Monday's Trial

Talking about graphics and visuals in lecture last Monday really made this article stand out to me. The computer graphic made shows the different stories that Erickson and Ferguson told. Ferguson, the boy accused of murder in the killing of editor Kent Heitholt, is my age. I don't understand how people can do such things as commit murder. Anyway, the computer map points out all the different locations that the police, Erickson's first story, his second story, and Ferguson's story. It made it so much more interesting to actually see the locations and where they are in regards to one another. The article would have been much more difficult to read without it. They also showed the pictures of the two boys and Heitholt which makes the story more personable I think. The fact that it's a murder trial in Columbia makes the article more interesting to read in itself but the graphics keep the audience attracted.

Just thought I'd let you know about a site where you can make over $800 a month in extra income. Go to this site   MAKE MONEY NOW  and put in your zip code..... up will pop several places where you can get paid to secret shop, take surveys, etc.  It's free.  I found several and I live in a small town!
