I was driving home this evening and I passed a car with more than it’s share of post- 09/11th, flag waving bumper stickers. There was one in particular that stood out. It was the one with an eagle standing in front of a flowing, striped background. The message was: “WE STAND UNITED… THESE COLORS DON’T RUN!” And what about those colors? Rather than the expected red, white and blue; the eagle stood in front of a green, yellow and white background. So what is this person trying to say now, “they don’t run but they may fade”? Do you suppose the driver of this car suffers from an underdeveloped sense of irony?
