I hadn't even realized how much pictures like this one have been part of my nightmares for the past years, and to see them in a newspaper, not on a movie screen, is one of the most terrifying things I could have imagined. I always expected this particular catastrophe to happen suddenly, and instead it's a slowly developing story with contradictory information and a devastating sense of a constant and escalating failure of safety precautions, and a series of mornings with this odd little moment before opening the first news site, expecting that one devastating headline that will later be the point that distinguishes the before from the after.
