A handsome, well-dressed man striding through the airport caught my eye, initially because of the jaunty plaid baseball cap he was sporting.
Upon second look, I realized it was South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn.  The cap was quite smart, not only in the sartorial sense.  It was snowing in our destination, Washington, D.C.  Indeed, would that I had had such a cap myself.

As I suppose Mr. Clyburn to be, I, too, am in our nation's capital about serious political matters, namely a piece of research I'm developing on lapel pins.  They're quite the thing here, these little badges....and I wonder how the practice began.  If you have any insight, do let me know.
