Sarajevo Newspaper Building

The Inner Prop hit the button on the old Wayback Machine at drill this past weekend. He reminded me of when I was in Sarajevo in the Summer of 1997. The newspaper in town had managed to keep printing throughout the terrible siege - despite their office tower, as you see it here, being knocked down by Serb fire. Next time I hear some American media type bitching about how hard their job is, I may just e-mail them a copy of this photo...

Wow. I'm amazed at the tenacity of some people to work.

Of course, over there, they probably did newspapers to inform people what was going on, compared to here where they do newspapers to make a buck (and to heck with facts).

Thanks for the picture. It's always nice to be reminded how easy we have it here...and how capable we humans are at operating under unpleasant conditions.

Another excellent point of this blog - it gives us civilians a good look at how things are in other parts of the world, a perspective we could otherwise not get. Thanks so much for that!
