What's wrong with this picture?
On page B-6 of today's Vicad is an in-house ad I found unsettling on first glance. I couldn't immediately snap to the reason for my unease ... it's a just a couple dozen words with a generic picture -- two businesslike hands, suit-coat sleeves, crisp dress shirts -- doing a we-have-a-deal clasp. I finally figured it out. Those are left hands in the firm and businesslike grip. I don't know if there's a subtext there, an allusion to sinister times.
