Google Self-Indulgence Alert

A minor thing, but symbolic of something larger I think.

Today the Google homepage features "Edith Head's 116 Birthday".  I'd never heard of her but apparently she's a fashion designer (I searched via Bing to avoid giving Google the satisfaction).

Google used to avoid adorning their page with their pet people and issues, but a lack of self-restraint, so prominent these days, has shown itself over the past few years. 

How long before C-Span will lose its aura of non-partisanship and almost preternatural lack of self-indulgence?  I assume when Brian Lamb dies.
