The G-20 in London is like sorority rush week


People blame the media for all the doom and gloom, and now finally, the media is giving you a break in the form of G-20 coverage. The pictures I've been seeing of world leaders meeting in London -- hugging each other, cheesing for the cameras, laughing like crazy at each others jokes -- makes the economic summit seem more like the first week of college than a critical meeting of the world's 20 leading economies.

I'm about to give up journalism and become a world leader if this is how much fun they have. Then I remember...oh wait. These are the people charged with stopping the double-asteroid--global financial crisis and global warming--from rendering our planet unrecognizable. That's a tough job, so I appreciate that these suits need a little face time to blow off steam and tension, especially among each other.
