A picture is worth a thousand words, but none of them are educational

There are certain iconic images or phrases that have the ability to sum up immense feelings and concepts in a single instant (great examples here).

Even though these intuitive grasp of reality can be extremely subtle, it doesn't make the statement any less powerful or the dichotomy any less glaring.

For instance, the Honduran military has exiled their democratically elected president, Manuel Zelaya, because they didn't agree with a referendum he was putting to a vote. Yet, yahoo has decided to feature a story about Shia LaBeouf and his feelings on the Wii game console.


Sometimes I just don't know what to think.
