Bag’s Take-Away:

Juxtaposition of the Day

In the U.S. women are spoken down to while, currently, in Myanmar, of all places, they reach across to be heard.

Both photos are interesting for the position of women in the photo….I like the first one especially for that and for the fact the flowered bra (the most feminine aspect outside the women themselves) is at eye level for the men speaking down to them.

The second photo is quite lovely for an expression of power and femininity as Aung San Suu expresses her position on a more equivalent level.

Bag’s Take-Away:

Interesting how some candidates treat their disabled children as lucky charms to cart in front of crowds and loft like medals.  (Caption doesn’t go there but Santorum’s 3 y.o. daughter Isabella Maria born with Trisomy 18.) Always wondering why candidates don’t leave their very young or disabled children at home in peace. Is Santorum’s gesture here an act of compassion or campaign badge of authenticity? (And, did Palin set the bar?) 


(photo: Reuters.caption: Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (L) reaches back to rub the forehead of his daughter Isabella Maria, who is held by his wife Karen at a rally to officially announce his candidacy for President of the United States on the steps of the courthouse in Somerset, Pennsylvania June 6, 2011. Santorum launched his long-shot Republican bid for president on Monday, pledging an unflinching commitment to conservative policies, including a Medicare reform plan that has proved unpopular with voters.)
