"...hundreds of stone-throwing protesters took to the streets here Thursday...beating back government guards to storm and destroy a museum dedicated to the Halabja attack..."
There is something about this image taken by Johan Spanner / Polaris for The New York Times I haven't been able to figure out.
Is it that the Iraqi man holds an office chair? Is it a signal of how a forced democracy will never work?
I don't know.
This image is everything I'm not. This image does not need to be understood. This image is a story of how to throw a chair. This image is heartbreaking. This image is exciting. This image is the sign of a story that did not change.
I wonder if there is any difference between corporate America and the man in this picture. I wonder if there is any difference between the two of us. I wonder how many broken office chairs it will take. I wonder how soon before I throw a chair. I wonder if I will run for office only to throw a chair.
