Lighten up, yes, we can.

The Christian Science Monitor, on November 20th, published a cartoon by Jeffrey Stahler. It showed a man and woman reading newspapers which are festooned with bad news issues: Another bailout, Foreclosures, Retail Sales Down, Recession, Troops in Iraq, Credit Crisis, Climate Change. All real issues that bear us down. The woman comments: "I think the Obamas should get a yorkiepoo!" Maybe Stahler was saying the woman is a feather-head to seize on what matters less. But maybe Stahler was saying the woman will save their lives.
