Critical Linking: November 21st, 2014

 

The shot I heard behind me I did not feel, nor did it hit me at all. He was about 5 feet from me, but he hit my books. Books one minute earlier I had checked out of the library, books that should not have stopped the bullet. But they did. I learned this about 3 hours after it happened, I never thought to check my bag. I assumed I wasn’t a target, I assumed I was fine.

Unbelievable story. Glad this kid is okay.

Literary adaptation sprawl is here, and it’s real.

Bravo.
