I have the good fortune to live in a wonderful neighborhood in southwest Austin that is populated by scores of school-aged children. Our streets are filled with the normal activities kid love, but once in while you will run into something unusual. This evening some kids gathered to march up and down the street brandishing play weapons and an American flag. It was the first time I saw this patriotic maneuver, but probably will not be the last.
