Well, it’s one of the lesser embarrassing ones I’ve seen. Except for the vines growing on them. Via Time , click to enlarge.
On my recent trip to Boston (I loved it there, even more than I did the first time), I took many, many pictures with my brand spanking new iPad (which I also love) camera… mainly because I somehow managed to forget my “real” camera. We did a LOT of walking, and as we did a lot of walking, I did a lot of observing.
What is pictured below was one of many amazing things I saw, especially in contrast to the exquisite, serene beauty of the image I snapped above.
More photos will be coming soon, but what was written in chalk on the steps below was one of the two most gripping moments I had in the two days I spent in this wonderful, awe-inspiring city:
“101 days… Gitmo hunger strike”
” Where is the world… to save us from torture.”

Nearly every report I’ve seen about O.J. Simpson and his latest courtroom antics today has emphasized how much weight he’s gained.
Since I don’t make a habit of telling fat jokes, I’ll just show you a picture of a 65-year-old fat head who I’d call a joke if he weren’t such a disgusting piece of excrement. I know him to be so not only because of his sordid legal past, but also because Mr. Laffy once wrote an HBO show in which Simpson starred, and came home with story after story of what an arrogant sexist he was.
LAS VEGAS (Reuters) – O.J. Simpson, the former football star and Hollywood actor who was famously acquitted of his ex-wife’s 1994 murder, appeared in a Las Vegas court on Monday seeking a new trial on his conviction on a Nevada armed robbery charge.
For someone who could end up serving 33 years in prison for armed robbery, he’s looking mighty cheerful.
You can watch a short video about this story at the link. All I could provide was the screen grab.
This is is the image that flashed into what’s left of my mind as I thought about writing up this week’s Media Bias Sunday Talk scoreboard. It may not even be necessary to put in the effort, because you and I both know every show will feature John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Darrell Issa, or (un)reasonable facsimiles thereof.
And we all know that this is as much about future President Hillary Clinton as it is about current President Barack Obama.
Either way, I Photoshopped that TV screen as a preview to my guest list preview, should I decide to post something about the Sunday shows.
And here’s something else we can anticipate: a future TV screen that will undoubtedly look a little something like this:
At a press briefing today, FBI special agent Richard DesLauriers released photos and video of two suspects in the April 15 Boston Marathon Bombings. The video and images were captured by security cameras near the scene of the blasts. DesLauriers stressed that the FBI requests that the public use only the images released today to help ascertain the identities of the subjects, and that no one should approach the suspects if they are identified.
If you see these guys, “do not act on your own,” said the FBI. Call 1-800-CALL-FBI.
(Laffy Note: I’m getting tweets from people who think the FBI warning, “do not act on your own” was amusing. Are they forgetting about all the gun owners out there?)
The FBI website has crashed.
Here they are, Suspect A and Suspect B who are considered “armed and dangerous”:
FBI on MSNBC:
“Identifying the suspects is our highest priority.”
“They were seen communicating with each other… Second guy with his backpack, carrying something about the size of the explosive device.”
On MSNBC, an expert is saying that the backpack appears as if it could very well have contained the bomb, just from what he sees in the video compilation they’re airing:
“If these are the bombers, you’re looking at bombers at work.”
More details as they come in.
UPDATE via FBI.gov:
