This is a picture I did not take

of a uniformed police officer sleeping in his squad car with its siren lights flashing, the cop's cruiser parked in the middle of an overpass that crosses a major metropolitan freeway, beneath which President Barack Obama's motorcade was scheduled to pass -- the motorcade rolling from Air Force One into the city for Obama's scheduled speech at a convention of injured war veterans, while the cop sat in his air-conditioned squad car in the middle of overpass traffic, overseeing the public's safety and the safety of the American President, all while sleeping.
