I saw this photograph on a moderately conservative bloggers site a few days ago and I found it both endearing and disturbing.
Endearing because of the look in the police officer's eyes. Endearing because PSBO was humble enough to shake the officer's hand. Disturbing because he didn't look at the officer and it seemed almost like a covert action-- the "code" thing. Disturbing because I understand the look in the officer's eyes and it is more than just graciousness it's the "code" thing. Why is the "code" thing necessary....shake the man's hand and look at him....daay-aam!
