Geoffrey Rush of Australia hugs Tom Hooper who picked up the best director gong at the Oscars for The Kings Speech on the cover of USA Today. The newspaper contrasted Oscars glory for the Brits of London with the Wisconsin unionists battle with the State and the Koch Brothers. Heady glitzy glory vs the tension of real people in community at grass-roots living level battling people who work for billionaire interests–not bad news overage-contrasting today.
New York Times stays well away from Oscars being the lead story this year opting to show America’s military face in the Peace Keeping role in the world by The Times choosing to keep an eye on military movements occurring in the world at this time (Libyan rebels get the spot of honor). This news was coupled with American babies not being safe, with levels of radiation for babies being beyond legal levels as these babyograms reveal. Thankfully these pics are from past archives of US medicine. To get these images requires too much radiation, for babies to handle.
Oscars fit for a swan and a king, were front page news too for Natalie Portman and Colin Firth made the cut from California on the cover of The Times.
Everyone in the US is talking about these things today as water cooler talk.
