Strange how the only thing this newscast says is that the delegates need to be protected. Certainly they need to be protected from physical harm. But do they need to be "protected" from mere criticism?

I took this photo of some smoothies on a trip to Spain with my mom in 2007.  I uploaded it to my Flickr (with open source license), and it has had over 30,000 views from around the world, and has been used by zillions of websites (some with, many without, credit).
