CNN on Clinging, Sharon's and Others'


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 CNN.com chose to illustrate the story this morning.

The shtick of showing a Haaretz front page, we get that. But the motley crew surrounding the paper? While Sharon is "clinging" to life, they're clinging to:

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

Feh.
