A True Story, Best I Can Tell
I know this sounds like the stuff of urban legend, but I had someone tell me this story today, someone with no real interest in exaggerating, so I would tend to believe it.
He was Canadian-born, but recently became a U.S. citizen. At the ceremony, he was given a flag pin that, of course, said “MADE IN CHINA” on the backside.
There's not a single American source of flag pins anymore? I assume with all of the news anchors and politicians, there would be SOMEBODY who makes them domestically, just because.
