A bunch of houses in my neighborhood have flags out today. It's not any holiday that I know of...

And yes I did Google it. Apparently it is National Beer Day, but that's the only US holiday I saw on the list.

Is there a right wing/faux patriot thing going on today that I haven't heard of?

1. National Beer Day is good enough for me.

Let's run it up the pole and see who salutes!

7. Congressman Hastings of Florida passed away.

CHEYENNE In honor and remembrance of U.S. Congressman Alcee Hastings of Florida, Gov. Mark Gordon has extended the half-staff order for both the U.S. and Wyoming flags through midnight April 7. Pursuant to law, the flags are automatically lowered to half-staff for a sitting member of Congress.

President Joe Biden issued a statement on Hastings' death.

"I had the privilege of getting to know Alcee Hastings during the years when he served in the House of Representatives and I served in the United States Senate and later as vice president. I greatly admired him for his singular sense of humor, and for always speaking the truth bluntly and without reservation," the president said.
