0.1% Political: Please help

Michael Yon is an independent photojournalist who has spent his own money on numerous trips to Iraq to cover the war.

One of his most poignant photos has been taken and used by SHOCK magazine, on its cover, without permission or renumeration to Mr. Yon.

You will recognize this photo when you see it.

Please follow this link:  Michael Yon for the entire story and what you can do to help.

I rarely, rarely post politically-inspired posts, but this means a lot to me.

I now return you to the 99.9% apolitical Emergiblog.

Thanks for reading.

    I’m confused. What’s the political issue, the war or copyright infringement?

    Hiya Flea – I sent this to you via email but thought I’d put it here too:

    That’s what I get for typing when tired – it was the copyright infringement, I’ve just been reading Michael for so long, that I automatically went “political” when I meant he was getting screwed over by a publishing company.

    Thanks for pointing that out!

    Where I got “Family Circus” from, I have no idea.
