Take Your Lapel Pin and . . .

Jim Geraghty’s item on Governor Walker and his lapel pin — the American and Chinese flags intertwined — reminds me of a favorite story. I’m going to tell the story from memory. But the gist is true, I promise. Years ago, there was a Cold War summit, or lesser meeting. Show More Summary
