Come in out of the rain and read some links.
* Jessica Pressler had a really interesting story in New York Magazine about an ongoing war between cat people and bird people. (note, that’s people who love those animals, not actually a Cat Person who’s half feline, half human). Cats kill millions of birds a year and the bird people want the cats eliminated.
* Also in New York Mag, a piece on Mariano Rivera and his faith. Everyone knows him as the greatest closer of all time, but he’s ready to move on to a new stage of his life, as an evangelist.
* In the wake of another horrific case of a child being left in a vehicle and dying — most recently in Moorhead, Minn., — it’s worth visiting Gene Weingarten’s piece in the Washington Post from a few years ago.
* The podcast of the week is not a podcast, at all; it’s the return of the Jerry Seinfeld project “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” Always funny stuff. Not sure which I like more: Known guests or obscure ones – Sein must think very highly of the folks in the latter category.
* Some dude in Maine has lived the hermit lifestyle for 27 years. But he’s also an alleged thief. What the what?
* Odds are that you’ve already seen this link, but if not … please, please, please read the Washington Post tale about a family trying to move on without their son, who died in a school shooting. Gut wrenching.
