Murrysville PA, Sometimes News is Six Degrees of Separation.

I’m not counting 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombing in this, only because, I’m connected to both places.  How often though, do we see a terrible story, such as the stabbings in the high school in Murrysville, Pennsylvania and think, “How horrible,” but then move on to the next story, such as Malaysian Airlines Flight 370?

Well in this case for me, there is a connection.  My friend Lindy Comstock, Linguist at UCLA attended that high school and is from there.  While she doesn’t live there anymore and isn’t attending high school, it is a part of her world.  Because she’s my friend it’s personal.

Our modern social media networks have made these connections a possibility.   The Six Degrees of Separation becomes even more possible.




About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
