I thought I was on the wrong channel when I heard people talking about Miley Cyrus on NPR today.

I mean really, why do people care about this?

Is the subtext that Annie Liebovitz is a lesbian who photographs naked girls?

Yes, Cyrus is "only 15." Our society is so stupidly uptight about sexuality. Let's not forget that the center of the greatest love story of all time--Juliet--was 14.

But beyond that, that Cyrus pic is so benign as to be laughable. One of the callers on NPR said her 6-year-old daughter just wanted to know why the picture made Hannah Montana "ugly."

That's Annie Liebovitz for you, working against the grain.
