Check out this amazing time-lapse video of traffic in Ho Chi Minh City:

Having been there myself a few years ago, I can personally attest that yes, traffic in HCMC is indeed that insane.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Oklahoma) has looked at the photos of Osama bin Laden’s body and has described them on the record.  Based on his account, it seems like pretty gruesome stuff:

In an interview with The Atlantic Wire after he returned from the CIA headquarters, Inhofe described the photos he saw. He said he was shown 15 photos. A dozen of those were taken at the Abbottabad compound and appear to be “taken right after the instant he was shot.” They sound gruesome. They show a massive head wound in the ear and eye. “The brains were coming out of his socket,” Inhofe said. But he said three other photos were taken on board the ship before bin Laden’s sea burial. In these, the body has been cleaned up and Inhofe, who has advocated releasing the photos, said, “It’s much more reasonable to show the public these photos.”

I am a bit of a photography geek and recently came across two excellent photo essays recapping Barack Obama’s improbable quest to win the presidency: this one from the Boston Globe, and this one from TIME Magazine photographer Callie Shell.
