So. Freakin'. Cool.

Jack Shafer (my very favorite media critic) has a great column in Slate today about how newpaper layouts used to be in the time of Joseph Pulitzer. Full color, with images telling a story and whetting your appetite for text, rather than the scattered images in today's layouts.

This one of a submarine encountering a whale is, frankly, kickass, so I thought I'd share.

Indeed, the article itself is great, so check it out.

"Pay out, Mother. Pay out! There she sounds through the window!"

Gil, if you happen to read this, I expect this full scene to be tattooed on your back once you're done with the bison.
