I really like this news report from India.
Unlike so much American reporting, it cuts through to the raw numbers and portrays through facts, without stating it directly, the ridiculousness of President Obama's visit to India.
I'm not saying Obama is any different from Bush or Clinton in this display of excess.
I'm simply saying that we should reconsider what is "normal" or "obviously necessary" when it comes to a head of state's visit abroad.
And maybe a staffer could suggest Skype.
