National Portraits

I'm flogging this dead horse again, but the official (i.e., government) salutes to Steve Jobs are really irking me. I paid a visit to the National Portrait Gallery while sojourning in our nation's capitol a few days ago, and in the entry hall among "new acquisitions" was a dedication to the Apple man himself, with a portrait that I breezed past...but no Fred Shuttlesworth! I ask, repeatedly, where is our national memory? OK, back to scrolling through my iPod.
