Well, this is one of the more intriguing photographic mysteries, at least since the famous "Mark Kennedy has an extra finger" brouhaha of a couple of years ago.
As the world of the Internet tells it, there's a reflection of a naked woman in Vice President Cheney's sunglasses.
Cheney's office says that's his hand on a fly rod, a difficult thing to see, I have to admit, once you get your eyes accustomed to seeing a naked woman.
Newsday, however, turned its investigative photography unit loose and concluded:
In one lens of his sunglasses you can clearly tell it is a sleeved arm of Cheney or a fishing companion. The other lens has an extreme distortion that, without looking at it closely, could be misconstrued.
It looks like Mark Kennedy's finger to me.

That is so totally Mark Kennedy's distoredly photoshopped sixth finger! This is now an AP video story on the Yahoo front page headlines. There's no mystery about whether it's a hand holding a fishing rod. It is. But the AP story leaves it as an open question.
