The Picture That Made Me Famous Around the World

Despite the fact that it is the most unflattering picture of me ever taken, it looks like this is how I will be immortalized forever. The picture was made famous by being published on the front page of every major newspaper (and a few major magazines) in the free world (example) during the 2000 Presidential election controversy (another example).

And I just found out (while narcissistically Googling myself) that the guy who took the picture for the Associated Press (AP), Michael DiBari, even won an award for it. Good for him!

Man, I never thought I would be applying the "activist lunacy" and "ego" tags in the same post!
