COVER STORY: A quadriplegic mother on raising twins: “Having a disability is not the end of the world”
Dani Izzie and her husband, Rudy, insist there’s nothing special about how they’re raising their twin girls in rural Virginia. Except that in 2009 Dani slipped on a bathroom floor and snapped her neck, paralyzing almost everything from her chest down. But that did not stop her from getting married, and pregnant, and giving birth to Lavinia and Giorgiana during the pandemic. Correspondent Lee Cowan talks with an extraordinary woman, subject of the documentary “Dani’s Twins,” who just wants to be considered a normal mom.

STAGE: “Camelot” and the legend of King Arthur
Nominated for five Tony Awards including best musical revival, Lerner & Loewe’s “Camelot” is a romantic telling of King Arthur, Queen Guenevere and the Knights of the Round Table. But did Arthur really exist? Correspondent Mo Rocca talks with professor Dorsey Armstrong about the history and legend of the British king; and with writer Aaron Sorkin and Michael Lerner (son of lyricist Alan Jay Lerner) about how the 1960 musical became a legend itself, when the tale of an enchanted kingdom was viewed through the prism of a contemporary Camelot, the Kennedy administration.
