The Slice

Mixed feelings

I would recommend tracking down a long Washington Post feature story by the great Gene Weingarten on small children accidentally getting left in hot cars. It was written a few years ago. It is stunningly good.

But there is an image in that piece that is so disturbing, so haunting, that I am not sure I would feel right about having a role in placing it in your head.

It's not presented in a sensational way. It is quite matter of fact, almost noted in passing. Still, I know I will never forget it.
