On the left, Michael Jackson, who always has a pitch-perfect knack for symbolism, if nothing else. (editor's note: Oh, and look, the Slovakian car owner is getting in the act, too.)

The local ABC affiliate, drawing on national reporting, just identifed Jackson's gesture as his old standard, the victory symbol. Not having followed Jackson's career and consequences since 1982, I had not realized that he was being self-referential. Seems to be a theme.
(In fact-checking the date of the Victory Tour, I discovered that Jackson's first son is named Prince Michael Jackson. I wish I was still ignorant of that.)
