Flags are <i>so</i> last year.

On the subject of trends in patriotism: a friend today mentioned the John Prine song Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore. The song dates from the Vietnam Era, when the nation was sick of war, and when patriotism had fallen out of fashion.

Interestingly, The John Prine Shrine website prominently features a link saying "America Stands United", pointing to a patriotic inspirational 9/11 chain letter/spam/flag thing.
