The phrase "photo opportunity only (cameras and photographers only)" appears 90 times in my inbox.

All 90 emails are from the Prime Minister's Office regarding upcoming events with Stephen Harper.

That line means that if ever an enterprising print, online, television, or radio journalist were to dare enter the event, security would prevent them and, if need be, remove them from the premises.

I know, because I've tried.
