Saved by Strangers.

Sunday’s New York Times Magazine featured biographies of lesser-known people who died in 2005. I didn’t read all of them, but the ones I did read were amazing. My favorite was this one about Joseph S. Frelinghuysen:

What felt perverse was how beautiful the setting was. Frelinghuysen would later describe in his memoir the stunning beech and oak forests of those valleys in the region called Abruzzi — the flaming colors of autumn and the toylike villages stacked into the hills.

    That is a truly beautiful story. Kudos to Sara Corbett for spinning it out of cloth that we very nearly tossed aside.
