Saturday Links: Plague, Atheists and the Jersey Shore

A ground squirrel in California was found infected with plaque, but it’s neither as rare or as serious as that sounds. Every year, about seven cases are found in the western United States, mostly in rodents.

Here’s an interview from last March with Susan Jacoby. She discusses her book about Robert Ingersoll with Bill Moyers.

This series of photos of the Jersey Shore circa 1980 brought on a heavy dose of nostalgia for me. They look like all the people in the memories I’ve been recounting.

If you’ve come across anything interesting during the course of the week, please feel free to share it in the comments.
