I wanted to point out last night’s (April 19) edition of The Daily Show. While the episode didn’t have a theme as such, water was prominent in two segments.
First, correspondent Hasan Minhaj visited a town in Texas that is dealing with contaminated water. And Marc Edwards sat down with Trevor Noah. Edwards is a professor at Virginia Tech and was one of several scientists who drew attention to the problems Flint, Michigan continues to have with its water.
In Monday’s post I neglected to mention the premiere date of the HBO film of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. You can watch it on the pay cable network starting Saturday April 22.
