A Mayan calendar once showed the world as we know it ending on Dec. 21, 2012. Now, a newly discovered Mayan calendar may finally disprove that myth.
(Also: I hope this is the only time I ever have to use the word “apocolypse” as a Tumblr tag.)

This is the cover for this week’s Time Magazine. And it’s already a hot topic of discussion this morning.

Hope you’re enjoying these spring temperatures this week and that much-needed rain yesterday. We’re looking good for the rest of the week.

Some of our anchors are Maurice Sendak fans and took time today to read “Where the Wild Things Are” in memory of the author who died today at 83.


Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.

That’s author/illustrator Maurice Sendak. Dead today at the age of 83.

This is the kind of photo that makes you say, “Good dog.” Well, you have no idea how right you are about that. This dog, Gabe, is a Sergeant 1st Class in the Army and has 170 combat patrols under his collar. The American Humane Society also has him up for an award.
