Nike removed the ”Betsy Ross flag” sneaker because Colin Kaepernick called it racist.

My problem is the four books of flag stamps I bought last month. Don’t know if they are “Betsy Ross” flags; I did go in my senior tool box for my magnifying glass to check them out. What I found shocked me. There was the flag with “Forever/USA” underneath.

President Trump must have had the postmaster general sneak that in. The US flag with “Forever/USA” is even better than “Make America Great Again.”

I guess I can’t use that flag if I send a letter to the Colin Kaepernick fan club, though I could send a letter using a couple of “Betsy Ross’ stamps to Nike.

I have one other problem. I usually hit the Columbus Day sales at the Mashpee Commons. This year Columbus Day in Mashpee is replaced by Indigenous Peoples Day. What will they call the sale, if they even have one? I’m getting too old to keep up with these changes.
