I love the cover of this week's New Yorker, entitled "Vetting," by Barry Blitt. Interestingly, Blitt is also the infamous cartoonist behind the previous controversial terrorist fist-jabbing cover ("The Politics of Fear" from the July 21 issue).
For this week's piece, Blitt drew Barack Obama "vetting" various dogs as he attempts to select the "first" puppy. Interesting, vetting also means to "submit an animal to examination by a veterinarian." Quite clever.
