Flags and Billboards Along I-95 South of Richmond

Billboard

My, oh my.

It’s on. Maybe.

I now think that the Flaggers might have been reenacting Jeb Stuart’s decision on July 3, 1863, to fire a cannon in four directions. Some people think he did so to flush out the enemy; others think it was to announce his presence. Neither explanation seems altogether acceptable, but we don’t know for sure.

Certainly, however, the Flaggers’ eagerness for publicity in advance of undertaking the project has made things more interesting. Perhaps Susan Hathaway’s eagerness for microphones and cameras has got the best of her this time.

    Live in Virginia and I barely picked up on the meaning. How about Virginia is for Lovers not Flaggers?
