Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. I was really moved by my colleague Melinda Henneberger’s tribute to Elizabeth Edwards over at Politics Daily.

2. Equally moving was this tribute by my colleague Mia Navarro to a close friend she lost to AIDS, also at Politics Daily.

3. On the New York Times Motherlode blog, Laura Shumaker tells us about what happens when children go missing.

4. Perhaps because I’ve been beset by flu myself all week, I was really drawn to this account  in the Los Angeles Times by writer Meghan Daum of her recent, inexplicable hospitalization. (Hat tip: Lisa Romeo Writes)

5. Here’s the interview I did with Al Jazeera (English) on the media coverage of Tony Blair and George W. Bush’s memoirs. (Segment starts around 12:20)

6. An odd and inspiring story:  the best-selling song in Germany for the past eight weeks is a cover of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” by a now deceased, Hawaiian ukelele player named Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. Apparently, the song just keeps on inspiring. Have a listen.

    Going to read them all like crazy, but I wanted to thank your for the referral to the Elizabeth Edwards article – I just truly needed to read that good piece and was so happy that it included the bumps but did not make that the focus.

    A talented and fierce woman – a character and a mother, we need to celebrate those good women that come along
