First off it is way cool. Stars and stripes and red, white and blue. It's a lot more than just a red maple leaf although that doesn't detract from the latter. I always appreciate the attention to history in the American flag. 13 stripes, 50 stars. I always look at period movies whenever they show a U.S. flag to see if there are only 48 stars. You know WWII
movies, etc. I've always liked the British Union Jack too. I remember seeing a petition in Washington, DC in 1990 about getting a prohibition against burning the flag into the Constitution.
To reply privately: If the person posting this message left their e-mail address, we inserted some random characters to prevent spammers from harvesting their address. Spammers do this with automated "bots" that constantly search the Web looking for e-mail
addresses. Since you're a human being, not a bot, you can easily obtain the real address by removing the text that says "ThisisToPreventSpam-XYZ-RemoveThis." including the random number XYZ and the period at the end. For example, <whitten@ThisIsToPreventSpam-123-RemoveThis.despammed.com> would become <chris-(@)-interesting.com>.
