My first take on the Jakes lectern photo is that it looked like he was struggling to be seen (heard?) over the forbiddingly high lectern, like his head was straining upwards. It made it look to me like he was drowning behind it-- the patterns in the white stone resembled the foam of swirling water. Maybe the photo was put on the wire because it suggested a very direct empathy between him and the victims? That Bushco. needed a spokesman who was *really* in touch with the tragedy, even symbolically, since the administration was (rightly) castigated for being so far out of touch?
