I disagree that it's that simple. The uprising began as, largely, a protest of the populace. It changed in size and composition as time passed.

Additionally, the sources I read say that ISIS didn't adopt that name until 2013. So how can "this purely political movement that even then called itself "ISIS"" be accurate?

Interesting. That was part of the fisherman's story, the only part that I thought (sans research) sounded plausible at the time of writing. There goes that idea.

Wow, good observation. I didn't even notice that there was a problem with that one side. (Maybe I'm missing an eye too and I didn't notice that either.)

I didn't say the skyline is reflected. The skyline is in silhouette. A shadow of the buildings. But the sunlight on Lake Michigan creates a reflection enabling the camera to see the shadow. So this shot is of a reflection, thus it belongs in this group of photo captures of reflections.

A physicist illustrated the multiple perspectives of the image. It is a shadow cast on Lake Michigan, the reflection of which was caught by Hersch from his window seat on an airplane. He took the shot with his iPhone. So it is a reflection. Of a shadow.

All interesting comments. Thank you all, particularly for the L.A. Times article.

While I will do practically anything to avoid going into a Walmart, I agree that a lot of the "WalHate" is arbitrary and could be appropriately applied elsewhere for the same "violations."

Aww! I didn't think of that. Probably because I didn't want to. It's just cuter to think he's playing with his toy. But if it's an "amorous" type of play, I'm surprised that the staff member of the animal park who keeps answering commenters' questions on YouTube hasn't labeled the behavior as such.

I understand your uneasy feeling. You have a point. There was a story about a baby in Ohio getting mauled and killed by his relative's dog just a few days ago.
