Psssst. Nobody Tell Marty that HCR Passed...

Here, ladies 'n' gents, is the editor in chief of The New Republic:

Surprise: "Indonesia Considers Removing Obama Park Statue"

This didn't make news in America. But it certainly made news elsewhere,
and especially in Asia. The dispatch was written by Chris Anderson, associate editor of CNNGo, in which it appeared on January 26.

The image is of "Little Barry," says Anderson, at ten years old. Apparently, 55,000 Jakartans had registered their discontent with the statue on Facebook.

True, it only "made news" in Time magazine, Associated Press, Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post, MSNBC... oh, and a little-known paper called USA Today. Perhaps you've heard of it?

There's got to be someone on staff who's embarrassed by this, yes?
