  1. Fantastic. I went through all of them. I couldn't pull away. I got chills from Mugabe and Qaddafi. Thanks for sharing!

  2. What's so interesting to me about this is that I get so much of my news from NPR and podcasts that I have no idea what some of these people even look like. So not only do I get to see these wonderful photographs, but to hear the photgrapher comment on sight personality traits that are not typical of news reports is absolutely fascinating.

  3. you got it, val. it's surprising and sad that NPR is one of the last bastions of real news. no way we are going to hear about Tong or Lithuania or East Timor in the teevee news unless there's been a natural disaster.

  4. This is incredible, mariser. I am going to go through every one of these people, too!It's so fascinating listening to Platon speak of each subject.
