Caption Contest: Win a Copy of Crisis and Command by John Yoo

Caption this:

...and win this:

Crisis and Command, by John Yoo, is the definitive work on the powers of the Presidency, the Constitution and executive actions under crisis conditions. Of it, Victor Davis Hanson writes:

John Yoo has written a masterful review of some 220 years of the use of Presidentiala power in times of crisis. The result is not just that George W. Bush and other recent Chief Executives were not uniusual in issuing executive decrees... but that they were rather tame in comparison to the likes of Jackson, Lincoln and [FDR].

Max Boot adds:

Those who know John Yoo only from the caricature painted by his critics will be gobsmacked to read "Crisis and Command." It is not the work of some wild-eyed zealot bent on waging war on our civil liberties. Rather it is a careful, scholarly examination of the subject of presidential powers viewed through the prism of history... Far from a partisan polemic, it is a careful and measured work of scholarship that will have to be engaged by those on all sides of the issue.

How do you get your own hardcover copy of this incisive work?

Just as her ambrotype photos of Tiger Woods were drying, Annie Leibovitz's doorbell rang. She went to open the door, and there stood the messenger boy from Western Union with a telegram from Heath Ledger's agent. It read: "Dear Ms. Leibovitz (stop) Mr Ledger will not be able to pose for photographs (stop) Very Sorry (stop)".
