Two Sunday Magazine stories worth a read

Newspaper Sunday magazines remain a great place for great stories.

Here are two very different magazine pieces that look at medical technology, personal choices and the impacts of those choices in two very different ways. One is first person, while the other is a traditional magazine piece. One interesting element here is the comments readers have posted, and the way they responded to these works.

Please read these stories and post your thoughts by Saturday at 6 p.m. Then log in on Sunday to respond to your fellow students.

The first is from the Washington Post.

Here’s another from The Sunday New York Times magazine.

And here’s what the NY Times Public Editor had to say about this piece this week!

What went into the reporting on these pieces? What’s the point of view?

Did you enjoy reading them? What did you learn from them? Do the comments add or detract from your reading of these stories?
