Whether from your perspective our nation is “great again” or just “more better than before” there’s one thing we can all agree on, Old Glory has a checkered background – at least it does in this photograph I took back in 2005 from Big Spring Park.

The building in the background providing the checkerboard is the Colonial Bank building.
