I keep getting a bit stuck on this sad Puget Sound killer whale story. Everything is connected. The salmon story is connected to what people eat, the history of the region. The orca story is connected to where people build their houses, the chemicals they use on their lawns and in their gardens. As I continue to think about ways to draw positive attention to basic biological research and the importance of getting public support to do this work, I wonder - does this story effectively draw you from the charismatic start towards thinking about the more difficult, underlying problems?

Jen Graves wrote a wonderful piece on art "based on a true story" - the piece unfolds well.

After reading about this upcoming movie (based on a true story, a memoir, actually!), Wild, I don't know that I'm going to go and read the book or watch the movie, but the review itself is interesting in how it discusses 'successful' storylines.

Stan Pocock, a rowing legend, passed away this past week. row2k has been highlighting various pieces that have been written about the Pococks, including this one about the third generation Conibear stroke, which I want to work my way through.
