FOURTH: Why did so few fly the flag?

While I was walking my dog Patches on the Fourth of July, I ended up ashamed of our citizenry.

We had to pass at least 80 homes in 30 minutes of walking. I counted only five homes flying Old Glory – and two of those were my home and my neighbor’s.

That’s pretty crummy considering we have many young, true patriots under fire in distant places, fighting to ensure our freedom.
