I sort of remember that ; I wasn't paying attention I was too busy looking at what I got. It took a few tries to get this one. I can never seem to get a steady in focus picture on a moving subway. It wasn't about him anyway. I was trying to illustrate diversity (and the wonder of six people in a row that were all really over it).

This intermittently screaming at people and muttering to herself queen at least decided to match her wig and her shoes, which I appreciated.
This is the best I have for you today, but I am otherwise always at your...
