Today's best-of show on this Labor Day begins with New York Times columnist Gail Collins. She'll discuss her take on finding humor in Republicanism, her time on the editorial board, and her interest in Texas. Then, Earl 'The Pearl' Monroe looks back on his career at the New York Knicks and gives analysis of some more recent starting line-ups; we hear about the rich history of the intersection of sports and politics; and poet Maya Angelou reflects on her family. Plus: two takes on gender in the workplace: first on overcoming differences, then on women farmers.
