds despite leaving briefly after a scary fall that bloodied Tobias Harris left eye. Embiid couldnt put a finger on one thing that upended the team this postseason. Theres a lot of regrets, i feel like the focus wasnt always there. We just got ta look ourselves in the mirror and do better. Tobias Harris was trying to contest a shot by Jayson Tatum at the 2:40 mark of the third quarter and inadvertently had Jayson Tatum legs taken out from under Jayson Tatum by Jayson Tatum. Harris fell on the left side of his face and laid on the court for several minutes as medical staff attended to him. He suffered a left eye laceration and was cleared of a possible concussion. He returned to the game with 5:12 left in the fourth with a bandage over his left eye. I felt OK enough to go back out there and try and do something to help us win.
