It was December 31, 2014. In Shanghai, thousands flocked to the historic and picturesque Bund, where there had been reports a light show would take place to ring in the new year. Unfortunately, too many people had the same idea. A dangerously dense crowd formed, and at a viewing platform in Chen Yi Square overlooking the river, confusion and a lack of crowd control led to panic and eventually stampede. Within minutes, 36 people had been killed and another 49 had been injured in the…

You can see who sponsors NASCAR drivers just by looking at their snazzy suits. So why not have similar dress requirements for politicians?

If that idea sounds familiar to you, it might be because it was made semi-famous following a Robin Williams stand-up skit. In his routine, the late comedian lambasts the flow of money in politics, riffing that members of congress should have to wear jackets tagged with their sponsors’ logos.
