Today Feb. 27 on page A3 of our excellent award-winning Local Fourth Estate (which shall remain nameless for reason soon evident) above an article about budget cuts is a color photo of speaker Obama shown gesturing in front of a ship's propellor, captioned "BUDGET BATTLE: Standing in front of a ship's propellor, President Barack Obama gestures as he speaks..........," that set me (an erstwhile writer myself) into paroxysm of laughter.

But maybe it's just me, thought I. So I asked my Better Half, who is much smarter than I, to read it, whereupon she replied, "Well, what am I supposed to see?" I replied of course, "No, I can't tell you, too embarrassing."

So is it just me?


With hope for just a little more levity on the Ed. Page

@dalehileman,
It's totally lost on me. I see no link to what you're writing about nor can I intuit from the context what you find odd or funny.

@Ragman,
hell no. Whenever anyone only posts something that is amusing to just them, Id call that narcissism.

@farmerman,
Narcissism is its own reward.

However, in Dale's case, I think he just lost track ... somewhere along the line.

As your resident narcissist I can testify to that

But also I recall another instance a while back: "Dog, name Spot, chases cat, Princess; Spot to the left and Princess to the right, both running"
