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.

Someone, somewhere, taught young Barack Obama that thanking someone for a compliment in their own language (in this case, sign language) was kind and polite. He’s too well-mannered to be president.

via YouTube and The Daily What

(caption: Following a speaking event at Prince Georges Community College in Largo last week, President Obama was greeted by a young deaf man who signed “I am proud of you” in ASL. The young man later said he was floored when the president signed back “thank you.”)

Bag’s Take-Away:

“Putting Family First” apparently always means “Putting Family Through it First.” Interesting shot of Santorum with his eldest daughters and wife after losing the GOP Illinois Primary last night. Recalls the famous photo below when Santorum lost his 2006 senatorial re-election campaign in Pennsylvania.

Here’s the thing…..the facial expressions….especially that of his wife. Were they surprised by this outcome?
