NEWS BRIEF: Killer Mike challenges “nuisance business” statute

An initiative by Atlanta city officials to shut down businesses considered a “nuisance” would hurt mostly small, Black-owned businesses, according to entrepreneur Micheal Render, also known as rapper Killer Mike.

Widescreen: 'Moon Knight' baffles, 'Saul' gives hope, Killer Mike comes to Chicago

Steven is a shy, reserved British gift-shop employee; Marc is a violent mercenary with the obligatory troubled past. Both can become powerful heroes thanks to Khonshu (voice of F. Murray Abraham), the Egyptian god of the moon. The series' most interesting dramatic scenes have one identity speaking to the other in reflections.
