If you have an hour to kill and you don’t mind being freaked out by all their stories, this multimedia graphic on the Star Tribune’s Web site is absolutely stunning. I’m guessing hundreds of hours of work went into it.
Shootings, baby abuse, rape — I read about it all every day and am pretty jaded. Usually horrible things kind of slide right past me (or I make a tasteless joke about them). But the bridge collapse was on par with 9/11 for me. I couldn’t get the images out of my head for months.
