  • I am always amazed with how the long arm of coincidence so unrelentingly ensures that what happens in the US one year (tiresome feckless flagwaving) happens in other countries the next. It's a strange phenomenon, but it is useful to give one advance warning of things. (It's definitely the case here in New Mexico, which patterns trend-wise more with Mexico than with, say, white middle-class California.)

    Advance warning in this case: Look for little UK flag pullouts in the newspaper (for you to tape on the inside of your windows) often with an ad for your local real estate salesmen; UK flag pinwheels; UK flag t-shirts with menacing slogans.

    • The first US flag pullouts I saw in a newspaper were in a London tabloid (the Evening Mail, I think) the week of September 11, while I was wondering how and when I'd be able to get back to Washington, so they are already geared up for it.
