While we, like much of the world, hopefully await further developments regarding the health of Ariel Sharon, the Israeli prime minister who apparently suffered a major stroke last night, we must also note the odd photo chose to illustrate the story this morning.

• a drink,
• a cellphone, and
• the hope of looking cool by wearing sunglasses indoors.
