us pol/red state misery 

My neighbors are flying one of those "thin blue line" flags, high and proud from their third floor balcony. Half of me wants to go find a rainbow flag to fly to balance out the energy. I have a feeling mine wouldn't fare as well, though.

My father is a dedicated lifelong policeman, so I get that they are underpaid and do a hard job that they're called to do. I'm as proud of his service as he is.

I can't help but feel that they're not really the ones that need the public's support the most right now, though.
