The Big Question, posted today on The Atlantic. On a side note, the magazine's photo column, by Alan Taylor, recaps some of the best photographs of the week.

I thought about this before I clicked the link. For me it's got to be - by some margin - Nick Ut’s photograph of Phan Thị Kim Phúc. It turned public opinion the day it was published. Unlike the photo the article selected - which struck awe in all that saw it - but did it influence behaviour and opinion? I don't think so.
