Condemned to repeat

Santayana was right.

Damn it.

Adam Zyglis in the Buffalo News, Cagle Cartoon syndication

The pedant force pushes me to note Santayana’s quote is a little different (see the upper right hand corner of this blog):

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

(The Life of Reason, vol. 1: Reason in Common Sense)

The thought is not lost. Zyglis is right.

Flying your flag for Mothers Day 2022?

May 8, 2022

Mothers Day is one of those days designated in law as an appropriate time to fly your U.S. flag.

Are you flying yours today?

Interesting to me that so few people make a deal out of flying the U.S. flag on Mothers Day, or Fathers Day, or Christmas or Easter, dates the Flag Code says we should fly the colors.
