Bug Brooches

Madeleine Albright, who served as U.N. ambassador and secretary of state, and died Wednesday, knew how to deliver a diplomatic message without even saying a word. She sent signals with her decorative pins and brooches - and these often included some of our fave animals.....


A snake pin Albright wore was a response to Iraqi officials' description of her as an 'unparalleled serpent" and she once wore a bug pin to let Russian diplomats know that the US was unhappy that a State Department room had been bugged. Thanks for Shannon for the note...
