NY times Op-ed Challenge: Terrorism Roulette

Here is another challenge I gave myself from the NY Times Op-ed page- this time it was on an article about the recent mail-bombs caught in- transit to the U.S. and how they symbolize us pretty much winning the lottery for about the third or fourth time this year when you consider last year's christmas attack attempt and other failed plots. The article also addresses how the U.S. reacts to attacks, pointing out how we tend to overreact in comparison to our European cousins.

I turned this idea into a sort of "Roulette of Death", with the ball teetering towards the U.S. flag this time around. I also worked on condensing my color choices and line usage. I'll keep working on these, and hopefully you will be able to see them in print sometime soon!
