Volume 29, Number 2

So an Angel Says

Like the young
George Bailey
in the soda shop
declaring that he
has been nominated 
to be a member 
of the National
Geographic Society,
I swell with pride
when the American 
Civil Liberties Union
calls me a Guardian
of Liberty. 
it seems that evil
old Mr. Potter 
has more power 
than ever—but still,
it's a wonderful life.
