During these last days of the


administration, what is the point of
protest, satire or any other sort of
rabble-rousing? In assembling this
collection of pictures Ive made over
the last eight years, Im not really
trying to accomplish much at all. But
as President Bush once said, One of
the great things about books is,
sometimes there are some fantastic
pictures.
