Bag’s Take-Away:
Beyond “a down payment,” this piece of shrapnel collected from Gaddafi’s compound last night (courtesy of a Western sortie), might as well be a cruel companion to the sculpture out front crushing the U.S. fighter jet.

Now, THAT’S how you pull apart Ghaddafi. The scarecrow “twisting in the wind” — as the famous political phrase goes.
(In using “hope” in the title, by the way, notice how Blitt makes an allusion to Obama, and leadership done right.)

Not sure why TIME persists on making a funny out of Ghaddafi while people are being slaughtered.  TIME Photo is stocked with the most talented and professional photo people. Is this pressure from corporate for cheap clicks? 
Once you stop guffawing over the (Arab stereotyped tent-dweller’s) color-coordinated fly swatter, here’s my post last week on their “Muammar’s crazy clothes” slideshow.

Bag’s Take-Away:
At first, I couldn’t see photog Christopher Morris in Libya, his style so wonderfully satiric and dark. But Ghaddafi is actually great material for him, especially this shot combining humor (“insane dictator as merch”) and a wistfulness over the fragile hopes of Libya’s youth.
