UPDATE: To clarify, the people on the photo below are not my family. I took it from a newspaper. I do not know a single individual in the picture, and they don’t know me, I’m pretty sure. Please don’t have them.
A while ago I commented on pictures of Bay Area residents partying in Cuba that were appearing in a local paper under the heading “The Sun Shines Everywhere”. I commented on the politics of local media:
Me and DH were talking about what goes on in that section. I thought that perhaps Alameda Sun publishes just about any picture that readers care to send in because they can’t possibly have that many submissions. DH suggested a way to test out that theory. Next time we are in Israel, take a picture with IDF soldiers next to the Wailing Wall. Send it in, see what happens.
But, hey, what do you know, this image comes from the latest issue:
“Jerusalem, Israel”? I mean, me and Mitt Romeny, we know that Jerusalem is in Israel, but the IOC doesn’t. It could be an editorial oversight. And the head of a certain avid letter writer is guaranteed to explode.
