The Flaccid Flag

Robert Steinbeck of the Miami Herald has written a most eloquent accompaniment to my photo. I will be lazy this morning, as I am most mornings, and just pass it on.

I do, however, deserve some small credit for weaving thorough heavy traffic, camera drawn, in pursuit of a plumber with an unfurled 8x12 foot American flag, topped by a golden eagle, mounted on the back of his pick up. I caught up with him at a traffic light, where the wind was out of his sail, and the flag, at rest, bears a distinct resemblance to a dead fish. It's dangerous work out there in the field, but someone has to do it
