I am walking in the direction of a house, and I see displayed in the right-hand half on a window the Stars and Bars — the old Confederate Flag. I groan.

Then I notice on the left-hand side of the window the old Hammer and Stickle — the flag for the old Soviet Union. It all starts to make sense. It’s an ironic mix, or a defunct mix, or something.

Self-described Communists wouldn’t wave that flag — probably choosing instead plain red or a Che Guevra banner or who knows what. Patriots of the old Confederacy would still wave their flag, however, and demand their multi-cultural right to do so with the Yankee and Black’s fully forged respect on the matter.

General Lee and Comrade Lenin — I salute you both.
