We have run this photo before but we are rerunning it so that we can put this copy into the new Smirking Chimp column on Friday morning.

The same column will run but with different accompanying photos in the blog section of Bartcop and in Op Ed News.

All these should be posted by 11 a.m. PST Friday Jan. 27, 2012
