Neither did I.
Show of hands -- how many of you remembered today was Flag Day? And not just any, either: It's the sesquicentennial.
(N.B.: I have not flown the Stars and Stripes since the invasion of Iraq; I'm sure I'll be criticized for that [Tam does] but one ambitious tinpot dictator more or less didn't seem worth the U.S. being the aggressor then and it still doesn't now. Am I glad he's gone? Sure. But I'd rather his own people had strung him up from a lamp-post. As for flags, I started flying the Gadsden flag back then; these days, that symbol's been preempted right out from under me but that's okay.)
