I see people saying “How can this happen? Isn’t this America?”

Police action at peaceful UC Davis Occupy protest 

Let’s not pretend like the police actions taken this week are anything new. It’s just the most recent manifestation of a problem America has had for a very long time.

Chris Pratt worked with Marvel and Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to arrange a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for patients, families and staff at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Wednesday. While the movie played, Pratt snuck out and dressed up as his character, Star-Lord. He spent more than three hours in full costume and handed out movie-themed toys. Pratt also visited patients in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases, and the Pediatric ICU, as they were too sick to join the movie screening that afternoon.

Pratt spent extra time with one patient, Dylan Prunty, who is a longtime Lego fan and recognized the actor’s voice from The Lego Movie. They spent about 10 minutes reciting different scenes from the film.

I’ve always enjoyed ending my interviews with a light-hearted round of word association. Osric’s rapid-fire reactions to the following: 
 
Jensen = Jared
Misha = kale
Mark Sheppard = soccer
Paper mache = my own face in the mirror
Vancouver = Supernatural
Mama Tran = Lauren Tom. Oh, I miss her. I’m going to see her next week.
