Pope Francis called for peace in a speech in Myanmar on Tuesday, but he did not mention the country's minority Rohingya population. Rights activists had been paying close attention to see what he would say about violence against that country's Rohingya Muslims. Rachel Martin talks to journalist Michael Sullivan about the speech.

Many actors, politicians and executives, including at NPR, are now facing sexual-harassment allegations in the court of public opinion.

But in actual courts, such cases filed by workers against their employers are very often dismissed by judges. The standard for harassment under the law is high, and only an estimated 3 percent to 6 percent of the cases ever make it to trial.

Marilyn Mollenedo spent years working at a series of administrative jobs. So when her husband landed a well-paying position in San Francisco, she figured it would finally enable them to put aside more money for retirement.

Instead, her husband's salary, coupled with a generous pension from an earlier government position, thrust them into a costly new tax category, where they had to pay the alternative minimum tax.
