The Man Who [Told] the World

I've always been the kind of person that likes to look at life from different points of view. Occasionally, I find people who like to show them to me. The latest eye-opener has been Current TV's program, Vanguard. What a great show! They are putting together stories about things that I never knew about or that have been overlooked by the mainstream media and treating them with the care and attention that they deserve. To get a taste of what they're up to, check out this video in which one of their correspondents gets waterboarded!

Craziness! Another, albeit much less serious, view of our modern world comes courtesy of Sophie Blackall, an artists from Brooklyn whose creations are based on the missed connections she reads on the New York craigslist. Check out here art here.
