Gitmo in Black and White

From Slate Magazine: This week marked the fourth anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. Our partners at Magnum Photos are commemorating the event with an interactive audio slide show about the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay. Photographer Paolo Pellegrin photographed the camp and its prisoners in 2006. The essay also includes photos of released detainees in London, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Afghanistan.

Mandatory recycling in Vancouver?

Friends in Seattle told me recently that their city has mandatory recycling, and that those in violation are fined. The city performs random inspections of people’s garbage to check.

On that note, there’s a poll this week on about mandatory recycling in Vancouver. If the results are strongly in favour, we’re taking our case to city hall. Cast your vote now.
