That's what Susan W. Thrane, a self-professed "political junkie," lawyer and history buff, did over a four-year period. Tapping frequent-flyer mileage points and conning her husband and grown children into coming along on some of her cross-country outings, she tramped through all the states to gaze at the symbols of sub-federal democracy.
