I still don’t know whether this is revisionism gone wild or attention-seeking temper tantrums — or maybe it’s just the middling sort rattling our respective left-right cages.

I was disappointed with Kate Cohen’s op-ed stating that we should cede the Betsy Ross flag to the right wing. As someone who has studied American history my whole life and as a historical interpreter and a flaming liberal, I have no interest in doing so. Ross represented an entrepreneurial woman in the age when entrepreneurial women were few and far between. As a Quaker, she likely opposed slavery. I proudly fly the Betsy Ross flag to show my support for entrepreneurial women everywhere, as well as the ideals of America for all time. To cede the Ross flag to the right wing is simply a cop-out. Ms. Cohen should know better.
