OK. It was going to be a simple assignment at the White House. The President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, and his wife were in town for a visit with our President. Easy enough. Show up and photograph the short press conference, send the photos to ZUMA and head home.

I did not spend as much time working for a great photo as I probably should have, but I thought this image was kind of funny.
The protesters, with stopinfantcircumcision.org, are planning to lobby Congress & petition the Supreme Court to put an end to what they are calling the outdated, unnecessary and inhumane medical procedure.
At least in a time of record unemployment, two wars, poverty, cancer, AIDS, homelessness and countless other things that need our attention we have time to demonstrate against a true scourge on humanity.
