It's a terrible thing, when you find out something about the place you live that just makes you embarrassed. Here I am, living in "The Great State of Texas" (and yes, that is a single phrase down here, and sometimes treated like it's a single word, something akin to the single word "damnyankee," of which I am one), and it seems that some public officials have made an error. That in itself wouldn't be all that bad, perhaps, but it's an error that has continued over a number of years. Hence my embarrassment.
It seems that ballots for absentee voters in Atacosa County, Texas, have a depiction of the state flag of Texas on them.
So, as I said, it makes me embarrassed.
