Charlie Haughey shot nearly 2,000 images between March 1968 and May 1969 before taking the negatives home. And there they sat, out of sight, but not out of mind, for 45 years, until a chance meeting brought them out of dormancy and into a digital scanner. At first, it was very difficult for Haughey to view the images and talk about them, especially not knowing the fates of many of the subjects of his photos. When the digitization hit 1,700 negative scans, Haughey put them on a slideshow and viewed them all at once, and didn’t sleep for three days after. He’s slowly getting better at dealing with the emotional impact of seeing the images for the first time in decades.”

We are sad to report that Cal Whipple, a former LIFE correspondent, died on March 17th at the age of 94. Whipple played a huge role in getting this groundbreaking photograph of three dead American soldiers published in LIFE magazine — a fight he took all the way to the White House.
The New York Times writes:

Mr. Whipple and his colleagues at Life believed that Mr. Strock’s photograph would provide a badly needed dose of reality for those on the home front who were growing complacent about the war effort. “I went from Army captain to major to colonel to general,” he recalled in a memoir written for his family, “until I wound up in the office of an assistant secretary of the Air Corps, who decided, ‘This has to go to the White House.’ ”

George Galloway MP - hero of Britain's far left, explicitly condoning rape, live on Twitter!

  • Sarah_Woolley: @georgegalloway Waking up to condomless sex is not my cup of tea either (rape under English law)
  • George Galloway: @Sarah_Woolley but she had condom less sex with him just before she fell asleep.
  • My note: Whether or not Assange is guilty is irrelevant here - Galloway is quite clearly saying if a woman consents once then that consent carries over to when she's asleep. He is an example of a man whose hatred of the West is so ingrained that anti-Westernism is his only moral code, and he has been shown on numerous occasions to throw women, gay people, trade unionists (in Iran etc), persecuted minorities etc under the bus as long as it helps his anti-West agenda. He is evil.
