On "Breaking News" by Eric Hawthorn (1483 words) ****

Sometimes a story comes along that does something I haven't seen in print before. I love that when that happens, and the older I get and the more well read, the less often that does. In "Breaking News," the author chooses to slow down the narrative so that we watch everything in slow motion, only like some weird video (I'm thinking about a Radiohead video at the moment, and also a U-2 video), everything else continues in real time. This is totally cool. Read it here at Battered Suitcase.
