How lovely the irony! A photo of an emblem of freedom, in English and Chinese. Yahoo owns Flickr. Yahoo's assistance helped China convict two journalists for exercising freedom of the press. They are serving ten years each for exercising the freedom the Stranger enjoys every day.

And the Stranger helps out Yahoo with a Slog headline each day and prominent, permanent links to Flickr. It is a comfort that any revenue benefit to Yahoo from this may contribute in a small way to the Yahoo settlement payments to the journalists' families, meant to keep them fed and clothed during their fathers' prison terms.

I just set that as my desktop background here at work.

I shared it with the woman who heads up the Bilingual section of our office. We both appreciated it.
