This week also gave us some sobering news from Japan, and Scott Bourne in his blog (Photofocus) has written a heartfelt article on how the events in Japan have effected the photographic world : http://bit.ly/fudvhh . And this week brought us the sad news that 2 of the best photojournalists working today were killed as they were covering events in Libya. One of them (Tim Hetherington) was so well regarded in his home town of Brooklyn, N.Y. that the flags were ordered to fly in half staff upon word of his passing.  Here's a link with more information on the passing of Tim Hetherington & Chris Hondros from photographer Vincent Laforet: http://tinyurl.com/3wp29fk As we gather together to celebrate your respective holiday, let let us remember those protecting us overseas and at home, unable to enjoy a meal with their loved ones, and those who are risking their lives covering these events abroad. A happy weekend to all, and we hope to see you soon!
