A Picture Says A Thousand Words

The White House has been loaned a Norman Rockwell painting to hang outside the Oval Office.

Norman Rockwell’s “The Problem We All Live With,” installed in the White House last month, shows U.S. marshals escorting Ruby Bridges, a 6-year-old African-American girl, into a New Orleans elementary school in 1960 as court-ordered integration met with an angry and defiant response from the white community.

That will give the talking heads something to natter about, won’t it?
