Happy Fourth of July!

To all my American readers. Happy Wednesday to everybody else.

I'm giving you a choice of Uncle Sams, a young and innocent one and one who wants the troops brought home.

This is an interesting story related to the celebrations: Whether states can require that the American flags they use are made in this country and not in, say, China. There's nothing about them being made by workers who actually could unionize, though, and in any case it might be that the states don't have that right.
