Change Happens (If Much Too Slowly) Dept: Civil rights icon and Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) tweeted out his long-ago, self-assured mugshot today to commemorate his 1961 release from a Mississippi prison where he served 37 days for "disorderly conduct," aka daring to use a bathroom labelled "white."
