Remembering Capa April 18, 2007
I've been thinking about Capa today. Reaction across the web to the cell phone video of police outside the building where the Viginia Tech massacre took place made me think about Capa. Then about Germany in 1965, and the way I decided to lay around Frankfurt, getting high and making love, instead of going to Vietnam as a stringer for the Houston Post, even after A went there. And about how R tried to talk me into going to Nicaragua with him when his marriage was on the rocks. But I had just met S, so I stayed in Austin.
