Powerful Production About Iraq War

Every once and a while you see something that makes you stop and think. I saw this on the Dallas Morning News site a while back and come back every so often to play the chapters again. This is presented like a DVD movie with the different story elements. This new way of presenting catches my eye because its something people are used to. They don't have to click through all the different links to get to the page. The DMN has its on web page for this story. Its a very powerful story. The paper had all the ducks in a row and had some amazing access. The story is about Cpl. Eric Morante struggle to recover from being wounded in battle and trying to hang on to his Marine life. Click on Cpl. Morante's name to launch the site.

A blend of JFK and Elvis could make a political rock star or just be Sen. Barack Obama

I had the chance to photograph possibly the next President of the United States a couple days ago. Sen. Barack Obama came to town and he had quite the following. They had to set-up overflow rooms for people to hear his speech. He spoke for about 20 minutes then had a question and answer with the crowd. The crowd had the chance to ask questions and the hands shot up like a bunch of fifth graders knowing the answer to spelling cat. "KAT!" Anyways, here is the photo.
