The People of LWON and their splendid guests have several ongoing preoccupations, and rather than have you try to mentally collate them over the years, we thought we’d devote a week to each preoccupation. That way they’ll all be in one place. I have a feeling this isn’t making much sense. However. This week is devoted to redux posts on loving bugs.
This is one of my all-time favorite LWON posts. Guest Brooke Borel is a curious science writer with a deadline, naturally looking for something else to do, finds ants in her kitchen. The result is a Norse epic, a Greek tragedy, an Ibsen play, a story of love and loss, of fall and redemption, and a sudden descent into madness. With video, diagram, and pictures. Just go read it.
