This weekend's summit in Kennebunkport between Presidents Bush and Putin reminds me of the VH1 show "I Love the '80s." The hordes of reporters that used to descend on Walker's Point during the reign of Bush the First have returned, and once again Mainers get to enjoy the disquieting experience of seeing our state reflected back at us through the media's funhouse mirror. Case in point: Mr. Putin hasn't even arrived in the U.S. and already this meeting has been dubbed the "Lobster Summit" because, you see, it's taking place in Maine, which is noteworthy for its seafood and for nothing else. When the two world leaders meet next in Moscow, I'm looking forward to Katie Couric's reports from the "Borscht Summit."
