Happy Flag Day — and get a T-shirt, too

15 Jun

The minute I saw the ad for Flag Day T-shirts at Wal-Mart, I knew I had to have some — irony. Yup, no mistake, my quick stop check proved the merchandising coup for what it was. There were the red, white and blue string lights — from China. The patriotic light sticks — from Mexico. And across the aisle, the Faded Glory (yes, that’s a brand) T-shirts with Ol’ Glory on the front, straight from our good friends in Pakistan — home to the Taliban and Al Qaeda. Nothing like flying the flag on Flag Day. And, oh, yes, don’t forget your yellow ribbons, to remember the troops.
