In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at a Vietnam War photo essay, Will Steacy, Library of Congress and Nina Robinson.

  • To commemorate the start of the Vietnam War 50 years ago, the Atlantic's In Focus has published Alan Taylor's three-part photo essay: Early Years and Escalation, Losses and Withdrawal and Hands of a Nation.
  • In The slow death of the great American newsroom, Tim Adams tells the story of photojournalist Will Steacy. "For five years from 2009," he writes, "Steacy documented the struggle and decline of Salisbury's paper, the Inquirer, the third oldest survivor in America, as it was hit by falling sales, bankruptcy, five changes of ownership and round upon round of staff cuts." A book with his photos and essays by journalists will be published next month.
  • The Washington Post reports the results of an investigation by the Government Accountability Office of the Library of Congress "reveals a work environment lacking central oversight and faults Librarian of Congress James H. Billington for ignoring repeated calls to hire a chief information officer, as required by law."
  • In Love and Loss on the Road to Arkansas, Evelyn Nieves tells the story of freelance photographer Nina Robinson. "She had been asking herself the big questions, about what life and death and loss and love mean in the world," Nieves writes. The 27-image slide show of Robinson's family grieving the loss of her grandmother provided some light on those subjects.
