Joel Schumacher was a master of the modern blockbuster. The director made "Batman Forever," "The Phantom Of The Opera," "Flatliners," "The Lost Boys," "St. Elmo's Fire," the movie adaptation of John Grisham's book "The Client" and so many other films. He was an unabashed lover of cinema. He put it this way in a 2015 interview.

Florida Gov. DeSantis recently announced a dramatic decline in the state's median age for coronavirus patients: from 65 years old in March to 37.

Dr. Cheryl Holder, an associate professor at Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine at Florida International University, says that's likely due to older people heeding warnings about how to stay healthy.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

The fiery scenes of just over a week ago seem like another lifetime in the sprawling protest camp built around the Seattle Police Department's vacated station in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

Tear gas has given way to the smoke from a hot dog stand. Makeshift clinics now stand on the streets where young protesters were injured by flash-bang grenades. Music — calypso on one corner, Public Enemy on another — mingles with the sound of speeches about defunding the police. Selfies are snapped in front of signs welcoming visitors to "Free Capitol Hill."
