Bag’s Take-Away:
 Obama’s decision last week to cease deportation of young “dreamers” was illustrated around the world with photos of crying and happy undocumented young people. A real visual punch. Forces in opposition to Obama’s decision got a different visual treatment, typified by this spider woman shot of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer wearing what looks like blood on her shirt.

Brewer said President Barack Obama represents a “pre-emptive strike” aimed at an upcoming U.S. Supreme Court ruling that could uphold parts of the state’s immigration enforcement law.)

This is a twofer. The opening frame shows the stiffness. If you watch the video, you also get a good look at his contempt.

Now, if I could only find a copy of the mug shot from his defiant boating weekend.

Bag’s Take-Away:
This is one of those photos I would typically pass over: hands and a rosary, prayers for some political cause in front of a government institution. Nothing that new or original about that. 
But in this case, an out of focus figure that must be a guard stands blocking the entrance to the Supreme Court like a blurry and huge set of keys or a shape standing in opposition to the crucifix. What better accidental symbolism for a Supreme Court ruling on Arizona’s draconian immigration law?

Bag’s Take-Away (re: View from the Texas Border):

As my friend, photographer Peter Calvin writes: It’s not exactly the Statue of Liberty welcome…”

(The pic accompanies  an editorial at the Dallas Morning News challenging the narco-war hysteria.)

Bag’s Take-Away:

It’s the picture, and backstory, we’re seeing next-to-none of in the States. On the one hand, Europe to be commended for standing up to Gaddafi at expense of opening up immigrant floodgates. On other hand, how much did Sarkozy’s need to look like a hero in taking on Gaddafi (with his fortunes flagging and elections coming up) set up possible Euro anti-immigrant backlash for years to come?
