So I was at this presser at midday today, at which Lindsey Graham and Joe Wilson and Steve Benjamin and others had gathered to defend the Pentagon’s budget (more on that when I’ve had a chance to write it) and I was aiming my iPhone around doing what I always do at news events these days — looking for interesting, extremely horizontal images that I could use as a new header image. And as you see at the top of this page, I succeeded. At least, it’s extremely horizontal.
At which point Jeff Wilkinson, who still has a job writing for The State, stuck his face in to say, “What are you doing?”
I showed him, and he said, “You have my permission not to use that on your blog.” Or maybe he said, “You have my permission not to publish that.” Whatever. I’m only sure about the first few words.
Which, I want you to attest, is not the same as saying, “You do not have my permission to use that on your blog.”
And I’m a literal kind of guy.
I’m trying to be very careful with this sort of thing. I don’t want to get into the kind of trouble my fellow blogger is in.
Sorry about the focus, Jeff. But I wasn’t aiming at you…
