Happy Flag Day (Click for the Betsy Ross homepage)

First of all, happy Flag Day.

Second of all, I got an email from one of my listeners going on-and-on about the origin of the 21-gun salute, and about why the Flag is folded the way that it is.

All of it is false. What makes it worse is that whoever wrote it, originally, obviously spent a lot of time on it, but, certainly knew that it was false. Idiot and moron come to mind, how about you?

Folks, we have SO MUCH to make us proud to be Americans, let us just stick to the facts.

The internet is a wonderful thing, it makes it very easy to check on origins and facts, if you know how to use it.

Let's be careful out there and let Ol' Glory proudly fly!
