Photoshopping Wrongs?

Some Interesting News...



CNet has posted a photo gallery titled "Photos: Pictures That Lie" that is interesting to look through. It shows some well-known photo alterations that have appeared in the news and others that I had not seen before. The gallery certainly illustrates that it's not necessarily paranoid to view media images with skepticism.

Actually a lot of the online news such as Reuters is known for changing images to suit their stories.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
