The intro for our monthly installment of Links Of The Dead typically reads as follows: “Some deathly reportings I have encountered in the past month or so– from somber to hilarious, from informative to creepy, here’s a snippet of things that have come across my radar with reference to matters of mortality.”
This month I think I am going with: here’s a bunch of mostly depressing news brimming with heartbreak and despair. But some of it may be helpful or heartening, too. Don’t lose hope, friends. We will get through this.
(This month’s featured artist is such a favorite that I am compelled to include two images.)
