Third observation: No state symbol illustrations on endpapers of latest edition of Wisconsin Blue Book

Descriptions of state symbols on pages 950-954 of the 2015-16 edition have been reduced by 1 page in the newest edition.  However, a larger font size (not a bad thing) and additional illustrations have reduced the word count  by 75%, I'd guess.  (Based on a visual inspection rather than an actual count.  You can click on the links and see for yourself.)

"It's a Plain Shame" appears on Peter Frampton's debut album, "Wind of Change", which debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart for the week ending October 7, 1972.  It spent 6 weeks on the chart and peaked at #177.  Didn't come alive, in other words.  It remains one of my favorite 70s albums.
