Barack and Michelle, freewheelin'

Proof that our world has already been destroyed and replaced by a virtual construct: the New York Times front page photo of President Obama and the First Lady is a duplicate of the cover photo of Bob Dylan's "The Freewheelin'". This same image was used in "Vanilla Sky" (remake of "Abre los ojos") to suggest that Tom Cruise's character was being fed artificial memories based on popular culture references. Neo, this is loco.

Now that you mention it, the man on the left does look a bit like a VW van as well...
