There’s a lot of odd Photoshopping going on with the now-iconic photo of U.S. officials being updated on the bin Laden raid. But this one by Di Tzeitung, the ultra Orthodox Hasidic Jewish newspaper, might just take the prize.

Yep, those are big dark smudges where Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Counterterrorism Director Audrey Tomason should be. The officials were wiped from the picture in line with the newspaper’s editorial policy of never publishing pictures of women, because they could be considered sexually suggestive.

The paper could potentially get in trouble, because the official photo was made available for reprinting under the condition that “the photograph may not be manipulated in any way.” Here’s the original, for those who have been living under a rock for the past week.

First, I think it's very commendable to know that you were able to keep away from sugar for one whole year. I definitely have a love/hate relationship with sugar, but mostly that relationship tends to desire foods that are loaded with sugar that is hidden very nicely in an array of desserts that my palate desires, as opposed to adding those fine particles myself. I'm fully aware of the addictive qualities of sugar - I've tried to kick it to the curb on multiple occasions, but I always come up short. I really do believe in the out of sight, out of mind mentality (keeping dessert out of the house) but when one has a significant other that doesn't want to get on the same game plan, what does one do? If you have a significant other, how were you able to get that person on board with your plan of staying off sugar for one whole year? Being a parent is one thing, but being a partner is completely different.


okay great, but how does she feel after one year? did she get a medical examination before and after? did it affect her appearance ?
