Linked Up – 4/19/13

This edition of Linked Up is admittedly a bit maudlin and sentimental. As this sentence is typed, there is a manhunt going on in the Boston area, in the days following a heartbreaking tragedy. Yet as has been frequently pointed out these terrible events often bring out the best in humanity as people pull together. Similarly, when talented writers tackle the immense emotion in such situations, it produces brilliant and touching pieces of writing. Which is what Linked Up, in many ways, is about, so those pieces dealing with the aftermath of the bombing are provided here. Let us also not forget there are still many great Connecticut high school sports stories being written, and we have plenty of those as well. The underlined story separates the two sections if readers would rather skip more coverage of the marathon.

From this point on are non-marathon-related links.
