Quick Takes

In the midst of an interesting interview, so thought I'd break up things with a quick comment cleaner (and we've really needed them lately).

First, here are links to YouTube videos made by 24-year-old Nikayla Baldomero, who survived an apparent suicide pact with 22-year-old Joseph Brown on Monday. Both were found hanging from a picnic pavilion in Parkland; Brown didn't make it. They give you insight into her life and, at least in my case, make you feel sad as hell. 

Click inside to see another one of those Sun-Sentinel political videos that is almost as sad to watch.
