Meet Nick Ut, photographer. Born Huynh Cong Út in Long An, Vietnam, in 1951, Ut became a professional photographer for AP while just 16. You have seen his work; this is perhaps one of the world's most famous images. Today, while on assignment for AP in Los Angeles, he took another photo.

Okay, the irony meter is now shattered. Can't measure it any more. NOT going to get a new one (even if it goes to 11 ...or 20 ...or 37 ...or 42).
