The Flag (May 31, 2010)

. . .

“No one on his street displayed one, he observed, before he requested listeners to display theirs.”

“Some displays are unduly nationalistic and even jingoistic.”

“Some are, no question.  However, every person is free to make a personal statement.  Display it during the day and doff it at night or illuminate it appropriately.  Shelter it from the rain and shelter those who elect to burn it.  That is freedom.  That is America.  That is the way to celebrate this day.”

Bumper sticker of the week:

Respect the troops
