Did Team Romney alter an image to exaggerate the size of its rally?
Or, as MJ senior editor Dave Gilson puts it:
“Looks like Romney campaign ‘shopped a man in Reno…”


Oh come on now, this is totally just a really terrible panorama. This is a clear case of attributing to malice what can be attributed to incompetence.
It looks every bit like one of those cheapo cameraphone panorama stitchers. The highlighted “cloned areas” very nicely point out the seams where the camera stitched together the four images used to make this panorama.  The only thing the Romney campaign did wrong here was deciding that this terrible excuse for a panorama was worthy of posting to their instagram.

In the first half of a new commercial from Luvs Diapers, a frazzled first-time mom sits alone in a restaurant, struggling to breastfeed her son under a blanket so as not to offend her fellow patrons. Cut to the second half of the clip, and a slightly older and wiser mom is in the same restaurant, this time breastfeeding her second baby in plain view while her firstborn, now a few years older, sits beside her. The shocked waiter can’t take his eyes off the woman’s chest, but the cool-headed and confident mom handles it like a pro, pointing to her face and saying, “Hey, up here.” 

Luvs’ new ‘public breastfeeding is awesome’ ad

This is awesome. Go Luvs!

REASONS TO BE HAPPY
#121:
Ira Glass’s Voice.
Listening to his rhythmic cadence is like taking a long bath (except that’s a bad metaphor for me, since I’ve never been a huge fan of baths). It’s like a relaxing massage, a comforting blanket; it’s like…a reason to be happy!
He just sounds so calm, yet interested; so eager to learn and yet so wise already. It doesn’t even matter what he is saying, except that I makes me want to hear every word—even if I don’t care about the subject at hand. 
I like listening to him on a lazy summer day in the sun, but I also love curling up inside on an awful winter day and letting his verbal gait wander around the space and into my ears.  In fact, he’s kinda like ice cream—so good to have, no matter what the season.

Led by Sens. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), seven Democratic senators and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee are appealing to backers on all of their websites to sign on to the “One Million Strong For Women” in hopes of harnessing the energy displayed in the backlash against Komen.
“The strong public outcry in response to the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s decision to defund Planned Parenthood last week — which they later reversed — shows how powerful we can be when we come together,” says an email expected to be sent Wednesday by Gillibrand’s office and obtained by The Huffington Post.
“Our right-wing opponents continue to launch attack after attack against women’s rights, women’s health, and women’s economic security — and we’ve got to fight back every single day,” the appeal argues.
After Susan G. Komen Debacle, Senators Launch Women’s Rights Campaign

Done and done.  And good on you, Patty Murray.
