The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

For Pete's sake, how many times do we have to see this photo today?

We get it.  Some kid threw stones (in a most orchestrated manner, I might add) at the Israeli police, and then the Israeli police led him on a chase past a half-dozen photographers.

It's still not newsworthy the 72nd time I see it.

Here's the caption from the AP's version of the photo, since that was the only photographer who artistically discovered that brightening the area around the Israeli police officer heightens the tension in the scene—though I'd suggest that rotating it 90 degrees and changing the colors couldn't hurt.

An Israeli police officer, right, runs behind a masked Palestinian rioter during clashes in the neighborhood of Ras al-Amudin in east Jerusalem, Friday, Oct. 9, 2009. The friction, in which no one has been seriously injured, appears to have been sparked by rumors among Palestinians about an attempt by Jewish extremists to harm the Islamic holy sites in the compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary.
