Brilliant News Graphics

Megan Jaegerman's brilliant news graphics. They explain things so clearly you can understand them immediately. Now I know what those figure skaters are doing, and the cost of pets, psychotherapy, and 4th of July picnics.

Megan Jaegerman produced some of the best news graphics ever while working at The New York Times from 1990 to 1998. Her work is smart, finely detailed, elegant, witty, inventive, informative. A fierce researcher and reporter, she writes gracefully and precisely. Megan has the soul of a news reporter, who happens to use graphs, tables, and illustrations--as well as words--to explain the news. Her best work is the best work in news graphics.

Remarkable graphics. She really did do a great job with them. I can remember seeing a lot of them in print as that was just as the internet really started to take off and I read the Sunday Times on a regular baisis. Cool stuff about the handguns too...

That's good to know. All the criminals that read the times will change the way they walk so you can't tell they're packing. I will continue to walk normally, so they know I'm packing.

Back at you whore monger...

Top 10 Ridiculous Democrat Quotes on Health Care

1. “I don’t want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them just to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess. I don’t mind cleaning up after them, but don’t do a lot of talking.” -- President Obama at an August 6 at a rally in Virginia

2. “They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care.” -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in an August 5 interview

3. “What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?” -- Rep. John Conyers (Mich.) at the National Press Club, July 24


4. “These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views -- but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American.” -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (Md.), writing in USA Today, August 10

5. “The last time I had to confront something like this was when I voted for the civil rights bill and my opponent voted against it. At that time, we had a lot of Ku Klux Klan folks and white supremacists and folks in white sheets and other things running around causing trouble.” -- Rep. John Dingell (Mich.), on MSNBC

6. “What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics.“ -- Rep. Brian Baird, (Wash.) told a local newspaper

7. “The last time I saw well-dressed people doing this, was when Al Gore asked me to go down to Florida when they were recounting the ballots, and I was confronted with the same type of people.” -- Sen. Barbara Boxer (Calif.)

8. “I hope people will take a jaundiced eye to what is clearly the Astroturf nature of so-called grassroots lobbying ... The Astroturf nature of grassroots lobbying, which is largely the term for, you know, this is manufactured anger.” -- White House spokesman Robert Gibbs

9. “Republicans and their allied groups -- desperate after losing two consecutive elections and every major policy fight on Capitol Hill -- are inciting angry mobs of a small number of rabid right-wing extremists funded by K Street lobbyists to disrupt thoughtful discussions about the future of healthcare in America taking place in congressional districts across the country.” -- Democratic National Committee communications director Brad Woodhouse

10 (tie). “These are nothing more than destructive efforts to interrupt a debate that we should have, and are having. They are doing this because they don’t have any better ideas … It’s really simple: They‘re taking their cues from talk-show hosts, Internet rumor-mongerers and insurance rackets.” -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.)

“Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute.” -- Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.), responding to a town hall participant
