9/11 Special (sale)


There is an entire section in the New York Times today, devoted to the events of 9/11/2001. A Nation Challenged One Year Later.
I hoped that they would not use the page to sell anything. And at first sight there is only a banner for Project Libery, a help line for those who still suffer from the events emotionally.
When we scroll below the fold, however, there is a link to the Shop. Portraits of Grief for $30, or 4 for $100. I know that they are not about to give these books away, (They actually make the information available not far above the ad.) but does everything have to be used to make a buck?


The feature on how the cover photo was taken was interesting for its display of alternative images that were not selected. Frankly, at least one was better than what they went with. And I thought the video of the photographer talking about the aerial photos was interesting, but ultimately a little crass for all the technobabble about exactly which brand of camera he used and what not. Not the time or place for that sort of detail.

i received my issue on my front doorstep today, haven't read it yet...but now, i have to look for these things...
