    Just as with Eddie Adams's famous 1968 photo from the Vietnam War, the images of Derek Chauvin and George Floyd only tell us part of the story. “The god is in the image,” wrote David Freedberg in The Power of Images. But it is a devious god, one that permits our eyes, susceptible to misinterpretation, to tyrannize our capacity to respond coherently to what is in front of us. An image, whether a still photo or an abbreviated video clip divorced from the moments that preceded it, is open to unreliable impressions. It’s also open to propagandistic purposes.A photo...

    A 19-year-old man was shot early Saturday morning at the CHOP. Another man is in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center. Seattle police officers arrived to the scene around 2:30 a.m. after reports of gun shots. They said a crowd prevented them from finding a shooting victim.

(snip) Though we await confirmation of the details of the killing, there are indications that this may have been a right-wing attack. If so, this would not be the first such attack on the Capitol Hill Black...
