One vote shy, again

from th' Library o' Congress

Remember Herblock? Sure you do. He was the Washington Post's cartoonist for something like 170 years, back when they still published a newspaper.(Ok, ok. Just from 1946 till 2001, when he died.That's still pretty impressive longevity.) Supposedly Nixon canceled his subscription to the Post after Herblock drew him crawling out of a sewer. Isn't it interesting how the flag amendment keeps rearing its insert description here head, and gets repelled, albeit by the barest whisker of the chiny-chin-chin of the two party system?
