Sexual Assault

Since Last We Spoke, 4/22/13

I don’t know about you, but last week I reached my news saturation point. By Friday night I had to shut down my electronics and just get away from all of it. (My eyes needed a break, as the brilliant Amy Poehler stated.) So a lot of what I’ve been reading *isn’t* about Boston, but about everything else going on in the world. I included a couple things that were particularly relevant from last week’s horrible violence in my list of what I’ve been reading since last we spoke, but I really tried to protect myself a bit by limiting what I was exposed to (and let’s be very clear–I’m extremely lucky that I could make that decision). Here’s hoping this week is a better one for all of us.
