I've been thinking about the whole Barrack Obama thing again, and it struck me, as a long-time 24 fan, that this show has done more than any other to normalise the idea of a black president to US voters (it has featured two black presidents). This is ironic when you consider that 24 has a reputation of being somewhat right-wing it it's values, and not only that, is a Fox TV show.
Wouldn't it be great if someone invented a camera that you could take into your dreams? I often dream that I'm photographing wild scenes and fantastic landscapes, only to be disappointed when I wake up, to find that the camera in my hands has vanished with sleep. Let's invent a dream camera, so that we can download the results onto our computers?
