Those Mittens

Bernie Sanders sitting on the lunar surface in his mask, parka, and mittens.

On 20 January, there was an inaugural ceremony at the US Capitol. It was cold, for Washington. All the other dignitaries showed up in formal wear, but the imperturbable senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, dressed for the weather like the sensible person he is. His mittens – which are ecologically friendly, being made of recycled materials by a Vermont schoolteacher – went viral. The kindly senator has shown up just about everywhere, including the Sistine Chapel ceiling. I put him on the moon, because he's adventurous like that.
