Is anyone else irked by some television news accounts that try to find parallels to popular uprisings in the Middle East? If so, you'll enjoy Jon Stewart's opening monologue from Monday nights “The Daily Show” which takes up that issue at about 5:30 in. (The rest of it is worth watching, though.)

It's possible that folks at The Spokesman-Review are a bit sensitive about such lame comparisons because photographer Holly Pickett, a former colleague, has been on the scene in Tunisia, Egypt and now Morocco, and we wouldn't worry quite so much if she were shooting photos in Madison, Wisc.

Obama cast in stone?

When President Obama was in Egypt last week, he came across this hieroglyphic that looked like, well, like him.

Uh oh. If the folks trying to prove Obama can’t be president because isn’t a U.S. citizen because he doesn’t have a real birth certificate find out about this, they’ll have a whole new line of inquiry to set up. See, it turns out he doesn’t have a birth certificate because he was really born in ancient Egypt. They’ll need to check out the papyrus records under the name Kar.
