Happy International Flag Burning Day!

The husband of Helen Hill, Dr. Paul, used to play in an anarchist calypso band called The Troublemakers. True to their name, one July 4th they played a gig at Ernie K-Doe's Mother-in-Law Lounge, and half way through the set they took the crowd out to the abandoned lot next door and burned some flags to celebrate the holiday in true anarchist tradition. What better city to celebrate the spirit of internationalism in then in our city, made up of Native Americans, Africans, Haitians, Creoles, Cajuns, French, Spanish, English, German, Scottish, Italian, Irish, and Islenos people, among others? Internationalism makes total sense in our context!
