I spent more time and energy than I could afford on Tuesday morning fuming at the grotesque spectacle of Nike pulling shoes with the Betsy Ross Flag emblazoned upon them because Colin Kaepernick has “concerns” that it is a symbol from the era of slavery.
I decided that the appropriate approach is this:
Marilyn made this flag when she was in the fifth grade, out of dyed pumpkin seeds. It’s still on display in our house.
Happy 4th of July to you all.
