The power of journalism and quality writing is epitomized by this intense and moving article on the death of children in the back seat of a car [via]. The byline, “Forgetting a child in the back seat of a hot, parked car is a horrifying, inexcusable mistake. But is it a crime?” makes reexamine your first responses to such tragic accidents and makes you doubly cautious about making similar mistakes. The article strikes the perfect balance between highlighting facts and emphasizing emotion. We don’t have children yet we were shaken to the core after reading this article. Great job, Gene Weingarten.
