ex machina

o.k. i can't help it. i feel i must post something about that disturbing photo. as usual salon comes out of the gate quickly with a piece that comments on the juxtoposition of that photo with photos from later that day:
"But the new photos can't make what Reno did right, just like the brutal pictures of the raid didn't make her wrong. (If imagery was ever enough to justify federal action, the home videos of Elián defying his father would have been grounds for his removal by any means necessary.) The attorney general had the law on her side, even if the early war of images went against her. I admit I flinched Saturday morning, but I'm glad that this time Janet Reno did not. "
a few people on metafilter are also discussing the photos.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
