It makes me glad some of you guys weren't around when Nick Ut took his iconic "Vietnam Napalm" photo for the AP.

I'm not sugesting that Chris Allen's shot is on par with that. Certainlyit is not as far as a historical context, but life often is not pretty and neither is death, but sometimes it needs to be seen. Just as that awful day in Sepetember, 2001 when we saw people jumping from the highest floors of the World Trade Center.

I don't *see* the carnage here. I don't consider it gruesome, either. I know there were people in the car when this shot was taken, but I don't see any remnants. This should be here on RP and I'm glad he loaded it.
