FILE - Actor Hal Holbrook greets patrons in stage make-up following his one man performance in "Mark Twain Tonight" at the University of Texas at Tyler, Texas, in this Jan. 13, 2007 file photo. The crowd sang happy 175th birthday to Mark Twain before the lights went down at the Clemens Center, Tuesday night Nov. 30, 2010 then laughed along with the nearest incarnation of the late author and humorist: Hal Holbrook. The 85-year-old actor once again put on his white suit and makeup and reminisced, wisecracked, smoked and scolded Tuesday night in the latest, and not the last, stage re-enactment of Twain's world famous speaking engagements from the turn of the 20th century. Twain died 100 years ago in April and is buried in Elmira, home to the family of his adored wife, Olivia. (AP Photo/Dr. Scott M. Lieberman, File)

LeBron James' 'I can't breathe' T-shirt the latest display of politics on the playing field

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James on Monday night during pregame warmups wore an “I can’t breathe” T-shirt, referring to Eric Garner, who died after a New York police officer placed him in a chokehold during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes.
