Stars and stripes

It's Flag Day. Are you flying your colors today?

The National Flag Day Foundation, based in Waubeka, Wisconsin, certainly hopes so.

I was unaware until today that a National Flag Day Foundation existed. I wasn't aware that Waubeka, Wisconsin existed either. But I'm glad there's a National Flag Day Foundation, because Flag Day is a good thing. Waubeka, Wisconsin I don't care about quite so much. (For which I apologize to those of you who may live in Waubeka, Wisconsin. I hope your Flag Day is going gangbusters.)

Of course, when I think about the red, white and blue...I think Wonder Woman. (Actually, any excuse to post a selection from my Wonder Woman art collection is a good one. But Flag Day may be more legitimate than most.) This star-spangled pinup was created by the artist known as "Shade."

May we always honor the principles behind these words:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands; one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
And yes, "all" includes those with whom we disagree politically... a concept too often forgotten in these partisan days.
