I just finished watching the president sign the stealth stimulus bill (with my teevee muted) and it struck me how positively ODD it is that signing ceremonies always involve six or more pens. I know the purpose behind this quirky practice but I'm wonderin' just how one breaks one's signature up into six discrete parts. That must be one of those "learned" skills.
Closing shot: Granted, this is an old, old pic. But have you EVER seen a bigger gaggle of obnoxious, useless people than the above? I mean... EVER?
Update 1540 hrs, in which I answer my own question: Well, yes. Yes, we have.
Sorry, Gentle Reader. How quickly we forget, no?
