Is anybody else bummed out at the passing of Rodney Dangerfield? He was only moderately successful at generating big laughs, but he was so endearing. He could have easily inspired pity instead of fondness with the direction his self-deprecating humor took, but he had mastered it. There was nobody else like him.

He died? Weird, I hadn't heard yet.

His jokes were never funny to me, and many were sexist besides.

He'd been in what amounted to a stupor or coma for some time now.

And, for the record, I liked his humor, always bearing in mind the time and place it came from.

His movies, on the other hand, are crap even when compared to actual, organic crap.

Obama's 2012

This album probably won't be your thing if you dislike Obama. But if you do like the man, or are just interested in fly-on-the-wall photographs of what it's like in the White House and on the campaign trail regardless of the administration's policies, a best of 2012 set has collected the consistently excellent work of the official photographers who quietly document Obama's every working day.
