See the man in this photo? He is a Frenchman witnessing a bad day in the history of his country. It's 1940, the Allied forces have been pushed back across France, and German soldiers are marching into Paris. This guy has an excuse for crying. If instead he were watching a commercial--about a dad who goes on a business trip, takes photos with his camera-phone, and then returns home to his wife and daughter--then his reaction would not be justified.

Becoming a dad is turning me into a crybaby, and my daughter hasn't even been born yet. It's a weird experience. I don't know how I feel about it. At least it's good to know that I am not alone.
