Hu­man in­ter­est tales are­worth read­ing

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - VOICES & OPINION - Eugene O’Con­nor, Pom­pano Beach

I found the April 17 ar­ti­cle on Ben Beach’s Bos­ton Marathon streak by Kyle Hightower of the Associated Press ex­tremely in­ter­est­ing and up­lift­ing. I looked for­ward to read­ing more on his ac­com­plish­ment of com­plet­ing 50 con­sec­u­tive Bos­ton Marathons, along with the re­sults posted in the next day’s pa­per. I was very dis­ap­pointed when there was no men­tion of his ef­forts. In­stead, there were — as usual — sev­eral ar­ti­cles on vi­o­lence, cor­rup­tion and man’s in­hu­man­ity.

We do need to be in­formed of cur­rent events, how­ever, we need more hu­man in­ter­est sto­ries such as this. I look for­ward to read­ing of Ben Beach’s com­ple­tion of this his­toric event in your pa­per soon.
