photo oddness

OK, the photo referenced in the previous entry appears to have been removed from the list of thumbnails and the progression of war pictures on the Yahoo! News site. The picture is still accessible using the direct URL, but it’s been replaced in the thumbnail table of contents and the photo sequence with a picture of a burning building, so that it’s no longer accessible from those. Dead bodies, looters and burning buildings apparently are fine to show during war, but I guess a picture of one man joyfully (and completely non-sexually) kissing another is just too extreme.
