Not Cool

Remember after OJ Simpson's arrest, when Time darkened its cover image of him? It was a journalistic low point for Time, a magazine that keeps probing the limits of "low point".

I just hope that the Washington Times didn't do the same thing with this mug shot of President Obama's uncle. It was taken after his recent arrest for drunk driving.

Anyway, I won't jump to conclusions. I have no evidence that the image was manipulated; heck, maybe this is the image the police provided. Regardless, it is pretty dark; so I took the liberty of lightening it up some. No Mr President, no thanks are needed. I'm happy to contribute.
