If, at the time of your death, you wind up on the cover of Time Magazine, or any magazine for that matter, with a giant red “X” drawn across your face it’s probably a good bet you made a few questionable life decisions.
Via: TIME is releasing a special issue on Osama bin Laden’s death — and we’re putting it up in lights.
On Monday evening, TIME’s cover lit up the Nasdaq screen in Times Square in Manhattan. The cover features bin Laden’s face covered by a red “X.” This image has become iconic after its use with Hitler, Saddam Hussein and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The bin Laden cover was illustrated by Tim O’Brien, who also designed the cover featuring al-Zarqawi.
