Pictures tells stories–lots of them. In yesterday’s New York Times, filmmaker Errol Morris asked the chief photo editors of several news agencies to choose photographs that most accurately captured the essence of former president George W. Bush. The answers reflect the history of the last eight years. There are images of Bush the Hero, Bush the Dolt, Bush the Compassionate Conservative, and Bush the Tool, and Bush the Generous. Which is the real Bush? That’s a Rorschach Test that we invite you to take. Go the article here. You’re welcome to let us know which image comes closest to capturing the Bush you think history will remember.–David Schonauer
