I apologize for posting such mainstream links, but I'm finding that Time Magazine's coverage to be uniformly thoughtful and moving. Two articles in particular - one of Vignettes of victims and near victims, and another about Digging Out - have touched me in ways I never expected Time Magazine to do. Have you found comfort or eloquence in an unexpected place?

You shouldn't have to apologize for posting mainstream links. This isn't an indie rock publication. These articles were indeed moving-- the second one being one of the only articles I've seen to directly address the remains of the dead.

I'm usually quick to turn away from anything that leans towards being maudlin, but for the last week I've been determined to watch and read everything I can about the individual victims. Even if it's just a list of names and hometowns, as is often the case, it's my way of acknowledging and mourning the dead. Thanks for the links.
