120 migraines that I photographed (I know I didn’t photograph them all)
Medication costs – $19, 353. (only $127. was non-migraine related) I paid $860. (I would have no life without good health insurance.)
I started photographing myself every time I have a migraine in May 2009 as a way to keep track of how many migraines I had. I used to count the number between doctor visits, but this was the first time I actually counted how many I had in a year. I am sure that I was afraid to see the enormity, which, not surprisingly, is staggering. 100migraines.net draws from these 5.5 years of photos, and now I know that it contains less than a year’s worth
Malcolm X often carried a camera, his way of “collecting evidence,” as Gordon Parks once observed. He relied on photographs to provide the visual proof of Black Muslim productivity and equanimity that sensationalistic headlines and verbal reporting often negated.
Pro-government thugs at Tahrir Square used clubs, machetes, swords and straight razors on Wednesday to try to crush Egypt’s democracy movement, but, for me, the most memorable moment of a sickening day was one of inspiration: watching two women stand up to a mob.
Can’t stop watching/listening to Al Jazeera Live Stream from Egypt. The revolution will not be televised, but it is being streamed and tweeted at least to those of us outside Egypt. I read the paper for perspective and putting everything together from the day before.
BBC calls it Egypt Unrest day # ABC is the only network news as if today has a logo online for the conflict
The New York Times hasn’t named its coverage but the Lede Blog is even active on a Sunday. MSNBC surprised me with how through and well organized its coverage is – link
At the Huffington Post, it is Egypt on Edge

His site led me to a blog he writes for which looks like a good source for news on Palestinian/Israeli conflict: +972
972 is a blog-based web magazine that is jointly owned by a group of Israeli journalists and bloggers. The writers’ goal is to provide fresh, original, on-the-ground analysis and reporting of events in Israel and the Palestinian territories. The name of the magazine is derived from the telephone area code that is shared by Israel and the Palestinian territories.
