Sunny Baghdad

Ever since I was a kid I've been fascinated by the technical intricacies of disasters. The latest news of the Colombia accident has an eerie, familiar ring to it: An unfortunate sequence of events. Avoidable, perhaps. Foreseeable, no.

I was watching the weather report in Baghdad and they super-imposed bright orange happy little suns over they map to show how hot it would be. As they zoomed over the map to each city each one got a happy little sun right on top of the city. It looked little atom bombs.
