Tinky Resurfaces and Cindy Quits

And we thought when Jerry Falwell passed away this type of craziness had ended. Tinky

More flag history. the Star Spangled Banner Flag with fifteen stars also has fifteen stripes. On June 14, 1777, Congress declared the flag to be 13 alternating red and white stripes with a union of 13 white stars in a blue field. In 1794, after Kentucky and Vermont joined the Union, Congress added two stars and two stripes. In 1818, when five more states had joined, Congress again changed the design to 13 stripes, representing the original 13 states, and 20 stars, with a provision that an additional star be added on the admission of each new state.

Can you imagine the flag if they had not reverted to the thirteen stipes? Today there would be 50 stars and 50 stripes.

Cindy Sheehan has quit the anit-war movement, saying that her son (Casey) "did indeed die for nothing." She cites exhaustion and lack of faith in the democrats to bring an end to the war. I hope she will be OK. Cindy . I know a lot of people didn't like her, or her methods, but she was an important voice in trying to bring reason to a misguided administration.
