Flag Waving

Captain Ted of the US Air Force was as good as his word, and sent me the flag he'd mentioned before. As the son of immigrants, I'm quite a fan of the US flag, and flags in general, going all the way back to when I decorated my college dorm room with a West German flag.

This one was nicer than expected, complete with provenance on Dept. of the Air Force letterhead and photos of the captain unfurling and flying the flag. It flew over Saddam's palace in Baghdad (briefly). Sure, on the one hand, flying US flags in Iraq smacks of hubris and ugly Americanism, but on the other hand, it's a little piece of history. And it may annoy the most virulently isolationist neighbors.

Now I just need a flagpole.
