This Week Online: Obama's emotions, Long-term Volunteering, and a Requiem for St. Vincent's

This week our online exclusives include content from several America editors. In our podcast, Web Editor Tim Reidy and I talk about my year of volunteer service on the Navajo Reservation through the Mercy Volunteer Corps.

Associate Editor Kevin Clarke spoke with Sister Jane Iannucelli, S.C., about the closing of St. Vincent's Hospital, and produced a slideshow with photos from Catholic News Service, the Sisters of Charity New York and Jeremiah's Vanishing New York.

And in our video feature, James Martin, S.J., discusses the media's infatuation with President Obama's emotional response to the oil spill in the gulf.
