There's a little contest going around in the press.  $100,000 for any  
photographer who gets "the" photo, him smoking a cigarette.  Too  funny.

Dear CR,

always impressed be your dignified contributions...

however, mine, as usual, is more down to earth:


Candidate Obama, sticking his Nicorette  gum on the back of  Hillary 
supporter Mendez --
if he REALLY did (looks like it -- someone  wrote: "where did it go?"), that 
wouldabeen be a gangsta thing to  do!

Just imagine the little guy trying to get  off his chair

Love him for it,
takes balls!

Har  Har!!

At the very end, in the rear  shot, you can clearly see the the wad on 
Menendez' right  shoulder!
He did it all right --- Obama  rocks!!
