Quite the mixed bag today. First, I found this at the library last night while looking through children’s books:

I was looking for books for my kids, and I found this book, and as I started to flip through it I found that I was pretty shocked that there would be a book with socialist overtones geared toward kids in my library. Now, I also thought through the fact that some people have this same reaction when a Christian book geared toward children is also in the library (I had skimmed Bearenstein Bears’ and the Big Question earlier in the same trip). That didn’t make it any less shocking and I’m beginning to see that other competing ideas are now becoming more blatant in their placement– it’s becoming more real.

President Obama was recently over in Russia, and while there and visiting Russian leaders, the following awkward situation happened:

This is a disgraceful way to treat the head of a foreign country.  The way that the shake hands with the Russian president behind him shows that they were doing this on purpose.

I don’t know that I’ve read a reason why, but this should have been something that was in our newscasts, because he’s represents us.

I agree with what Leticia said in comments below, it’s not a snub, it’s an introduction.  It’s a good example of seeing what you want to see (and believing sources!) rather than being critical yourself.
