  The beauty of selective memoryPDF files may take a moment to load

Accompanying the September 11 attacks was an unprecedented demand for visual information that the media has more than accommodated.

Ever had a professor who has had a real effect on you? You know, one who tells a story that causes a sardonic smile to cross your face at 8:35 on a Tuesday morning in Political Theory. Or the one who helped you finally make sense of Synthetic
