B.O. bows to the Mayor of Tampa, FL.  In fairness to The One. . .a psychologist friend of mine once observed that I tend to give everyone I meet a little bow upon introduction.  I notice it now every time it happens.  Maybe I was a Chinese peasant in a past life?

  2. I'm willing to give him slack on the bowing thing, but what if George W had done this to her? Isn't it a tad racist to do this to the mayor of Tampa?

  3. Love the ban dihydrogen monoxide petition!
