In its profile of a delegate from Alaska, The New York Times describes Doug Isaacson's first trip to the Big Apple.
The delegate kept in the spirit of a T-shirt seen during Sunday's anti-Bush protest that read, "Intolerance is a beautiful thing."
Mr. Isaacson found out they were going to see a Broadway show, "Bombay Dreams," last night. "Why not 'Beauty and the Beast'?" he asked. "I want an American slice of pie." ...
And then ...
On the way to lunch, Mr. Isaacson and his daughter stopped to have their picture taken with a Statue of Liberty mime. They stood with the mime, looking happy for the camera.
Then someone informed the mime they were Republicans and slowly, even as the camera clicked, the mime unfurled the middle digit of his right hand.
