We’re sitting in the padded seats behind home plate at the baseball game. A gentle, cooling breeze is blowing from right to left across the field. Laura looks up into the bleachers near center field. She turns to me, brow furrowed, and asks…

    Ha ha.

    Notice how Canada doesn’t have that problem?

    Unless it’s Game 2 of the 92 World Series and a member of the U.S. Marine Corps Color Guard “accidentally” flies it upside down.

    Different problem, though.
