I address this to the ladies and gentlemen of the administration. I noticed while sitting on the green the ragged condition of this college's American flag. I understand that the good governor has most inconveniently stripped us of funding, however, displaying a national ensign of better quality is well within our means. A college striving to become a flagship institution should not be flying from its masts a flag that looks as if it has just survived the siege of Fort McHenry. I do however thank you for at least keeping with protocol and illuminating our battle weary banner at night.
