That DID look like Sal, didn't it? Was it Sal? Did he get the shot.

I thought I saw Sal Di Marco ducking as the cameras went by.  Were you 
there, Sal?  It is certainly a moving ceremony.  Nancy was a very 
supportive and loyal wife.  The tentative touch of the casket was a 
decisive moment, unplanned but very, very moving.  I wish I had been
but it was almost enough to see it on TV.  We don't see enough moments
true emotion these days and the difference between those and politically

planned "photo ops" and "sound bites" is very obvious.  I wonder
about our responsibility as photographers to the cynical view that the 
media portrays of American life.  Perhaps all photographers and
should live for a few years under a dictatorship to have a basis for 
comparison. The current trends are very, very scary.  We should all go
NYC and photograph in the subways at every possible opportunity.
