My new heroes—the Parkland students

I'm running like crazy, on my way to Parkland, Florida, but here are some links to some of the media I did the past few awful days: Watch Deadline Whitehouse clip. Watch New Day. Clips of 2 nights with Anderson to come. Transcripts here: Wednesday show: Thursday: CLIPS OF SOME PRIOR APPEARANCES AFTER PREVIOUS SHOOTINGS. (How sad is that?) Update Mar 4: I just added a blog post about my guest spot on CNN's Reliable Sources podcast. You can listen here. I also updated my Interviews page with links to these recent Parkland appearances.

Stunning passage from Denis Johnson's 'Largesse of the Sea Maiden'

Halfway through Denis Johnson's Largesse of the Sea Maiden, I was liking but not really loving it. There were scattered wondrous moments, but a lot of chaff. And then I began the story "Triumph Over The Grave." I'm not even finished with it, but it's already spellbinding. And this passage. This is why I love him.

It was great as far as I got. I hope to return to it at some point, but not pushing my luck.
