That something as simple as a good photograph can increase the likelihood of an abandoned dog being adopted is well documented.

Emily Tanen had witnessed the effects of a professional photoshoot on an unwanted dogís chances first hand during her time at the Manhattan branch of Animal Care and Control of New York City, when she took it upon herself to upgrade the shelter operatorís disposable camera to her own $1,500 Nikon, only to see the number of rescued dogs increase.

Hired as a liaison between ACCNYC and the groups that rescue shelter animals, Tanen says she was eventually fired for going out of her way to take better photos of pit bulls in a last-ditch effort to save them from being euthanized.

A depressing news story that's also about the reporter's own feelings about writing depressing news stories.

Quote
The letter on my desk was from a family, a husband and wife. They had written to me after reading a short news article Iíd done about a 26-year-old convicted child molester who had been arrested that week and charged with raping a 14-year-old girl. The girl was their daughter. She had been raped by the man two months earlier but had been locked away in juvenile detention for more than a monthólonger than her attacker had been in custody.

It's still weird to me when I read an article online and see stuff about Ciavarella. That guy was like the bogeyman for us growing up around here. Everybody always said "If you get in trouble, do whatever you can to make sure you don't end up in front of Ciavarella." I had friends sent away for accidentally bringing a pocket knife to school, first offense graffiti, stuff like that, pretty commonly.

That article killed me. It was hella depressing in its own right, but I read like 20 depressing articles a day. But man that was way too close to home.

The U.S. Senate passes a bill that would make it possible to detain American citizens without trial.  This is in spite of the Secretary of Defense and the Director of the CIA and a bunch of other national security officials saying that they don't want this.

Americans, your country is fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked

(Apparently Obama has promised to veto the bill, but who knows?  It's still a pretty fucked world that has the USA is relying on a presidential veto to not turn itself into a police state.)
