Miscellaneous Musing #23

I'm not suggesting that people hang the effigy of Emperor Nerobama, but you must admit that it's rather odd that so many buildings in this country display a picture of George Washington instead of one of the sitting president.  This is the equivalent of living in the UK and having a portrait not of Elizabeth II but of Egbert of Wessex, the first person to be recognized as king of all England.
