Daily Links 1-16-14

In today's edition: Radio goes Radical, a story that will make you feel good, Alfred Hitchcock and the Holocaust, and more.


This is good news: Moody Radio has announced that it will be hosting Radical with David Platt on its stations this spring. I'm glad to see that he is going to be getting a wider audience.


A mom's open letter on the internet to a stranger went viral and for good reason:

A heartfelt open letter from a mother thanking a 'kind stranger' for entertaining her autistic daughter during a two-and-half-hour flight has been read more than 51,000 times with many deeming it a 'touching' and 'beautiful' story. 
Shanell Mouland, 36, from New Brunswick, Canada, uploaded a note to her blog Go Team Kate last Thursday detailing how the mystery passenger engaged her three-year-old Kate in conversation instead of ignoring her. 
'Thank you for not making me repeat those awful apologetic sentences that I so often say in public,' she wrote. 'Thank you for entertaining Kate so much that she had her most successful plane ride, yet. And, thank you for putting your papers away and playing turtles with our girl.'

Be sure to read the whole thing. It is a heartwarming story and a good reminder that in a situation like that its better to extend kindness to a stranger rather than being wrapped up in our own little world.

Chevy's new ad for the Malibu celebrates Dads as the "richest guys on earth".

Right on the money. Kudos to Chevrolet for running this ad.

The headline on this news story is a little misleading as the film in question is not entirely Alfred Hitchcock's documentary though the famed director did some work on the original project. Reportedly he was quite traumatized by what he saw. Now comes word that the fully restored version of the film will be released later this year. As difficult as it is to watch a film like this we need to not shy away from the evil that was at the heart of Nazi Germany. We must know fully the atrocities of the past so that we don't allow such terrible things to happen again.
