This was another of those projects that I feel like I do so well: Take a nicely-written wire story that maybe includes a graphic or two, rip the best nuggets of info out of the story and retell those nut graphs in more visual ways. The lede of the story becomes my intro copy. But most of those copy blocks, pointing to various states and countries? Those had been told as prose. The hardest thing about this page was cutting out the pictures.
