The other miracle was the how the vigorous telephoned protests placed by an engaged and vigilant public made the GOP back down on their lovely first proposed legislative act of eliminating the independent ethics committee. Wahoo! Way to start the congressional term right! This successful protest pierces the grey winter sky with a shaft of light.
PS. That Pinocchio figurine was photographed by me and double exposed with the type using the Diana photo app. I’m pretty proud of it.
