This photo — used on the 12 July cover of the new Christian Science Monitor magazine — is one of the ugliest pictures (not featuring creatures in distress) I’ve seen, since the Kuwaiti oil field vandalism by Iraq prior to the first Gulf War.[I was too lazy to try to track down the source photo. . . ]
Got ambition and looked it up !
and here’s the cover treatment
PS — I don’t think we learned squat from the spill. I learned all I need to know about venality and stupidity a long time before BP or AIG or Enron etc etc etc. . . . . .
ok, the photo and the cover are not identical but the ugliness is. . .
