Snubwatch: We’ve found some photos that don’t include Sarkozy!

by

Uproar in France, where the New Yorker’s (perfectly ordinary) collection of head shots of world leaders in this week’s issue does not contain a photo of Nicolas Sarkozy. Incredibly, this seems to have been Sarkozy’s idea. The photographer was taking pics at the UN general assembly this autumn. Sarko waved him away, proclaiming — I have a very hard time believing this, but so far nobody has denied it — “I hate photos!”

Also not in the photo spread: Stephen Harper. So far no uproar in Canada. We’ll keep you updated on this fast-developing story.
