The upside of John Winston Howard's return to public life.
I made a real effort not to follow the story in Boston too closely when it broke. I scanned what little was known, and then quickly withdrew into deadline because the mounting derp and horror were kind of derpy and horrible.
Before retreating I did have an interesting conversation with some other journos about the graphic images coming through the net. The sort of things which have always arrived in newsrooms after these events, but which are rarely, if ever published.
I honeslty wondered if people wanted that sort of graphic coverage. Apparently many do, because they were self publishing it.
Anyway, I thought I'd try work through those thoughts at Blunty.

It surprised me to learn a decade had passed since the invasion of Iraq with only a couple of interesting columns and blogs really noting it. Thought perhaps I should add to that. The war itself has been thrashed out all over, but I got to thinking about the mass psychology of going to war, and the role the media plays in that.
