Roxana Robinson’s latest novel, Sparta, is about a Marine lieutenant coming home from Iraq. To write that novel, Robinson talked to many veterans, and began to understand how complicated it is for them to really come home.  And now she's learned how an unusual therapy can ease that re-entry.

A former member of the renowned Harlem Globetrotters basketball team died this week.  Some also knew Connecticut's Alvin Clinkscales as the first black high school coach in state.  Many called him a  mentor and friend.
