Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday (WW) is a visual blogosphere phenomenon. Whereas blogs (web journals) are primarily about "words" bloggers love to dress their journal entries with imagery. WW is a simple blog post featuring a photo which conveys a message that speaks for itself without using words.


Jackie and JFK ride through a mid-October blizzard of ticker tape in Manhattan's famed "Canyon of Heroes," three weeks before election day, 1960. Kennedy won New York with 53 percent of the vote to Nixon's 47; the margin of victory in many, many states across the country, however, was far smaller than that.
