Apollo 4 on column of fire

Thomas Jefferson’s Qur’an

Keith Ellison, the new congresscritter representing Minneapolis, is
going to do a ceremonial swearing-in tomorrow using Thomas Jefferson’s
Qur’an, which he has checked out of the Library of Congress using his
Minneapolis Public Library card. (Okay, not true, but lending him the
book they are.)

(BTW he is not my congresscritter, that would be Betty McCollum.)
