Last week, CBS’s “The Good Wife” returned from a long and disheartening hiatus. Last night, Julianna Margulies appeared on “The Tonight Show,” presumably to raise awareness of the hit show’s return. CBS recently announced that, despite “The Good Wife’s” susceptibility to preemption by awards shows, sporting events and whatever else the network chooses to start the week with, the program has been renewed for a sixth season.

In addition to leaving both Fallon and fellow guest Patton Oswalt practically stammering in her wake, the impeccably styled Margulies also dropped a tidbit about this Sunday night’s episode: Apparently, “A Few Words” will feature a cameo from New York Mayor Bill de Blasio when Margulies’ character Alicia Florrick is asked to speak at an American Bar Association conference in the city. (Oddly, “The Good Wife” is set in Chicago, but films primarily in New York.)

De Blasio is unlikely to face the same volume of slings and arrows that President Obama has weathered as a result of his appearance on an Internet sketch. But seeing as how the mayor is currently embattled on at least one major front, let’s hope his dalliance in a bit of entertainment levity does not cause him to appear weak to his opponents. Then again, considering that “The Good Wife” paints most politicians as conniving if not utterly corrupt, de Blasio should be more worried that he not come off as too much of a badass.

    Pond de l'Archeveche - hundreds thousands of padlocks locked to a bridge by random couples, as a symbol of their eternal love. After another iconic Pont des Arts bridge was cleared of the padlocks in 2010 (as a safety measure), people started to place their love symbols on this one. Today both of the bridges are full of love locks again.

    On a weekend trip to buffalo from Toronto we made a pit stop at Niagara Falls on the Canadian side. I took this shot with my nexus 5 smartphone. I was randomly shooting the falls themselves from different viewpoints when I happened to get a pretty lucky and interesting shot of this lone seagull on patrol over the falls. I didn't even realize I had captured it in the shot until I went back through the photos a few days later

    Lucky timing! The oxpecker was originally sitting on hippo's head. I could see the hippo was going into a huge yawn (threat display?) and the oxpecker had to vacate it's perch. When I snapped the pic, the oxpecker appeared on the verge of being inhaled and was perfectly positioned between the massive gaping jaws of the hippo. The oxpecker also appears to be screeching in terror and back-pedaling to avoid being a snack!

    This wave is situated right near the CBD of Sydney. Some describe it as the most dangerous wave in Australia, due to it breaking on barnacle covered rocks only a few feet deep and only ten metres from the cliff face. If you fall off you could find yourself in a life and death situation. This photo was taken 300 feet directly above the wave from a helicopter, just as the surfer is pulling into the lip of the barrel.
