On Two Special People

I like human-interest stories and this past weekend the Today Show gave me two great stories: one about Rebecca Alexander and one on Bill Cosby.

Rebecca
Not only is Rebecca Alexander a sister to NBC’s Peter Alexander, she also has Usher Syndrome Type III – a disorder leading her to being both blind and deaf. Despite her condition, her strength and outlook is amazing. Here’s the interview with an accompanying print story.

Cosby
This year marks the 25th anniversary of The Cosby Show. Lester Holt used his interview with the legendary Bill Cosby to look back at the brilliant series. Plus see a grown-up Rudy.

Today Show interview, Bill Cosby quotes, and a clip from Season 8.
