Improving copy by copy

The New York Times has published another graphic about last year american soldiers casualties in Iraq. An improved version of the controverted graphic published by themselves and The Independent.

At the end, copy by copy the graphic has improved. I don't know if The New York Times ever knew about the graphic published by The Independent, but they have seized the details that the english paper used to make the graphic more easily understandable: the color. Trtuth is that this data (casualtis by date at the last year) are easier to organize, but, in my opinion, color has given the graphic a new dimension, creating another information layer in such easy and basic way. Simple ideas. They work.
