Prude New York Times Blows Chance For Killer Internet Slideshow

Sunday's paper includes a fascinating Style section think-piece entitled "The Facebook Skeletons Come Out" about all of the 2010 politicians with embarrassing photos floating around online. "I think all of us know that politicians would have to confront the Facebook skeletons in their closet, but that it would be in 20 years, not in two years," said technology expert Anil Dash. Unfortunately, because of high "standards" (or something), the Paper of Record provides only one of the offending visuals! And it's a tame one. So here, enjoy!

Some of Mr. Duffy's youthful indiscretions that were captured on film and dredged up by his opponents included a drunken toga party and images of him dancing on a pool table in his underwear." Offending Visual:

Duffy's antics are surprisingly hard to track down, but here's a video slideshow of The Real World: Boston !
