...And Bag News Notes has an interesting photographic discussion of our memories (well, Jim Nachtwey's, anyway) getting darker over time, and whether that's ethical.
Of all the sets on their site, I like the "straighter" 2001 versions better in almost every case. See what you think.

Featured Comment by Hugh Crawford: "The weather on 9/11/2001 was what they call severe clear, i.e., super clear sky and as eye-searingly bright of sun as you can get in September. Any photos that show it as dark are just plain wrong. I live close enough that I could hear the second plane hit, and bits of paper and dust were falling for three days after. Friends who walked home from ground zero were covered in pure white. For a long time really clear fall days made me anxious.
"Oddly enough the two tornadoes we had on Saturday made way for a crystal clear skies today."
