YS160116 - Bennington Flag-MFor this year’s patriotic plug, I’ll endorse a book I’m just 100 pages into, but that clearly captures a big part of America. Even though they’re ex-Texas Rangers with nary a Virginian in sight, they’re pretty darn lovable. Would Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne have done a better job than Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones? Tough call.

I get contradictory history on the Bennington flag shown above. I like the story where it was flown for inspirational purposes in the War of 1812. You know, the one we lost. That’s what you get for trying to conquer Canada.

Happy Fourth. Throw another burger on the grill for me. As usual, I’ll bring Mom’s potato salad (never tastes the same twice, but always good).
