Ryszard Kapuscinski, RIP

“It’s not that the story is not getting expressed. It’s what surrounds the story. The climate, the atmosphere of the street, the feeling of the people, the gossip of the town; the smell; the thousands and thousands of elements that are part of the events you read about in 600 words of your morning paper.”

- From an earlier interview with the "globetrotting journalist from Poland" who died yesterday at 74.
