Walls make better ones!
Two observations about this photo montage, which I just spotted over at Daylife:
And #2: It's nice to see that the impartial press has deemed this an event of sufficiently historic occasion to warrant photographing every single second of it. Apparently, we need to make sure the World knows the historic significance of ...
Wait, what is the significance here, exactly?
The Great Wall of China isn't historically connected to America. We've never had Mongols in our midst, that I'm aware of. And I'm not entirely sure that Barack Obama is the first Son of Africa...-America that has ever visited the Great Wall, either.
So why exactly do we need wall-to-wall coverage again?
Exit question: Will the New York Times be as disappointed with the short duration of Obama's visit to the Great Wall as they were with their favorite Texan?
