So CNN has posted a 3D graphic about the extent of the damage in NYC. It’s really quite impressive/apalling. I say both as the cold observer in me enjoys the sheer spectacle of human engineering failing, the power of rubble to do further damage, while the emotional core in me is horrified at the extent of the damage, and is further amazed that the death toll is so low, really.
It’s funny, that both reactions are really kicking in now that I’ve seen this pleasant, brightly colored graphic, which I find much more affecting than crass, flashy TV-coverage. Maybe it’s like the difference between a good book and a good movie. I’ll take the book any day because it leaves so much more to my imagination.
