Something more for journalism students to think about.
Fifteen years ago today, I left Philadelphia to cover the Oklahoma City bombing. Investigators check the damage to the Murrah Federal Building one day later, in the top photo, and 10,000 residents gather for a memorial service several days later, seen in the bottom photo.

Two red-tailed hawks have chosen to build a nest on a window ledge at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. A webcam is now trained on the nest, feeding a live view, waiting to see what may happen next.
More information about the nest and the hawks is available at The Franklin Institute.
