Kristin, I wonder how many people know about #6? At the same time how many politicians actually do #6? Hope you had a nice Memorial Day Weekend, Endre

Hi Endre,

I used to go on the Air Base and lived on one off and on when I was younger. If we were driving at 3:00 or 3:30 (can't remember which one) a horn would blow and we would have to stop our car and pause while the flag on the base was taken down. This law in my post reminded me of that.
