I Think I May Need... A Little Imagination 

If you haven't seen The Girl in the Café, do.

I thought it was a wonderful little fairytale along the same lines as Lennon's song Imagine – that is until I saw this Reuters news photo. The fact that the 'leader of the free world' has to ask his Secretary of State if it's possible to take a bathroom break somehow makes the naiveté of the movie's character Gina so much less fantastical.

On a practical (and related) note, you can urge your reps to cosponsor the Millennium Development Goals legislation.
