Before The Shot
Norman Rockwell

That scale caught my eye. My grandfather was a pediatrician and had one in his office. When he retired he gave it to my parents and it was in our house for years. I have it now, and while it was painted several times and kept in a high-humidty environment, it still works well!

I am tempted to take it apart, strip the paint, and restore it to the original finish, whatever that was.

Is that a metaphor for Trump and America?
