When the news becomes abstract, we turn to the Big Picture’s slideshows to help us GET what is really going on. We recommend their current slideshow of the flooding Mississippi: at once frightening, heartbreaking and beautiful.

We include this video of Johnny Cash singing “Five Feet High and Rising” (which we found via Constant Siege’s recent post on the flood). To listen while you look at the pictures, start the video then click here to open The Big Picture in a new page (the link at the top will as well).
