NYT photo by Mr. Chin

Not From Nuzi, I thought the photo a reminder of a theft that sparks a who-dunnit and the woman is being offered a reward (as many of the prisoners of Gitmo were sold to US according to recent press sources, for $5,000 to $8,000) for further information. She shuns the idea and points the little boy at the soldier by his behind, trying to remind him he was once like him, bare-ass naked poor. Ironically, Gitmo is just around the corner from Christopher Columbus' Cape Maysi, which he discovered and where the infamous American yacht "Wanderer" which took slaves from Africa in 1858, and landed on Jekyll Island, Georgia in 1858, (Wikipedia) even visited by a British blockade officer, sank in a storm after the American Civil War, involved in the fruit trade. It was built in Setauket, NY and outfitted with water tanks for the trans-Atlantic crossing in Port Jefferson, NY. Posted by: George Myers | June 7, 2005 06:08 PM
