@eliehonig @TMDILL1 @SpeakerPelosi @RepJerryNadler Oh, sneakers have been imbued w/magical properties for years! If you've never read "Dandelion Wine," by Ray Bradbury, you might enjoy it - great book about the magic of summer & sneakers, among other things. (Off the impeachment topic, I'm aware, but, hey, we need a break here.)      source
