    Jeff, I’m very interested in your answer to this question, as a journalist. I notice that in the photo above, you have included pictures of various people enjoying their drinks at this cafe. Surely you did not ask them if they wanted to be included on a well-trafficked blog. In the age of facebook and camera phones and instant-posting, is it okay to use people’s images without their consent? It has obviously become standard practice in numerous areas, but is it ethically okay? Do you consent these days to having your likeness posted on the Internet just by leaving the house? I’m not criticizing the fact that you have done this – everyone else does it too, including myself – but I am very curious about your views on this issue.

      i have no problem with it, DG. Photos have been run forever of fans at ballgames, people voting, eating, etc without permission. It’d be one thing if they were snorting crack AND eating … but otherwise, I think it’s fine.

    That’s my picture in the upper right hand corner and I did NOT give you permission to publish it on your liberal blog. Please remove it at once or you will receive a cease and desist letter from my attorney!!!!!!!

    There seems to be a trend in that all or most of the writing venues you frequent have nasty bathrooms.
