Some of you know that I started and maintain the Bayou Writers' Group blog. Yesterday, I received a submission from Dr. Stan Weeber, a McNeese professor who wrote the book In Search of Derrick Todd Lee. I remembered I haven't interviewed Dr. Weeber for Louisiana Saturday Night. I'll have to remedy that. But, back to Flashbulb memories:
From Wikepedia: Flashbulb memories are highly detailed, exceptionally vivid 'snapshots' of the moment and circumstances in which surprising and consequential (or emotionally arousing) news was heard. Flashbulb memories have six characteristic features: place, ongoing activity, informant, own affect, other affect, and aftermath. Flashbulb memories are believed to be highly resistant to forgetting.
Interesting, huh? Go to BayouWriters' Group blog and read more.
