"Ditto" to Jack. Nice post.
That post was a tack sharp double-truck in Life. Well done. I am eying "The Rose".

Here's a take on the topic from slightly different angle from The New Republic... http://tinyurl.com/ybzcqwq The money quote: "But if we journalists really believe in this mission, we have a Hippocratic-like obligation to at least do no harm."

I'd think cherry pie over-sharpened is better than cherry pie over-saturated, though I've not tasted either. Aren't we past being shocked when people are mean to each other on the web?

These fine shots of Geitner are photos that speak to me of the game photographers play with themselves when they know they are getting a good shot that might speak to the larger story, even when the shot itself doesn't reflect the reality of the situation. It looks to me like Geitner is using the speaker phone, and his distraction makes him look deep in thought and/or worry. For all we know, he was making a dentist appointment. Regardless, the dance between journalist and subject over access and coverage is an age-old one, and Geitner knows the steps - or at least he should, before getting on the dance floor with an expert like Lowy.
