My Fellow Citizens

And here's another perspective on the war. Ben Fry uses information design to bring home the potential number of civilian casualties in Iraq:

“President George W. Bush's announcement of the impending invasion of Iraq is a death sentence for thousands of Iraqi civilians. While nobody can say for sure, 25,000 people is one conservative estimate of the number to die. This works out to three people per letter of his speech, and I created this piece as a way to begin to quantify just how many people that is.”

Sadly, those numbers are starting to mount. (Warning, the photo behind that link is a graphic one. Both sickening and saddening.)
