Today’s Briefing: Quick Links

“She hid her memories of me in these rooms in the hope that disease might not find them, my name in one room, the memory of my face in another, the sound of my voice in a small closet at the end of the corridor. But the disease was thorough. It tracked down her memory, room by room, snuffing out each synaptic spark.”

–From Michael Ignatieff’s “Scar Tissue” (1994).
