We are members of WBUR in Boston, which produces a lot of the most interesting content, and today was an especially fine example. The very warm and gregarious Robin Young interviewed her colleague Miles O'Brien about the months of denial he experienced when losing most of an arm in a freak accident. Because he lost the arm far from home, he actually kept reporting on major stories -- such as the lost Malaysian airliner -- without colleagues or even his family knowing what had happened. In many ways, it turns out, he did not even let himself know what a loss he had suffered.
