Pictures and Lies · I was pok­ing around the Web to­day and in the space of a min­ute, ran across two com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent pic­tures that made me shake my head and think “That’s a lie.” Here they are.

In par­tic­u­lar, if you have a lit­tle boy that you love, be care­ful; 2003 was a year that ter­ri­ble things hap­pened to lit­tle boys and pho­tog­ra­phers were there. For more cheer, skip down to the na­ture cat­e­go­ry, es­pe­cial­ly the lake-view of Chicago; re­al­ly al­most be­yond be­lief.
