Bag’s Take-Away:

Two weddings, two wedding pictures taken at inopportune moments (depending on how you look at it).

I have more hope for the couple in front of the tornado.

It’s not the wedding or the bride and groom, it’s their witty, odd placement in the cycle of life.

Bag’s Take-Away:

With Limbaugh in the headlines for misogyny, calling a Georgetown law student a slut and a prostitute for defending medical insurance coverage for contraception, I thought: surely Rush can’t be that screwed up when it comes to women, can he? For an alternate view, I sought out the best visual evidence I could find illuminating how Rush could actually subsume himself to, and honor a woman. The photos I’m drawing from come from an twenty photo online photo album on Rush’s Facebook site, posted a-year-and-a-half ago, titled: “Rush & Kathryn’s Wedding.”
