Lundi links: The digital life and U.S. postal service cuts

Here are some posts and articles I've read during the past week that I wanted to share:

My friend B.  shared this article via facebook about the digital life that's consuming many people in first-world countries.


After an American woman was murdered in Istanbul two weeks ago, Steph defends female solo travel and explains why it's certainly not to blame in situations like this one.
Twenty Something Travel


I was surprised and a little saddened to read that the U.S. Postal Service plans to cut Saturday mail delivery come August, 2013.  As a huge proponent of snail mail, I wish some other solution could be found for the USPS's financial problems.


But to end on a happy note, read this post about Nicholas Winton and the hundreds of children that he selflessly saved during World War II.  I'll have to watch the documentary, Nicky's Family, that's referenced in the post.
