Every Friday, Swimming in the Nile will bring you five links which will serve to titillate, educate or inspire. A bit like Capt. Sullenberger, you know. Hopefully these links will also be talking points, of which you and your friends, online and offline, can discuss. So, without further ado, I bring you the latest Friday Link Roundup!
• Al Kennedy on why it’s impossible to convince a writer not to become a writer ‘without also killing them to some significant degree.’
• Capt. ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, pilot of the airliner that took a dip in the Hudson, performs another heroic and heartwarming gesture.
• A fascinating SMH article on the difference between flexibility and elasticity. Seriously.
• Chitra Divakaruni gets to the bottom of the Great Slumdog Debate.
Well, that’s all for this week. Have a good one!
