"This may go down in history as the year the penis became omnipresent. A symbol of power since the Greco-Roman era, the phallus's prowess in America's post-fig leaf society has resided largely in its invisibility. But this year the penis suddenly became visible even when it wasn't."

-- Soraya Roberts in an article called "The Package Deal" for Salon. Roberts details all the phallic imagery through history and culminating in America's recent fascination with the male member instead of just ogling women's lady parts.
