who will be next World Bank President What will they do


A picture speaks a thousand words. Many people have sent in a link to a photo of Wolfowitz enjoying some quality time at the White House correspondents dinner at the weekend. It's good that he manages to look so relaxed even when so embattled. The original photo posted by Talking Points Memo is here. And some creative people in Washington have been kind enough to write in with a new version of the photo, complete with blue ribbon.

They explain: "We thought there was something strange about their body language. What's wrong with this picture? So we strategically added a blue ribbon and suddenly it all makes sense".


For anyone who has not been paying attention to all our posts, the blue ribbon is the protest symbol adopted by World Bank staff.
